The CT is one such example: The box doesn’t say it doesn’t play music in DOS like it should.
Looks like this card has been mentioned before: Maybe its this revision -B that is just XT incompatible. I’m thinning out nq ISA card collection!
Even on my most modern machines, I had no issue getting these cards to work. The high pitched ringing is bad enough that affected cards should have their Waveblaster capability considered useless. Creative’s cards were known for being buggy in certain circumstances.

On cards utilizing the Vibra chip, a faint ringing or hissing may be heard after digital audio stops playing. Inconsistent Revisions This card is a curiosity: There can be multiple variants of the same CT board, which may have different capabilities.
These cannot be used to uniquely identify cards, however. And there is one small difference if i comparing boxes. However, some CT boards have CT printed on their model sticker.
But for CGA, one of them is on and the other is off depending whether you want it to start in 40 column or 80 column mode. This date supposedly indicates when the PCB was designed. The Sound Blaster Pro and Pro 2 have some specific features and programming that are specific to that line of products.
InCreative Labs released the very first Sound Blaster card. If anyone is interested I can try to post a photo of the card. This will be a constantly updated post as new information becomes available. I think I accidentally deleted my last post: But if you don’t plan to use a Waveblaster header, these should be your first choice.
Be on the lookout whenever you come across these cards. If you don’t end up getting I’ll claim it.

They were incorrectly set the first time, now they’re both on, still same long beep followed by two short beeps. I had J10 and J2 open, the rest shorted People seemed to say that all of J9 should be shorted I tried a bunch of different jumper configurations but certainly not all permutations https: The ones with the true OPL3 chip seem to be quite a bit more rare.
When buying, be wary and always verify with photos.
Creative Labs propelled the home PC industry into a future where sound is seriously considered. Master List Ct892 list is a work in progress. This card is a curiosity: The below picture is not how I had it jumpered when I tested it, just took them all out for illustration.
If so what is another comparable sound card that will work in DOS and W95?
