The jack switches modes if 4-speaker output became active. It is also disappointing considering the incredible popularity and longevity of the Ensoniq ES chipset and its descendants, some of which were still in use six years after the original AudioPCI board, and the fact that DOS drivers for the far newer Sound Blaster Audigy still use “. I know that the green is speaker output, but what are black and red plugins for?? This mode allowed fast, direct access to the system’s entire RAM without requiring a memory manager or memory protection mechanism. If you’re asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem. Pressure from intense competition, especially with the dominant Creative Labs , was forcing audio card makers to try to keep their prices low. It was Ensoniq’s last sound card product before they were acquired by Creative Technology.
