Q: Good sound card for Solaris??

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Fredrik Lundholm, Sep 7, 2003.

  1. I tried to record some music on the Sun and noticed how utter crap the
    sound card in my U60 is.
    (The same audio module can be found in U30 U60, SB1k, and SB2k)

    I know Creative had a solaris card awhile back but I can't seem to find
    it anymore.

    Does anyone have a tip for a card which is decent (sound wise) in
    recording music on the 'line in'?

    Right now, if I choose 16 bit/ 44.1 kHz recording on the U60 the sound
    becomes dumbed down and almost all the treble is missing.

    PCI or USB would be OK.

    Solaris 9.

  2. They dumped it. Their driver only works on Sol8 because they used some
    functions not in the DDI/DDK and surprise, they don't exist on Sol9.
    Kind of a stripped back Soundblaster Audigy anyway.

    I'd pick up a generic PC audio card and buy the OpenSound drivers for
    it. Probably a cheaper solution than the Ensoniq Sun card anyway.

  3. Good idea, seems like opensound has vastly expanded their Sun/SPARC
    support since i last looked several years ago :) ..
