In some previous version of Windows 10, I noticed that you cannot disable the "Allow apps to access your microphone" privacy option if you want Dolby Digital Live or DTS encoding to work. You don't need to grant access to any specific program, but the global mic privacy option cannot be turned off.
Yes, the level meter is moving up and down in relation to what might be heard over the speakers. I may try and look at that more once I get this new case in but for now I am using the onboard sound and it's not bad.

Hi guys,

I've released a modded driver that attempts to fix stuttering, crackling, channel swapping on Windows 10.

https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/t...ows-10.269114/

Let me know if it helps.

What specific settings are you looking for?

In the SBX pro studio app there are like 8 tabs. In the Windows sound control panel there are several others.

Just for the two sound output options

It should look like this

Yup, they look exactly like that, or at least looked like that. I have since uninstalled all the sound blaster stuff and removed the card from the system. Neither of those tabs would tell you much except for which I had selected for my output device. I did have the correct one selected but there was no sound coming out of the speakers. The graph was showing output signal but nothing whatsoever from the card. When I would switch back to the MB sound it worked perfectly fine.
