991020 Audiovation Under Win95B. Come Together, Right On, Over 5580
While I rebuilding a 5580, a questionnaire about Audiovation Adapter /A was posted to the forum A guy bought his Audiovation /A cheap by mistake. He thought it was PCI MWAVE card. As you know MCA connector looks like PCI connector and there is a "MWAVE" logo printed atop the original cardboard box of Audiovation Adapter. He wrote about where he bought it Why should I keep away from buying it if it was a NIB and cost only JY500 ( roughly speaking less than $5.00 ) even though I already had one. It was the time to give a try my 5580 for Audiovation Adapter /A.
Went Louis's page, downloaded Audiovation
section, read it carefully and started to try it under Win95.
1) Sampling Rate PCI, 44.1KHz, 16bit, Stereo ; required
43MB of disk space for a 3'04"" length of
2) Changed sampling rate down to 22.050KHz and recorded 20 seconds
or so and played it back.
About 260MB of disk space are required to record whole tracks of a usual pop music CD and most of CPU power seemed to be used for playing back the recorded tracks. But the important point to me was that a Audiovation Adapter could ( and can ) handle recording and playing CD tracks with it's associated program under Win95. ( Guys, don't blame me that I use Win95. It may be a Kiddy's OS but I don't care for it. It's easy for me to use it. Warp3 is difficult for me and I don't have application software for OS2 )
Anyway, Audiovation worked perfect. Folks, Come Together,
P.S. 1 Advertising leaflets hung at the shop where I bought the Audiovation said;

P.S. 2 The owner of the shop knew a bit about PS/2 and PS/55
