Shame on you, it's the reason i still have a 486 running :) It's the Gravis
Ultrasound! I think Gravis was the first open source minded soundcard
manufacturer offering all the specs for free download. Alsa was originated from
a GUS driver for linux (the Linux Ultra Sound Project). It was also the first
affordable wavetable soundcard for the PC and has always sounded better then a
$ound Blaster imho. It's a very characteristic chip, the GF1, and it's still a
shame that AMD turned it into the most buggy soundcard ever, with their new and
improved Interwave chip...  that was the last GUS ever made... such a shame :'(
