FRAUSS 79 to solve an obnoxious problem, which on my soundblaster z in 5.1 audio games caused me to change channels and crashes, I found a guide that advised me to install this patch on the registry
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ cthda \ HDB \ 11020023]
"HW_CTL_MX_BSIZE" = dword: 00000040
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ cthda \ HDB \ 11020024]
"HW_CTL_MX_BSIZE" = dword: 00000040
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ cthda \ HDB \ 11020025]
"HW_CTL_MX_BSIZE" = dword: 00000040
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ cthda \ HDB \ 11020026]
"HW_CTL_MX_BSIZE" = dword: 00000040
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ cthda \ HDB \ 11020027]
"HW_CTL_MX_BSIZE" = dword: 00000040
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ cthda \ HDB \ 11020033]
"HW_CTL_MX_BSIZE" = dword: 00000040

and indeed it worked.
the question :
but what good is that value and what changes between putting it at 0 to 10 or 40? does quality deteriorate? I don't know, I feel a little worse, but I don't know if it's suggestion

umeng2002 Nope, but then again, I don't use the analog output, just the optical.

Vlada011 Windows is again updated to 1909 version, did you notice some changes in audio drivers. Because almost every update mess somehow with sound drivers.
And I figure out, if everything work properly that's not good for Intel, Microsoft, etc...

I am not sure it is an issue with the Creative Drivers. Someone on one of these forums a while back explained the issues with sound cards and Windows, and it has more to do with Windows and the way they change the way with each update. It seems like every sound card manufacturer out there goes through issues with sound every so often.

But whatever the issue was or whatever they did these patches still work for many people.

But I would like to know, what exactly were these patches released for? Are they official? What is their purpose?

I believe it was one of those patches that worked for me but I am not entirely definite.

It is interesting to note that those patches do the same exact thing, but only one of them works for me. I don't understand why one works and the other doesn't. I do know you have to restart your PC a few times before the patch takes effect though.

I believe sbx_fix is the proper one as the other one is not properly formatted. They both do the same thing and in my case i can import both to registry
