        Release Information

        Product:        ES1887 AudioDrive OS/2 Device Driver,
                        Version 1.03

        Drivers:        ES1887/ES1888 (with ESFM and wavetable)

        OS:             OS/2 Warp 3.0

        Release Date:   September 16, 1996




        Release Description

        The ES1887 AudioDrive OS/2 Driver Software Release incorporates
        new changes done to the previous release, Version 1.02.

        Version 1.03 Changes

        BIOS audio volume control support

        The driver checks the master volume before changing it in case
        the BIOS or other application has modified it.


        ES1888 AudioDrive support

        The ES1887 AudioDrive OS/2 driver can be used for ES1888
        AudioDrive.




        Known Problems

        1. Opening too many MIDI files makes the OS/2 system unstable.
           This problem is related to MMPM/2 and depends on system
           resource.  On systems with 8 Mbs memory, the limit is 3;
           16 Mbs, 6.

        2. Tempo in MIDI files may not be 100% accurate due to timing
           delay and MMPM/2 architecture.

        3. Running MCI commands "seek wave to #" and then "play wave" to
           a 16-bit wave file sometimes generates very loud static
           noise.  Likewise using "record wave from #" to record a
           16-bit wave file may generate wrong file.  It all depends on
           the seek position.

        4. To be able to play and record wave files at the same time,
           the enforcement of only one active wave file by MMPM/2 is
           relaxed.  Therefore, some problems or erratic behaviors may
           pop up if two wave files are played.

        5. The OS/2 driver allows sharing of audio and MPU-401
           interrupts, but it is not recommended.  If both are shared,
           occasionally too much MIDI in data will lock up AudioDrive's
           interrupt processing when a wave file is played or recorded.
           To get out of this situation, stop the wave file, stop the
           MIDI in source, close all MIDI files, and restart the wave
           file to re-initialize AudioDrive's interrupt processing.

        6. Due to the nature of MIDI music, turning MIDI in on while the
           MIDI in data are coming may not generate the right sounds.
           It is recommended to stop the MIDI in source first before
           enable MIDI in.




        Installation Notes

        To install the new drivers successfully the following steps must
        be taken:

        1. Open an OS/2 Window and run the EINSTALL.EXE program on the
           installation disk by typing "A:EINSTALL."  The program first
           runs ESDETECT.EXE to auto-detect the chip, then calls
           ESUNINST.EXE to remove old drivers.  That program will create
           a backup of CONFIG.SYS named CONFIG.ESS and remove the audio
           device lines from CONFIG.SYS.  It also creates a backup of
           MMPM2.INI named MMPM2.ESS and removes the audio drivers
           information from MMPM2.INI.  In addition, it removes any
           other ESS driver information in COMPLIST.INI.  After then,
           the installation program calls Multimedia Application Install
           program, MINSTALL.EXE.

        2. When Multimedia Application Install program brings up, a
           check mark beside ES1887 AudioDrive means that item is
           already selected.  To toggle selection, click the mouse on
           the item.  If WinOS2 is installed in the system, you can
           select WinOS2/Windows Audio support also.  If not, make sure
           that item is not checked.  Click the Install button to start
           the installation.  Once the drivers are installed, shutdown
           OS/2 and reset the computer for the new ES1887 drivers to
           take effect.

        3. If the installation cannot be completed, read the logs
           EINSTALL.LOG in MMOS2INSTALL subdirectory and MINSTALL.LOG
           in MMOS2INSTALL subdirectory or root directory to find out
           the problem.

        4. Since this version of MINSTALL.EXE changes the icons of MIDI
           player and Digital Video player to that of Digital Audio
           player in the Multimedia folder, you may want to change them
           back to the originals.  To change the icon of MIDI player,
           right click MIDI player to bring up the menu.  Select
           Settings, select General, and click the Find... button.  In
           the Start Folder window, enter MMOS2INSTALL.  Click the
           Find button and a window of all found icons appears.  Select
           MIDIPLAY.ICO and click OK.  Close the MIDI player Settings
           notebook.  For Digital Video player, repeat the above steps
           but select VIDPLAY.ICO instead.

        5. If the MIDI plays are not smooth in WinOS2, you need to
           change the timer resolution.  Edit SYSTEM.INI in your Windows
           directory.  Under [timer.drv] are TIMERMax386Res and
           TIMERMax286Res.  You need to change the values to less than 8
           from the default of 10.
