I have 3xopti isa sound cards sound blaster compatible

I would prefer a genuine SB or Adlib but do you have a link, picture or information about your card? Do you have the software?

I have only one genuine Sb16 (Long Card) CT 2290 and 5 or 6 different AWE32 but i have to decide which i'll keep.

I'll try to get the software for opti Sound Cards. And by the way all of them require 16bit ISA Slot. What do you want build a 286 or a 386 system ?

@ Xanxi:

I assume you want it for the bridgeboard :D

Don't look for an Adlib. It will only provide YM3812 FM synthesis and nothing more.
What you want is an 8bit SB card like these:

Sound Blaster 1.5 models (CT1320 series)

Sound Blaster 2.0 models (CT1350 series)

Indeed, it is for the bridgeboard Keropi.
So, let's forget about the Adlib. I would have loved to hear Dune with an Adlib board, as it was made for this board, but SoundBlasters are better, no doubt.

Thanks for the pics Seaside but those are 16 bits boards. 8 bits have the shorter ISA connector.

asctually the SB cards have the same yamaha IC that does the FM synth: the 3812 and they use the same address $388 , so they are 99,999% compatible :) the only difference between those old sb's and the adlibs is their onboard amp that uses different components thus sound might have slight differences... that does not affect compatibility though
