SBlaster Audigy 2: Issues between Speaker Vol / Microphone?


Somewhat eXPerienced
24 Dec 2001
Hey guys,

I'm having a lot of issues with my SB Audigy 2 Platinum setup. I'm utilizing both this, as well as the Creative Aspire 5200 5.1 Surround speakers (Though with 4 + sub instead of 5... one satellite is down). I've been noticing that with the speakers connected, I will only hear the Left and Right Front speakers. I will go into the Windows control panel, and first I had seen that Windows audio was removed, which is new. I was able to reinstall it. Upping the volumes to the rest of the channels will fix the speaker problem.

Then after that is done, I will see that on the Sound Blaster software, my Recording side is greyed out. I don't know how to re-enable it. When Windows audio is working, I can see that recording and microphone are enabled, and I can actually hear myself, but BARELY. I'm trying to download a new driver and hopefully some new software to try and resolve the issue, we'll see how it goes.

Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
