Audigy SE - new user experience
- I'm writing this because I ran into things that I was not prepared for,
even though I had cruised the archives of this reflector. Maybe I used the
wrong search terms, or just didn't hang in long enough on the search, but
here goes (I'll be short):
I was surprised to discover that I had to disable my onboard Soundmax
Digital Audio chip before the operating system could find the card.
When I first brought it up with Rocky, I was distressed to discover what
appeared to be much higher baseline noise and band coverage no better than
my SoundMax. Then I found the "Device Control" app on my Control Panel,
and set it to 96 KHx. Voila!
Not only is there less band noise than before, as well as 96 KHz of
coverage, but the ground loop hum that afflicted my SoftRock Lite at its
center frequency is almost gone. All in all, a pretty good $30 investment.
