Creative Soundblaster Core3D Onboard Audio - Loud, Distorted Sounds - Post here if you have this issue - Page 24

They are always in beta stage. Especially their bioses biggrin.gif. Their new mobos for Ryzen is a joke. And their products with 1021 revisons thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

I installed Call of Duty 4 for test. Guess what. Distortion occurs every 2-3 days. Have to disable/enable audio via device manager to fix distortion. This is hardware problem from 5 years with this creative chip and gigabyte keep use it for their boards.

Just posting a follow up. I had the issue happen again after a very long time without it (about 6 months)

I first encountered the issue when I built my PC last summer around this time. I started that first month of the dreaded "blaring distorted sound" by rebooting each time to fix it.

Eventually I found that turning off the audio enhancements and CrystalVoice seemed to prevent the issue from happening.

After various UEFI updates I would go in and turn the audio enhancements and CrystalVoice back on to see if I could use those features without the distorted audio issues, but the bad audio would always come back within the first few gaming sessions. I would turn the enhancements back off in the softwar, reboot, and continue as usual.

Yesterday I was playing with my Mic and trying to get better sound. I tried using Crystalvoice and IMMEDIATELY got the distorted audio issue again.

I know I sound like a broken record here, but the issue has to have something to do with those features. Without them I have zero problems.
