post #1781 of 5462
Okay, I tried tinkering again and still no results. Anyone want to try Teamviewing my desktop and checking to see if my settings are actually right? I feel like I'm totally missing something that I shouldn't :\

If we still can't net any results, the next step will be to contact both PDP and Creative to see what they have to say.

Does anyone know what the latest driver version is for the ZxR driver? I show 2.04.13.

Also, to install the latest drivers do you recommend just running the .exe file or should I completely uninstall the old drivers first?

Thanks!

best that I can tell you are running the latest driver.
as for driver installs, I always remove drivers using windows add remove programs
before updating a driver.

yeap, that's all you need to clean extra hardware recordings, if you wanted you can clean it out yourself, theres usually only a few keys and folders you need to modify, used to do this a lot on VM's and their multitude of network adapters...

ok so are you able to test with other hardware? either way you should be able to get something out of the headset from the toslink, even if it were just a buzz or crackle...

Little update: I learned that disabling dolby digital live in the Creative control panel actually makes the dolby digital light on the headset tower turn off, so it's definitely getting some form of signal from it.

I don't have any other devices that use optical :\

hey everyone

I just bought SB Zx yesterday, its my first sound card after a very long time. Few years ago, I had another SB card where I could do the following:

when using mic, I could add custom effects like concert hall, bathroom or similar and have the sound directed with that effect directly from the speakers, so when my children were singing into the mic, it was possible to hear their voice from the speakers enriched with that effect.

Is there something like that on SB Xz.

sorry, I am complete noob in this beautiful audio world smile.gif

Nutshell answer to your question:
Yes, CrystalVoice FX.
And then check the box for "listen to this device"/"monitoring"/whatever from either the Creative control panel (Mixer tab?) or windows sound settings for the mic.

Alright, well my speakers have a desk-mounted volume dial. If I plug my headset directly into the headphone port on it with a double sided 3.5 jack, I get perfect sound through them. I also learned that the USB on the tower is used exclusively for the microphone, which is why I get mono whenever I use the headset as a default device. Since PDP's own instructions are to keep the headset disabled as a playback device, I really don't know where to go with this card. I've already uninstalled and reinstalled everything twice.

EDIT: I'm an absolute idiot. There's a dial on the headset that allows you to put more sound towards games and more towards programs like teamspeak. For some reason, having it all the way up towards games in the proper setup caused it to play no sound. All is working now, and the sound quality is phenomenal. Thank you all for the help, even though it was something this damn simple tongue.gif.
