PC-Soundman is a starter kit which Rainbow Arts sold for 249 DM in Germany, over 800 F in France, and likely other countries. The kit consisted of a sound card, headphone, 4-watt active speakers, FM-Driver (W16), Rock'n Roll (DOS), Logical (DOS), but no cable. The sound card is 100% compatible with the Ad Lib Music Synthesizer Card at port 388h and the Covox Speech Thing at port 22Fh. It uses the same Yamaha YM3812 (OPL2) chip for FM synthesis and features a slightly more condensed circuit board.

Games

Palladix, who had already scored 6 games for Rainbow Arts, listed the PC-Soundman in all their setups from 1992 to 1993.

Emulation Status

PC-Soundman is emulated by everything that emulates an Ad Lib Music Synthesizer Card at port 388h and a Covox Speech Thing at port 22Fh.
