That one is from 19 Feb. Already got it when it first came out according to the site.
I found somethin Gents
I read the changelog Tinuva posted and it didnt look right.... I remember pissin and moanin about the lack of updates for the period of time spent in developement. Others agreed that a Korean lang fix and a right click menu was poor as well given the length of time between updates. Take a look at this!
Heres the original announcement from Devla a few pages back:
And here is the "new" changelog still referencing the old 1.1 from Feb:
A bit diff there wouldnt you say? They added the improved encoding efficiency line to the list of improvements. This directly addresses my lag problem which i have been reporting as getting better and better as drivers get released \ Windows 7 gets improved. I also note that the DTS Neo upmix Bug was REMOVED from the "new" changelog. Very curious. I'm gonna get this driver pack again and compare it file for file with the 1.1 I DL'd when it came out initially.... if there are any differences in any sizes \ versions I'll for sure keep you gents posted.
Good find Tinuva.... even if the drivers are the same theres something worth lookin into here
Hang on so why not rename driver to 1.2 ? Dam confusing this .. so if i download this 1.1 now , it is a later version than .1.1 19th of feb .. :3eyes:
I am confused as a Baby Raccoon...
They appear to be the same in every way. So far I see no version differences... all the sizes seem the same.
It almost looks like they "forgot" to include the fact that the encoder was sped up and stabilized and "forgot" to mention the DTS bug was corrected.
I dont get it either.... why the ommissions? Why the change to the improvements silently?
Still working on the compare.... maybe somethin will turn up.... if somethin does then I'm with U Nam. Why not call this ver 1.2? or 1.11 or somethin
Yea does look like they missed posting the changlog .. they should do version 1.1/2
I guess its possible they edited the announcement on the 21st March, and that made it re-appear on my RSS reader?
If so then my mistake for thinking its actually a new driver. I have lost track somewhere, since I am still on RC8.0 anyways with no problems on Vista x64. I know, too lazy to re-install, but I see no need while my PC is working just fine.
the S/PDIF TOSLINK Optical Digital Cable you get with the card has anyone bought a better one and found any sound differance..
i have changed Coax leads before well over the years on m home system .. but with this being a Optical lead (light and all that) will it make a differance ..
i don't think there'll be much of a difference in sound quality by getting a better cable. as we all know, it's a light signal that transmits the data over the fiber connection. Not like having a gold connection will help or anything like that.
yea that is what i was thinking.. but the cable i am looking at does look good
that's always fair enough.
so stay with the standard lead?
what I meant is that you're not sure if there's gonna be any noticeable difference in quality, but at least you know you're gonna like it based on the looks. don't take me too seriously, though.
it's also surprising exactly how flexible the fiber optic cable is, too. I mean... i'm not really forcing it, but even just by how much it'll bend on it's own accord is surprising.... for being glass fibers anyway.
yea understand ... seriously me never lol ..
yea seen few optic cables that are not made to bend , i.e makers heavy as well .. not good really as there designed to just pop out of socket.. odd ..
Just one question out of sheer curiosity...
does the prelude need the resampling: 44.1khz => 48.0khz, in media players (foobar2000, winamp, etc) that its ancestors (live, audigy) needed?
If you mean 44.1 --> 48.0 --> 44.1 , then no, at least not in audio creation mode over the digital output with the volume sliders maxed or bit matched playback enabled.
Troubles in Paradise - W7 64-bit Drivers
So, is anyone else having trouble getting their Prelude to work in Windows 7? I have tried the drivers on Auzen's website as well as Daniel_K's "Support Pack". I am confident in my ability to install drivers however I just can't seem to get these to work correctly. These things have a way of making a guy feel rather incompetent. LOL :bang:
Just to clarify and lay all important variables on the table, I have tried installing Auzen's drivers while in Vista Compatibility mode (Does it matter if it's SP1 or SP2?) as well as default. I have not yet tried to do this with K's pack but I might do that shortly. Getting rid of driver/software remnants and restarting ~10 times really starts to get old.
I understand that Windows 7 is still BETA and is not on Auzen's priority list and I completely understand that but man, I just can't go back to my on-board audio. It's unbearable.
You try disabling UAC and then installing it, as I think that would mess with the drivers not wanting to install.
I dont have a prelude any more so I cant walk you thru it, but these guys can.
uuh.... i've never had to disable UAC or anything to install the Prelude drivers. I have the latest ones from Auzentech's site.... and i just install them as usual. Since i have both the analog and fiber optic cables attached, it defaults to the fiber optic, and i just have to switch it back. If the drivers installed fine, check the playback devices section if you right-click the volume icon in the system tray. It might have something else set as the default.
