THIS IS THE FUTURE OF SOUND AND MUSIC.
QUALITY WAVETABLE SOUND WITH THE CONVENIENCE OF PnP
The UltraSound Plug & Play sound card make use of the highly-integrated InterWave chip developed by Advanced Micro Devices. The InterWave was developed as the result of a joint venture between Gravis and AMD utilizing Advanced Gravis' UltraSound audio technology. The Interwave chip is the first to provide integration of the MPC-3 multimedia requirements. This integrated technology allows Gravis to deliver more honest reproduction of sound and reduce the card's cost without sacrificing the quality of the other components.
EFFORTLESS PC SOUND, UNLIMITED SOUND POTENTIAL!
Being a Plug & Play device, UltraSound installation couldn't be easier. Just whack the card into your PC, load up Windows 95 and follow the instructions. If you're running under DOS, Windows 3.1 or linux, never fear as there is superb support for those platforms as well. Concerned that the UltraSound is skimping out on any features? The AMD InterWave chip was a pioneer in full-duplex sound, being able to record and playback at the same time--invaluable for Internet phone or video conferencing. Have we mentioned that it's expandable to up to 8MB of RAM at all? The Pro version even comes with 512K of RAM built in. Unlike other digital sound cards, the UltraSound supports up to 32 channels of hardware mixing with inbuilt linear interpolation, so your sounds always come out at CD quality.
