Working condition

The AdLib used Yamaha's YM3812 sound chip which produces sound via FM synthesis.

The AdLib card consisted of a YM3812 chip with off-the-shelf external glue logic to plug into a standard PC-compatible ISA 8-bit slot.

It was the first add-on sound card (on compatibles ) to achieve widespread g...ame-developer acceptance, becoming the first de facto standard for audio-reproduction. PC software generated multitimbral music and sound effects through the AdLib card, although the acoustic quality was distinctly synthesized. Digital audio (PCM ) was not supported, a key feature supported by later competition (such as the Creative Labs Sound Blaster.)
