X-Fi Titanium HD: Post your settings (headphones & speakers)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I know many people recently acquired this card from the Best Buy sale tongue.gif

So post what settings you are using in each mode Entertainment/Audio Creation/Game for both headphones and speakers!

Speakers:
Windows is setup for 5.1 Surround
Game mode
CMSS-3D enabled
Crystalizer 80%
EQ flat
Mixer EAX enabled
Speakers set to 5.1 in Creative Console

Headphones:
Same as above with CMSS-3D disabled

I am still playing with the settings to figure out exactly what works best for me.

i am using custom driver for my X-FI HD and my Headset is Beyerdynamic DT235
http://www.hardwareheaven.com/pax-download-pcie-x-fi-series/212036-new-titanium-hd-titanium-driver-test-thread-2.html#post1428737


my settings on Creative Audio Control Panel are
Mode: Game Mode
Speakers Headphones, SVM On or Off(most of the time) depending on what stuff i am listening
EAX Effects: Off
X-FI CMSS 3D: Enable, X-FI CMSS-3D Virtual Macro FX: Auto, ElavationFilter Auto
X-FI Crystalizer: Enable 65%(most of the time) or 100%


for me that is the best all around settings.


Entertainment mode alters the sound way too much so i never use it

I Already had the X-Fi HD prior to that massive sell at best buy tho, I got it with a Gift card a friend gave me from newegg. For other stuff I changed the op-amps on my X-Fi HD as well as installing one into my headphone amp.

For Music players I use ASIO.

Windows Dev Preview
Headphones

Game Mode:
CMSS 3D Headphone
EQ on Flat

Windows Speaker settings and games config to 5.1(spreads the sound out and the setting to make CMSS3D headphone work the best)

music,Music recording/Movies
Audio creation mode
2.0/2.1 Speakers setting in both mode and windows
Bit-match playback
EAX Disabled and no CMSS.


Windows 7
Headphones

Game mode:
2.1/2.0 Speakers Including windows sound config and games.
CMSS3D normal
EQ Flat

(Must have THX panel installed to do Tweak, yes it works. Only needed for headphones with huge or big sound stages)

THX.ini - changing the First line in the file to 2=90 changing the direction of the Front Left/Right speakers. Works best for me as Headphone mode messes up my headphones sound signature. Note I didnt feel like doing this for my windows Dev preview.

I use the same settings that I use in windows 8 dev preview For listening to music in windows 7 boot.

are the pax drivers much better than the creative ones? I'm interested in this!

Only use PAX drivers if your having issues with creative original drivers, They do tend to work if you have issues with creative drivers, tho he does have sound tweaks in them as well.I have used his drivers in the past and they do work very well too.

What kind of OP Amps are you running in your X-Fi HD ? I've switched them out on my old ASUS Xonar Essence STX, but not sure what people recommend for the X-Fi.

I switch between all the modes based on what I'm doing.

Entertainment mode when I'm watching a movie.
Audio Recording mode using ASIO when I'm listening to music on Foobar
Game mode on games

Flat EQ on all.
EAX enabled only on Game mode

Stock settings pretty much. I don't know when I see a possible upgrade in the OP Amps and such. Maybe when I'm bored one day.

The info is in my sig, But I have Two LME 49720NA in the I/V, then the Default LME49710NAs in the buffers, Then I opened up my Fiio E9 and changed it's OPA2134 to LT1364CNA8.
