     cms - Creative Music System device driver

     cms0  at isa? port 0x220
     midi* at cms?

     The cms driver provides support for the Creative Music System (C/MS).
     These cards were developed by Creative Labs, the same people who designed
     the SoundBlaster cards.  Chips were available for the SoundBlaster to
     make them compatible with CMS.

     The CMS cards are only capable of playing basic notes and noises, making
     them suitable for playing midi, but not much else.  The output is stereo,
     but the cms driver doesn't support stereo control.  The cards have
     external volume control, line-output and speaker.

     The base I/O port address is usually jumper-selected to 0x220.  Valid
     jumper settings are for 0x210, 0x220, 0x230, 0x240, 0x250 and 0x260.
     There are no interrupt settings.
