The Canon Objectstation 41 sound system driver is designed to support the on-board audio system of the Canon object.station 41. The Canon system uses a chipset that is compatible with the Microsoft Sound System and includes an integrated speaker and microphone. The driver supports 16bit play and record capabilities. The driver is a derivative of the existing NeXT Microsoft Sound System driver with an additional initialization routine required by the specific chipset.
