i've had my Audigy1 practically since it came out and am pretty happy with the card itself. Creative's drivers, on the other hand... i have a digital 4-channel speaker system hooked up to it. after a fresh boot any sound (music, games, anything) lacks bass and overall depth. what i have to do is open Surround Mixer, switch the speaker mode to 2-channel or headphones or whatever, and then back to 4.1 and the sound gets noticeably louder and clearer. this is the case no matter what mode it's set at when it boots (headphones/2/4-channel, digital/analog)... i have to change the mode to another and back again to regain the lost quality. Surround Mixer has been in my startup folder for years. has anyone else heard of or experienced this? or better yet, know of a fix?
