Sound Blaster ZxR - Studio Pro changes do nothing. Help?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN.
So I've got a new Sound Blaster ZxR and a set of Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro 250 Ohm headphones to move away from 'gaming' headsets.
I'm having a few problems I can't seem to solve.

First: I get no sound at all unless i use 'configure' in 'playback devices' and set it to Stereo. Flicking it to 5.1 turns off the sound and I get nothing, not even in the Pro Studio. I've read that you can have it in 5.1 to make use of surround mode..?

Second: making ANY changes in the Pro Studio software does nothing, doesn't change the sound, effects or levels etc at all... I can slide bars, tick boxes, even turn the sound down on Pro Studio's volume control and even that does nothing...

So what am I missing? SO keen to experience this sound away from gaming headsets... =(

on the ZXR, control panel :

speaker/headphone tab :
=set to headphone, if you got speaker set to speaker(if below 5.1 speaker set to stereo)
=on sbx pro studio tab turn it on (on-off icon there) check the sorround adjust to whatever you like (65% and above recommended for headphone)
you done, you gonna get the sorround ^^

about in control panel yeap you need to stereo, that's your output device...

it's just simple on/off on sbx pro studio sorround,it automatically emulate to sorround, depend on the source ch.

try on 5.1/any multi ch source) movies you'll feel it right away, or any game ^^

about 5.1 thing that the max analog output zxr support don't bother it if you don't got 5.1 speaker/ or 5.1 headphone)

on your sound control panel make sure "allow application to take control,,,,bla bla thing checked"

and make sure the driver installed correctly, and previous sound driver before ZXR uninstalled clean
