Sound effects are still glitchy in DOOM and the synth still gets itself hosed.

The single output jack claims to be line level but is plenty loud and noisy. To add to this, I also had some doubts about this working at all in a DOS 6.

And indeed it doesn’t start I also tried hooking up a Roland through the joystick port, no luck. Found crfative the Creative stutter some times in DOS.
