Sound in DOS emulators

For DOS EMULATOR you should ALWAYS check for the SET BLASTER envirnment setting string in you autoexec.bat.
Proceed as follow :

Type "SET" at the DOS prompt. If the Set BLASTER string is not listed add it just type "SET BLASTER=Axxx Iy Dz T4" where xxx is the Soundcard base addrees (normally 220), y is the Soundcard IRQ address (normally 5 or 7) and z is your Soundcard DMA address (normally 1). To know them you can check the settings in the Control Panel of Win9x by giving the CONTROL PANEL/SYSTEM/DEVICE MANAGER command, choose your Soundcard and clicking PROPRITIES/RESOURCES. A good idea is to add the string to the AUTOEXEC.BAT. Just run Notepad open autoexec.bat ( located in c:\) and add the "Set..." somewhere. Restart the computer. Once that done you will not need to check for the string again.

This imply that you have a Soundblaster compatible sound card.

This does not apply for emulaots which offer nativesupport for other soundcards such the Gravis Ultrasound or Ensoniq Soundscape....
