Default Sound card question

Hello, I have a Creative 7.1 Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series sound card. When playing music, you can hear it 'shift' volume from the front speakers to the center speaker throughout the song. The rear speakers also shift. Is there a way to fix this? I did not have this problem with my previous creative sound card. Thanks for any help.

Hello,

Do you have the latest drivers for the sound card? Are you using XP or Vista? Have you checked the Control Panel Sound settings?

Cheers,
Mak

Hello,

Sadly this is a known issue with Creative Driver and Vista. Some of the features are missing from the Vista Drivers that are included in the XP Drivers. Such as the ability to setup your surround sound setup. Along with the Equalizer, THX settings and much more. Creative has done this so that they can promote ALchemy. I would suggest trying to see if you can get that program. It should be available for download from their site.

I have suggested that people use the DanielK drivers. They are a bit outdated compared to the current drivers but they have all features unlocked. There is a thread in the Audio and Multimedia area that has more info on this if you wish to check it out.

Cheers,
Mak
