Advanced Digital Chips Analog Devices AD1816 Sound Driver

Due to the wide range of hardware available for this architecture, it is impossible to exhaustively list all combinations of equipment supported by FreeBSD. Nevertheless, some general guidelines are presented here. The Transmeta Crusoe is recognized and supported, as are icompatible processors from Cyrix and NexGen.


There is a wide variety of motherboards available for this architecture. Perusal of the archives of the FreeBSD symmetric multiprocessing mailing list may yield some clues. The default FreeBSD scheduler treats the logical processors the same as additional physical processors; in other words, no attempt is made to optimize scheduling decisions given the shared resources between logical processors within the same CPU.

Because this naive scheduling can result in suboptimal performance, under certain circumstances it may be useful to disable the logical processors with the the machdep. This version successfully played the CD Audio without a miss.

But this is where all the problems started… Once done playing with the game, I decided it was time to exit back to Windows and continue getting this machine setup and ready for use. But as Quake exited back to Windows, the screen went black with lots of garbage, and the system hung.

- No Scams, Just Free.

Forced to reset the computer manually, I ran Quake again. And again, upon exiting back to Windows, the system crashed and the screen was full of garbage. Deciding that this was likely a software issue with the video card, I decided to download proper drivers for it. But, as fate would have it, I am also somewhat limited on non-AGP video cards.

Instantly the computer knew I had changed something and asked me to run through the Hardware Wizard, which very politely asked me to insert the Windows 95 disc, and took care of the driver situation. And upon rebooting Windows, everything seemed to be in order.

Fantastic, now time to try Quake! Launching the DOS Quake, as a known working version under the previous card, all appeared to be well. And then I decided to run WinQuake.


To my surprise, it too ran just fine. But now for the real test, will it crash upon exiting? I reluctantly decided to give it a try, and upon exiting from the game all went as it was supposed to, and I was back in Windows! Note the manual volume adjustment knob. ISA-8 bus.


The resulting sound was generally described as "beeps and boops" which resulted in the common nickname "beeper". Several companies, most notably Access Softwaredeveloped techniques for digital sound reproduction over the PC speaker like RealSound.

The resulting audio, while functional, suffered from heavily distorted output and low volume, and usually required all other processing to be stopped while sounds were played. The AdLib had two modes: A 9-voice mode where each voice could be fully programmed, and a less frequently used "percussion" mode with 3 regular voices producing 5 independent percussion-only voices for a total of The percussion mode was considered inflexible by most developers; it was used mostly by AdLib's own composition software.

Creative Labs also marketed a sound card about the same time called the Creative Music System. It sounded much like twelve simultaneous PC speakers would have except for each channel having amplitude control, and failed to sell well, even after Creative renamed it the Game Blaster a year later, and marketed it through RadioShack in the US. It was incorrectly called a "DSP" to suggest it was a digital signal processora game port for adding a joystickand capability to interface to MIDI equipment using the game port and a special cable.

With more features at nearly the same price, and compatibility as well, most buyers chose the Sound Blaster. It eventually outsold the AdLib and dominated the market. The cards were often poor at sound effects such as laughs, but for music were by far the best sound cards available until the mid nineties.
