Well I haven't obtained any cards yet, I do not want to buy one off fleabay and find out it doesn't work because it wasn't the exact one required. I'm not after video, just the audio part, so I can use the DS10 like a jukebox or something.
I see Island is selling a card known to work, but it's kinda pricey.

I am using an unsupported controller that clue config identifies as Ensoniq AudioPCI.
It must be one of PCI ids 0x13711274 or 0x58801274 since those are the only two in the sys$user_config.dat file on my system. It is using a patched driver for VMS 8.3/8.4, not the stock driver.
I have not been using MMOV much because the Radeon Video card is too advanced for the supplied
Do you have any way of finding out the PCI ids for your cards?
If you install MMOV, it updates sys$system:user_config.dat with the PCI ids of the sound cards that it supports.
I was not able to find the PCI ID with a system /analyze, the output was unclear. All I know is that the sound card was sold by the vendor as being Alphaserver PCI.

It's very strange, I ordered what was clearly listed as an Ensoniq from island and it turns out that it's a compaq premier sound CT5805? The analyze system shows it identifying itself as an ensoniq PCI.

Ok, never mind, the audio officially works now. Seems that the autogenerated config refers to a driver that does not exist, but the one I received from an undisclosed location was named right and the AU device appeared at reboot. Now I've got it playing music.
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
