These products were rushed against a year-end release deadline.

The Monte Carlo card was reviewed as having stereo so poor it should be considered mono.

Audio Advantage Card was the second product to play Satie. Seer had high hopes this 12-bit PCMCIA card would give us the initial market for synthesis on laptops. Apparently the market disagreed; you don’t see many of these little guys around.”);

#5,977,469 Real-time Waveform Substituting Sound Engine

Date of Conception 19941202.
Application 08/784,372

A sound engine in a processor-based system utilizing real-time synthesis optimizes synthesis time, maximizes the number of fully-synthesized sound requests and preserves currently excessive sound requests. During synthesis, the sound engine attempts to full-synthesize all requests. If the sound engine determines that remaining sound requests are excessive and cannot be fully-synthesized, it preserves each excessive request by synthesizing a substitute waveform segment. If the sound engine determines that limiting the number of preserved requests is required, it synthesizes a concluding waveform segment for and then discards selected requests during selected synthesis intervals. Both substitute-synthesis and discarding of sound requests are achieved with minimized detrimental impact on ongoing sound performances.

Issued 19991102.
This was basically a vanity patent of questionable value that I allowed, and allowed to expired.

The paradigm case for Intel native signal processing NSP at Comdex.

Satie was Seer’s name for the system.

SoftNotes was how Intel Marketed it.

Professional announcements presuppose adoption, and by this time Wavefront-VS was the name used by Intel’s first licensee Integrated Circuit Systems, which had acquired Turtle Beach. Of no small coincidence Dave Taylor had attended my first Intel MIDI presentation, quietly guarded the project for Intel’s Strategic Marketing Division, and having left for ICS thus was in a perfect position to negotiate the deal, which included consumer releases via Turtle Beach.

They did not at all like the idea that our VxD had control over the CPU’s main interrupt.
