I acquired a Mega 4 that has two mods in it.

 

1. AdSpeed St

2. DigiDesign Sound Accelerator

 

I found the software that each needs and the manual for the AdSpeed.

 

I have two questions

 

1. Does anyone have or know where I can get the manual for the DigiDesign Sound Accelerator?

2. Why does it show nearly 14 megs of RAM in this computer.  It does not look like it had a memory upgrade.

As you can see it is a nice clean installation.  The computer is very stable.  Case needs cleaning bad though.

Incorrect ST RAM size indication indicates some error.  And ST RAM can be max 4 MB.

The AdSpeed has cache memory.  I wonder if that is throwing the amount off?  It does show that there is only the remainder of 4 megs free.

 

In any case, I have not run into any errors with anything I have run, limited as that is.  No bombs have popped up.  Access to floppy and Hard Drive works well.  Video adapter from Exxos site works as expected.

 

I have attached the manual if anyone is interested.  The pages are in jpg format.  I did not create it, I just zipped it up as is.

I have an AdSpeed board in my Mega ST4 that runs my BBS.

 

I don't recall any software incorrectly showing the memory size.

 

Something odd there.

I will have to play with it some more.  I used SysInfo.  It also has the DigiDesign Sound Accelerator board installed.  I will recheck it without that board in place.
