The currently shipping version of the EnsoniqSoundscape Driver is designed to work with both the jumpered I/O hardware as well as the newer software-configurable Plug-and-Play versions. Detection and support is provided for the Soundscape line plus many third-party compatibles, such as the NEC Harmony sound card. Installation and configuration are made simple by a full-featured custom interface for the Configure application, with driver-specific online help.

The driver has hooks to support a mixer application for managing the hardware's on-board ten channel stereo mixer. The mixer application is currently implemented as a Preferences bundle extension available from Sound Consulting.

EnsoniqSoundscape requires NEXTSTEP Release 3.2 or higher or OPENSTEP for Mach Release 4.0 or higher on Intel-based computers (486, Pentium, Pentium Pro, etc.). In case you are not familiar with NEXTSTEP or OPENSTEP, please be aware that no version of Windows or Solaris is supported.
