Gravis Sound Card Classic/MAX/ACE Driver
I started talking with this gentleman and eventually convinced him to let me take a trip to his house and see what other stuff he may have. I took home a healthy share of various SB clones mostly of the ESS variety, but a Gravis Sound Card Classic/MAX/ACE Yamahas were in there as well and some S3 Virge cards all for free.
I built a computer with some of these parts, enough to play Doom and Heretic and started hitting up vogons and was reading some fanboism on the Gravis UltraSound cards. Where did I hear that name before?
Oh, yes, in my mid-late 90s days of Doom I remember the setup. I did a lot of research on the card. Reading about how it used wavetable synthesis instead of FM.
Gravis Sound Card Classic/MAX/ACE, you can upload real MIDI-like patches to the cards RAM to get exceptional sound quality out of these older games and this also opens the window to creating your own patches if you wanted to tweak the sound of the songs. I got a refund, but a few days later I noticed some Gravis Sound Card Classic/MAX/ACE had a broken leg and I soldered this and it started working! Doom Enjoying the sound, I started loading up other titles I played a lot back then that I remembered supporting this card: Descent, Heretic, Duke3D, Quake 1.

The music sounded great, but the digital voices had some weird clicks and somewhat static-like sound at the end of their samples. I amazingly got the SB and GUS living in the same machine after a few hours of fiddling around with some jumpers and tweaking autoexec. Originally, I used one of those stereo to stereo cables. There are some shortcomings of the classic cards, the main being the Win9x drivers have no Gravis Sound Card Classic/MAX/ACE support, only software emulation and usenet says that this had unpredictable results.
Another annoying thing was no volume mixer! The exception to this was the v3.
Doubling up on the baseport, i. Considering the card was fairly hard to find, at least from what I researched at the time, I contacted the Gravis Sound Card Classic/MAX/ACE about paying half now and the other half in a few days. He agreed, and asked that I send it as a gift via paypal.

Cleaning the entire board off with electrical contact cleaner, reseating the contacts on the socketed chips, reflowing solder joints, replacing capacitors, but nothing ever brought it back to life. I tried it in 3 separate PCs and got no results.
I setup daily searches for ebay to alert me immediately of any GUS developments appearing. Bij wavetables gebruikt men een sample dat afkomstig is van het betreffende instrument. Bij een wavetable zal een piano daadwerkelijk klinken als een Gravis Sound Card Classic/MAX/ACE, een klarinet als een klarinet, Daarnaast konden deze klanken nog getweakt worden en kon de kaart 32 audio-kanalen gelijktijdig gebruiken.
Ondanks het feit dat de kaart iets duurder was dan deze van grote concurrent Sound Blasterovertroefde GUS sommige professionele muziekkaarten. Desondanks ging het bedrijf failliet. De architectuur van de kaart was voor systeembouwers moeilijk te implementeren.
Verschillende spelontwikkelaars hadden problemen om hun Gravis Sound Card Classic/MAX/ACE te laten werken met de Gravis-kaart. Ondanks Gravis regelmatig updates uitbracht van hun drivers en spelproducenten patches uitbrachten om de kaart alsnog te laten werken, kwamen deze moeilijk bij de eindgebruiker.
