      Hi Stewart,
      I'm also running the Audigy SE and get half the b/w I would have 
      expected. Could I just check I'm doing the same as you >

      No I still have some MP3 mode selected - I never touched that.
      In the "surround mixer" window, REC is set to line-in.

      In the mixer I have everything with a red x except line in and master vol. I *think*
      that it was running this and selecting these options that switched into the correct
      driver mode.

      The spectrum is the right width in both PowerSDR and Rocky. I have
      not tried any of the other s/w yet.

      I will get the signal generator out this evening and check the balance.

      Rocky and KGK both show half b/w spectrum.
      btw: Can't get this card working with PowerSDR. Any luck with yours?
      Also, I think this card needs delayed channel compensation - at 
      least mine works better like that.
      Any comments appreciated

      Yes, instaling the creative s/w packages and running the mixer 
      fixed it. 
      I am not sure why. 
      The mixer seemed to say that it was in line i/p mode when I ran it,
      but after toggling between mic and line a couple of times, and 
      off the other i/p sources, I re-ran rocky and the b/w is now

      Hi Stewart.
      I am using ths SoundCard, and it works very well.
      Make sure you have installed the " Creative EAX console".
      And set it to 24 bit 96kbs.

      I have a soundblaster Audigy SE and I find that even
      in 96KHz sampling mode the the audio cutoff is about
      25KHz (i.e. I see about ± 30KHz of spectrum and
      at that point I am on the noise floor).
      The card seems to have a single universal analog
      input for mike/line etc, so I imagine that I am
      hitting the upper limit of the input amplifier.
      Is this normal for this card?
      Is there some config that I need to do?
      I have the aux connector connected is that making a
      Do I need the digital interface unit to get it to work?
