    it's maybe because Auzentech's come bundled with some creative apps, like mediasource...?

    yeah, and like it's been already mentioned, daniel_k used the most powerfull archiver in the whole planet: 7-Zip. :)

    my bad, it's not the new driverpack that stops my mic from working...

    just a quick question:

    is anybody using these drivers in windows7 x64 with more than 4gb of memory?

    and if so, is your microphone still working in the control panel:

    on here with windows7, if i install the drivers with 4gb or less, the mic works.
    but as soon as i plug in another 2gb, the mic stops working and even removing the extra mem does not fix it after it's been disabled.
    so far the only way i've fixed it is by restoring an image

    i've been testing all evening. i installed and backed up a fresh windows7 and have just been trying the drivers with different memory configs.

    the mic seems to work just fine with the drivers and 6gb in vista tho (pic above is from vista64 sp1 with all 6gb installed) *shrug*

    figured i'd ask in here before submitting another ticket to auzentech

    Is it possible to perfectly configure the speakers with the thx panel, without a measurement microphone?
    At first i was scared because i thought i had to buy a microphone to configure the speakers settings perfectly. But after seeing a screenshot of the thx panel i think it's possible just by setting the speakers distance and angle. Anyone has tried doing so, and can confirm if it works good?

    If it is anything like the old creative thx console/panel i used , all you do is measure to your setting postion, then put that measurement into each speaker..

    So do i simply need a meter and measure the distance with it? ^^.
    How do i exactly measure the angle? Is there a simple formula (don't remember from high school)?

    yea measure tape, and distance from you to speaker simple as that, forget angle. once all mearsurements are put in the DB settings for each speaker go higher or lower to level the volume to your seating postion , also the measurements should be in meteric:thumbup:

    no need to run a sound Field program like REW or CARMA :)

    What's that? Couldn't find anything concerning audio with google.
    The Thx panel also set's the latency for surround speakers...doesn't it?

    nah, I just ignore all that technical stuff. I forget about measuring and setup my speakers the closest possible to this graphic, just without caring too much about angling, distance. just eyed-measured.

    Getting Alchemy to work with Daniel_K's X-Fi Support Pack 1.0.

    I was to get Alchemy working with my Prelude and Daniel_K's pack by doing the following.

    Go to Auzentech's site and download the standalone Alchemy installer. http://www.auzensupport.com/data/ALXF_PCVTAPP_LB_1_00_11.zip

    Download the latest Alchemy release from Creative: http://support.creative.com/downloads/welcome.aspx

    When you extract the zip file from Auzentech you will have an executable, and the download from Creative is also a executable.

    Using the archiver of your choice (I used 7-zip) right click on each executable and extract all of the files from them. You'll notice that they look the same.

    Delete the directory named Alchemy from the Auzentech pack.

    Move the Alchemy directory from the Creative pack to the Auzentech pack.

    Run the installer for the Auzentech pack and reboot when prompted to. You should now be successfully running Alchemy.

    The reason you'd want to do this is that the Auzentech Alchemy pack was created on September 2007, while the latest Creative release is from July 2008. You can't run the Creative installer because it says you don't have a supported card; however, the Auzentech installer will work. By replacing the outdated Alchemy directory from Auzentech with the latest one from Creative you can force the latest Alchemy release to be installed.

    Do you uninstall the Alchemy drivers first? Auzentech site says you should before installing the driver packs that contain the Alchemy driver. If so, how? I do not see anything in the Add Remove programs other than the complete Auzentech Drivers.

    I didn't need to download the pack from Auzentech

    I just downloaded the one from Creative and extracted the files to a folder.
    Copied the engine32.cab file into the Alchemy folder and ran setup from in there.

    I had no complaints that my card was not supported, Alchemy installed without a hitch and asked to reboot after

    Daniel K's support pack psted here earlier is the best to date...all things for me are supported and despite the lag still being present I now have the THX console so kudos to daniel K..... despite how some ppl feel about him

    Thanks for the tip on the engine32.cab file. I knew something was missing since you couldn't directly execute the setup.exe that was in the Alchemy folder.


    I'm not sure how you would uninstall just the Alchemy drivers from the Auzentech driver packages. I had the Daniel_K pack installed and I did a full uninstall of the Auzentech pack and then ran Driver Sweeper. The problem is that Daniel_K's pack doesn't include Alchemy. You could just try installing the latest Alchemy over the top of your existing install and see what happens.

    Hey Rob! I got a question and I know yer the man to ask it to!

    No doubt you've heard about the XFi Forte 7.1 that was released.... I'm sorry if this is asked elsewhere.... but:

    How does it compare to the prelude? Is it nothin more than a slightly dressed up prelude on the PCI-X bus with a low profile possibility?

    Thanks! and sorry if the answer is elsewhere

    Zyro

    EDIT: Oops! If anyone else has input on the matter toss it in by all means...or point to the thread where its being discussed! lol

    Yes, the Forte' is aimed at a different market then the Prelude.
    I will be testing out one very soon, Look for the review!
