This card added 4 speaker surround sound for games, and a hardware Dolby Digital decoder. Increased integration means the board can be simpler and trace routing to components is reduced, decreasing the amount of noise-inducing signal travel. It is an add-on board for PCs. It offers a similar feature set, but also has a few notable improvements. Retrieved from ” https: The six extra phono plugs sub, center, left rear, right rear, digital in, digital pass-through and the extra Dolby decoder chips were placed on a second board which connected to the main board via a ribbon cable.

The technology, called WaveGuidesynthesizes the instrument sounds rather than using stored instrument patches like the hardware voices. The AWE64 creatice in two versions initially: As such, Creative had no control over their sale. Functionality of the hardware was nearly identical. Views Read Edit View history.

The boards were based around the AWE32’s E-mu sample-based synthesis chipset, E-mu effects processor, and a Creative audio DSP and codec for digital sound playback. Increased integration means the board can be simpler and trace routing to components is reduced, decreasing the amount of noise-inducing signal travel.
The inability to adjust synthesis parameters, unlike with the hardware portion of the AWE64, also limited the WaveGuide function’s usefulness. The adapter came in two variants: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This page was last edited on 4 Novemberat Unfortunately, during this card’s time, the issue of compatibility with older legacy DOS applications accessing PCI audio cards had not been ideally addressed. Without this motherboard port, the card was incompatible with DOS software.
It is an add-on oabs for PCs. This card added 4 speaker surround sound for games, and a hardware Dolby Digital decoder.
In other projects Wikimedia Commons. This not only demands more processing power from the host system, but also is not of equal quality to available SoundFonts. Ct3480 improvement also comes from increased integration of components on AWE64 compared to its predecessors.
It offers a similar feature set, but also has a few notable improvements. Another improvement comes from better on-board circuitry that increases the signal-to-noise ratio and overall signal quality compared to the frequently quite noisy AWE32 and Sound Blaster 16 boards.

Unfortunately, these additional voices are achieved via software-based processing on the system CPU. The project was dropped in favor of the Sound Blaster Live!
Although the adapters themselves can no longer be ordered, the design and manufacturing files remain available for download for personal, non-commercial use.
Retrieved from ” https: The card was launched in November Use dmy dates from May A third version that arrived later, was designed around the PCI bus. The six extra phono plugs sub, center, left rear, right rear, digital in, digital pass-through and the extra Dolby decoder chips were cct4380 on a second board which connected to the main board via a ribbon cable.
This made the board even more compact, and thus cheaper to build.
In response to Creative’s move towards a proprietary memory module, Jeff Briden created an adapter board that plugged into the AWE64 and allowed the user to install normal pin SIMMs.
Quality of components and output was improved and cost of manufacturing was lessened.
