Section 1. Introduction

1.1 Product Overview
The Audio Excel PnP 310 is a stereo 16 bit PnP sound card. It is compatible
with Sound Blaster 16 and Microsoft Windows Sound System. Especially it
supports Plug and Play function for all interface. The Audio Excel PnP 310
also supports MPU-401 interface for Wave Table Synthesis upgrade and
supports 3D surround sound function. What we provide at the side of sound
card are line-in jack, micro-phone jack, audio output jack, and a 15 pin
D-SUB multiplexed joystick/MIDI connector.
If your PC motherboard BIOS supports Plug and Play (PnP) function, while
PC booting, the motherboard PnP BIOS will locate I/O resources for all
interfaces automatically to avoid I/O conflict. But, all of your interface
cards using I/O resources must support PnP function. Otherwise, I/O
conflict still occurs at sometimes due to PnP BIOS cannot find the
interface card which does not support PnP function.

1.3 3D Surround Sound
Our 3D surround function takes any ordinary stereo signal as input and
produces an output signal with dramatically widened stereo imaging and
enhanced realism.
And requires no extra speakers or special encoding of input signals.
You can turn 3D sound on or off by program CMMIX.COM at DOS. At
Windows you also can turn it on or off by Audio Rack mixer. And you can
run Windows applications DEMO3D to test 3D surround sound functions.

1.4 What is SPDIF IN/OUT ?
SPDIF is a digital audio IN/OUT standard. It support a non-distortion
stereo 44.1K 16bit digital audio transmission. You can get digital audio
through SPDIF IN from CD-Audio digital output or the other digital audio
output. You also can output digital audio through SPDIF OUT to those
equipment's that accepted SPDIF IN format.
The Audio Excel PnP 310 SPDIF IN function is design for non-distortion
digital recording from digital audio output of CD-ROM (or other
equipments), not for playing from these equipments. Therefore, if you want
to record from your CD-ROM digital audio output through Audio Excel PnP 310
SPDIF IN, please connect CD-ROM analog and digital audio cable to sound
card. Make sure that volume of CD(analog audio) in mixer is ON and volume
of Dig-CD(digital audio) is OFF. Then you can playing from analog audio and
recording from digital audio for the best effect. If you turn on the volume
of Dig-CD(digital audio) in mixer, due to some CD-ROM drive design,there is
noise input during CD-ROM door open or close. Besides, SPDIF can not adjust
volume. So we recommended you to follow the steps that describe above.

1.5 What is Plug and Play ISA Standards ?
The ISA bus architecture allows allocation of I/O address spaces, DMA
channels, and interrupt levels among multiple ISA cards. However, the ISA
interface has no defined hardware or software mechanism for allocating
these resources. As a result, configuration of ISA cards is typically done
with jumpers that change the decode maps for I/O spaces and steer the DMA
and interrupt signals to different pins on the bus. Further, system
configuration files may need to be updated to reflect these changes. Users
typically resolve sharing conflicts by referring to documentation provided
by card manufacturer. For the average user , this configuration process can
be difficult and frustrating. A Plug and Play-compliant system can identify
the Plug and Play ISA cards and the resources they use, then program these
resources so they do not conflict. The conflict-resolution scheme used on
Plug and Play ISA cards essentially puts all cards 'to sleep', then reads
the card identification and the information about what the card can do and
the resources it requires. This information can include what resources are
programmable and over what ranges they can be programmed.
With this information, the system can configure the card in a way that
prevents conflicts with other cards in the ISA bus.

1.6 Wave-Table Upgrade Board
For saving one I/O port and one IRQ channel, we disable MPU-401 MIDI
device as default value. If you want to output by wave-table (MPU-401 MIDI
device): In DOS (also Windows 3.1), please run CMINIT.EXE to enable MPU-401
MIDI device.
In Windows 3.1, please add MPU-401 device drivers at first. Click on

Section 7. Questions & Answers

Q1: Can we keep the PnP function of Audio Excel PnP 310 even on a
Non-PnP motherboard?

A1: Yes, but you have to use Win 95 and install the drivers properly.

Q2: When Audio Excel PnP 310 and other NON-PnP interface cards are
installed on a same motherboard, anything we need to do during the
installation?

A2: In this case, please install the NON-PnP cards first and make sure
that the cards work normally (no matter under DOS or Win 95), then
install Audio Excel PnP 310. Thus, the motherboard can reserve the
I/O resources for the NON-PnP cards first and afterwards makes the
installation of PnP card easier.
If there is any conflict happen still, you have two way to go. One
is to adjust NON-PnP device driver setting and jumper on the card.
Another is to click "System" icon at "Control Panel" group, press
"Device Manager" and find the "sound,video and game controllers"
item. Double-click on it, there are interrogation mark shown in
front of conflicted devices. Double-click on these devices, press
"Resources" and clear "Use automatic settings", choose lastest item
of "Setting base on:" and press "Change setting..." button then
select a no conflict value and press OK button. Make sure all items
of "resource type" are not conflicted. Reboot Windows 95 system,
conflict will disappear.

Q3: Why some games auto-detect the sound card to WSS mode, but I/O can
not fit to the current setting?

A3: Windows Sound System (WSS) supports registers for applications
(game) to set IRQ and DMA channel. Auto-detect function of some
games uses these registers to set IRQ and DMA channel by itself.
Because our sound card supports Plug and Play functions, I/O
resource must be allocated by PnP BIOS or Windows 95. Allocating
I/O resource by applications will cause I/O conflict with other
interface cards. Users should decide sound card's mode by
themselves.

Q4: Why there are repeat sound playing while Win 3.1/95 starts?

A4: This is because some I/O(IRQBDMA) conflicts between adapters.
Please adjust I/O resources of all interface cards, especially
non-PnP cards.

Q5: What is "Full-Duplex"?

A5: "Full-Duplex" can manage "Recording" and "Playback" (WAV) at the
same time. This function makes the two-way dialogue under Internet
IPHONE possible.

Q6: Does "Full Duplex" function of Audio Excel PnP 310 work in
Windows NT/3.1?

A6: We're sorry that "Full Duplex" can only work in Win 95 at the
moment.

Q7: Why the person on the other end of IPHONE cannot hear my voice?

A7:
1. Make sure you have set the "Recording Control" under "Mixer" of
"Audio Rack" to "Mic". Then use the "Mixer" and "Wave Player" of
Audio Rack to test whether MIC can record and playback normally.
Finally use the MIC test function in IPHONE to assure the volume
table of the MIC will re-act.
2. Please set the "recording device" and "playback device" under
IPHONE to "WSS(534)".
3. Set the "record and playback" under Win 95 to WSS(534) too.

Q8: I've already setup "Full-Duplex" in IPHONE, but why the sound card
still works like "Half-Duplex"?

A8: Please note that there must be Full Duplex's on both sides of IPHONE
users then Full Duplex can work properly.

Q9: Why there are no sound output during play MPEG file by MPEG card?

A9: Maybe Line-out of MPEG card didn't connect to Line-in of sound card
or Line-in volume be muted in mixer.

Q10: Why there are no sound on MIDI play in Windows?

A10: Perhaps you don't have wave-table synthesizer, but your MIDI device
set to MPU-401.
Please check by following procedure:
1. Click "Start", "setting", "control panel".
2. Double click "Multimedia".
3. Select item "MIDI".
4. Check the informat of "Single instrument', in normal case, it
has: "C-Media inc. External MIDI (MPU-401)"
"OPL2/OPL3 FM Synthesis" (Default device for MIDI)
5. Make sure, you are setting to "OPL2/OPL3 FM Synthesis"

Q11: How can we execute DOS Games in Win 95?

A11: You can execute DOS Games in Win 95 by three means:
1. DOS Prompt - Because this is under Win 95 protect mode, some
S/W's cannot be executed 100%.
2. Shut down to DOS - Most of the DOS Games can be executed.
3. Press "ALT-F5" or "F8" when boot-up - 100% DOS Games can be
executed.(Refer user manual section 4.2)

Q12: Why detect sound card to half-duplex when MS NetMeeting setup?

A12: Because of our sound card use two wave devices when use full-duplex
function. You must select playback device to "Sound System Playback"
and set record device to "SB16 Record" when setup.
