Rocky, WinRad, SRv6 and USB Soundblaster Live
- Hi All,
My sons recently gave me a new Compaq Presario laptop with Conexant
sound chips. The internal sound system is recognized by both Rocky and
WinRad. However, the sound quality is poor.
Consequently, I have purchased a Creative SoundBlaster Live 24 bit
external card. Everything seems to work great on 48kHz sampling.
However, when I go to 96kHz sampling, I appear to be getting an
increased noise level, and the spectral display shows a significant drop
in signal level beyond about 25kHz. In other words, even though the
programs recognize the 96kHz setting of the SB Live, the usable spectrum
is limited to +/- 24kHz, not the +/-48kHz that I expected.
I get similar results with my SoftRock40 and my 2-band SR6.
Has anyone in the group had a similar experience with the external (USB)
SB Live card? If so, were you able to resolve the problem? Are there
some settings for the SB Live that I have likely missed?
Thanks in advance,
- sb live external is only usb1.1 and can't do much more than barely input the
stream at 96khz. you'll need to have the output use your existing sound
if you get much other activity on the pc it will drop it down to 48khz as
the driver runs out of bandwidth.
been there, done that...
