Announcing the


The aim of the Soundblaster Freedom Project is to provide a cheap
source of programming information for the Soundblaster and other
sound cards. Previously, programming a sound card has required a
not inconsiderable investment in a developer's kit for each sound
card. These developer's kits have been known to be terse and not
well written. Our aim is to provide enough information to the
general programmer to allow them to add sound card support to their
software at minimal cost.

Currently I am collecting information on the Soundblaster and the
Soundblaster Pro. Anybody who can supply sample code or hardware
programming information is welcome to send mail to

[email protected]

Any other suggestions or comments can also be sent to the above address.
Please bear in mind that I am also pretty busy with a research project
at the moment and may not be able to respond to your mail straight away.
As time permits I will try to respond. Also please note that due to
local developments, the SBF files are not available from
wench.ece.jcu.edu.au or paladine.ece.jcu.edu.au as has been noted in
previous versions of SBF. The only place to find the archive for the
moment is on oak.oakland.edu in the Simtel-20 archive.

The SBF archive is availabe for anonymous FTP. It can be found on

Machine: oak.oakland.edu
Directory: /pub/msdos/sound/sbf3.zip

There has been much interest expressed in the project, both from
programmers and people with hardware information. Please help to
contribute and make this project work.
