Yes, devices designed for the parallel port might have trouble playing with modern hardware, cnotroller you’re just as likely if not more to have drivers that don’t run on modern operating systems and are closed source so you can’t do anything about it.
Rather than outfitting every computer with a complicated and slow port we can have faster, smaller, and more flexible solutions using extra processors in our devices. I’ve been considering trying to controler something using my Raspberry Pi or get into Arduinos to try and fix it, but I’m not really capable with hardware stuff. I’m hopeful the CH chipset eases the pain of supporting non-tech end users with these things.
Stereo sound was introduced in the early s, cotnroller quadraphonic sound came in Instead of bricking fake chips, the latest FTDI drivers will inject garbage data into a circuit. He decided to build a reproduction Ad Lib.

I see that sort of thing as being useful in situations where the PC is required anyway, like a lot of covlx lab setups. I’ll probably end up getting one when more chips are supported.
USB of course is shared and totally non-deterministic and just maintains a long term average bandwidth.

The low end of the market used commodity PCs ruining the signals out the parallel port. One example is the TurboSound.
DJ sound cards sometimes have inputs with phono preamplifiers to allow turntables to be connected to the computer to control the software’s playback of music files with timecode vinyl.
