These synthesizers were often reasonably faithful to the Yamaha OPL3 chip, which was an important feature for the time as some competing solutions, including Creative’s own CQM synthesis featured in later ISA Sound Blaster compatibles, offered sub-par FM sound quality.


Crystal audio chips in the series from CS through CS appear frequently as the integrated audio on motherboards, where they provide Sound Blaster Pro 2. There’s quite a range available, depending on the cards model. The level of the speaker output in this case is comparable to the maximum line level of a more typical sound card. Usually the complaint is “EMM incompatibility problem: It has its own configure script and can be built separately:.
