I've been using the EAX 4.0 drivers for about a month now but i'm not really happy with them . I get reduced sound volume when compared with previous releases which really limits my Logitech Z-680 speakers :mad:

I don't feel like using the ones that came with audigy card either cause they're quite old. Does anyone have the latest drivers prior to the Eax 4.0 release?
Any links where i can download them? Or would someone be kind enough to e-mail them to me?

Thanks.

If you find the drivers for the audigy card let me know I'd like them also. I replaced the soundblaster live 5.1 with the audigy card and to be perfectly honest with you the soundblaster was better. At least with the drivers i'm currently useing and audigy card in comparison. Maybe some different drivers might work?

Not all the 'latest' drivers are the best to use (as you have experienced).
Sometimes you should just stick to the one you had the best experience with rather than update it to the lastest ones everytime one is released.

Kx is good if you're not a gamer, as there is no EAX support.

I tried the KX drivers and was very dissapointed with them.
The intface program was very unclear and poorly designed (which i could have put up with) but unfortunatly no 6.1 support so scrubbed them :)

Pardon my ignorance, but does anyone here notice the difference with EAX on and off? I can't hear it. What should I be listening for so I know what I'm missing? What is EAX, in Creative Labs' estimation? If it just adds reverb when you're in a cave in a game, I'll be rightly pissed.

EDIT: Some info on EAX. http://eax.creative.com/gaming/
I still can't hear what they're talking about--rather, I can, but it doesn't sound different to me.

Also just noticed that the KX driver has different skins to use.

Now is as good a time as any to download the KX Drivers. It only takes a minute to install and about three minutes to configure them for surround.

the audigy is definitely compatible with XP Pro.

Have you tried installing the drivers in safe mode?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
