All it does is set the 'HW_CTL_MX_BSIZE' var to dword 10 for devices 11020023 to 11020027 and 11020033, found under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\cthda\HDB\.

Please do upload the patch I cannot find the mentioned keys in my registry. I can confirm the new driver did not fix the channel switching issue and I still have it. Sigh.

The newest driver only supports the standard Z model (of which the Zx is the same model but with the ACM), of which from what I've seen it does diddly squat to "fix" any bugs bar apparently dropping the volume of RL slightly for headphones (but not speakers), don't know about the buffer corruption though.

I think I worked out the EQ equivalent of the crystalliser at 50%, at least for my speakers anyway;



Basically it just has to be a smooth curve of 1-2db through the high frequencies, with the mids dipped a little lower. The lows can be ignored depending on what sized bass drivers you have (mines 8", hence the aggressive boost to the far lows).

I don't really have a need for drivers on this card anymore, I can do it all in software...

I seem to have ran into an issue with my sound blaster ZX, which is causing my audio to mix with my mic, which allows people to hear my audio. I have tried the new driver for the Z series to no avail. Does anyone know of a fix for this?

What mic are you using and are you using speakers? the ACM mic isn't great with speakers as it's a condenser that picks up everything around it.

I'm not using the in built ACM mic. I'm actually currently using a A40 headset with the inbuilt boom mic.
The audio doesn't always leak through to my mic and can happen after an hour or so also weirdly. Is this common with he Z series? as I have tried two of them with both the same result sadly.
