creative audigy no bass?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
plugged my old SB Audigy into my rampage formula, installed drivers, and plugged in my headphones. I was greeted by the amazing sound of music with zero bass whatsoever. I dont have that control panel junk installed either....I have a hunch that its in 5.1 mode so naturally only the sub channel gets the bass but im not entirely sure.

if anyone knows what might be up with it please let me know, thanks!

EDIT: its also really quiet. 100% volume in windows and win media player is not loud at all. and its not my headphones either cause I hooked up some speakers and its the same.

Which operating system is this in? I mean, I know that your sig rig says WinXP, but I don't want to just assume it because for all I know we could be dealing with an entirely different system. smile.gif

Anyway, I think that if you want to be able to control the bass, then you need to get the special control panel. That way you can EQ it, you can adjust the bass boost, you can do whatever you want. Otherwise, you're only limited to Bass and Treble in Windows (and the built-in Graphic Equalizers in media players like WMP).

I am running win 7 x64.

probably not the best choice for such an old card. It worked flawlessly in XP, though it matches this cards age so im not surprised.

I cant find a "special control panel" either....

guess I will just live until tomorrow when I can get another sound card I know works with 7.

Unsure if it fully works with Win 7 as it's quite old but no bass is usually due to your output (speakers, headphones) rather than the card.
