As computers became more powerful, the features offered in “intelligent mode” became obsolete, as implementing them in the host system’s software became more efficient than paying for dedicated hardware that will do them.

Please post a follow up based on your findings.

Well, I can do a DOS 6. B,aster the midi ports though, you should be able to have a decent number depending on the addresses available for use on the different cards. Retrieved from ” https: Jazz Chorus Micro Cube. Or even another ISA sound card?
