No difference between Audio creation and Game Mode

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I literally cannot tell the difference between these two modes, however, I see almost everyone else swearing by audio creation mode. I followed the head-fi thread and set up my audio creation mode and I still couldn't hear any difference, am I missing something or is it just me?

Gaming mode normally has the cmss thing enabled by default. You may have yours turned off so the difference isn't quite as noticeable. What does your setup consist of?

Disregarding my speakers, just the sound card and my Grado SR325.

Do you have bit matched playback enabled in the audio creation console? I'm assuming that you're using music to test this out. What player are you using?

Yes I have that enabled, and I'm using Winamp with an ASIO plugin.

edit: woops, I meant a WASAPI plugin.

Do you have headphones selected as your speaker setup instead of 2.0/1? That made a difference for me. Also make sure you have the DTS/DDL encoder turned off. Try another audio source as well. Something could be off somewhere in your Winamp settings. Can you tell a difference in games?

I have it set to automatically switch to headphones when I plug them in. DTS/DDL Doesn't work unless I have a 5.1 Set up, and I still can't find any difference with any other headphones or speakers. I can only tell a difference in games when I enable CMSS-3D.

The headphones plugged into the back of the card, or front panel?

Tried with both, same results on each end.

Don't use the front audio connections. I know it's a pain in the ass but you don't get all the benefits as plugging directly into the card. That's very odd that you can't hear a difference though. That chinesekiwi guy wrote a guide for the X-fi and frequents this section, so he may be able to pin point where the problem is.
