Soundcards

 

At one time PCs were "seen, but not heard". Well, you could hear the occasional beep or squeak from the built-in speaker, but that wasn't much. Creative Labs changed the PC landscape forever by popularizing its Soundblaster sound cards, and the computer world has never looked back. Today it's hard to find a modern PC that doesn't have sound capabilities that put the original Soundblaster to shame. But how is the sound produced? This is not a simple question, but we can at least start answering it!
