A third version that arrived later, was designed around the PCI bus. As such, Creative had no control over their sale. This card added 4 speaker surround sound for games, and a hardware Dolby Digital decoder.

These memory boards were priced rather high.

Increased integration means the board can be simpler and trace routing to components is reduced, decreasing the amount of noise-inducing signal travel. The technology, called WaveGuidesynthesizes the instrument sounds rather than using stored instrument patches like the hardware voices.
The inability to adjust synthesis parameters, unlike with the hardware portion of the AWE64, also limited the WaveGuide function’s usefulness. A third version that arrived later, was designed around the PCI bus.

This made the board even more compact, and thus cheaper to build. Views Read Edit View history. In response to Creative’s move towards a proprietary memory module, Jeff Briden created an adapter board that plugged into the AWE64 and allowed the user to install normal pin SIMMs.
Quality of components and output was improved and cost of creztive was lessened. This page was last edited on 4 Novemberat The improvement also comes from increased integration of components on AWE64 compared to its predecessors. Another improvement comes from better on-board circuitry that increases the signal-to-noise ratio and overall signal quality compared to the frequently quite noisy AWE32 and Sound Blaster 16 boards.

It is an add-on board for PCs. Functionality of the hardware was nearly identical. The card was launched in November Although the adapters themselves can no longer be ordered, the design and manufacturing files remain available for download for personal, non-commercial use. Unfortunately, these additional voices are achieved via software-based processing on the system CPU.
This not only demands more processing power from the host system, but also is not of equal quality to available SoundFonts.
Unfortunately, during this card’s time, the issue of compatibility with older legacy DOS applications accessing PCI audio cards had not been ideally addressed.
