LGR Oddware – Digispeech Plus Parallel Port Sound Blaster

April 23, 2021 by 17 Comments

Sound Blaster over the parallel port?! YEP. This one’s all about the DSP Solutions Digispeech Plus, a Sound Blaster-compatible sound device for DOS and Windows PCs that connects via the parallel port. It’s not restricted to simple OPL2/3 stuff, nor is it a Covox Speech Thing/DSS clone. The DS311 simply plugs in, runs a TSR, and lets you select Sound Blaster mode in classic computer games using nothing more than the humble printer port. Fantastic.
