Most likely he likes having the option to swap op-amps.
command prompt no long works after 2-26-18 AE-5 Pure Edition update
windows 10 Pro 1803 -1733 RTM
the program made some registry setting that somehow won't let me
open a command prompt ,it just opens and close ,running admin makes no difference
the entry is in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor"
here is what is put there ,if I remove it,explorer won't autostart
It just hangs and I have to enter explorer.exe on the task manager
@mode 20,5 & tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq SoundMixer.exe" 2>NUL | find /I /N "SoundMixer.exe">NUL && exit & if exist "C:\Users\bigci\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoundMix er\SoundMixer.exe" ( start /MIN "" "C:\Users\bigci\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoundMix er\SoundMixer.exe" & tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq explorer.exe" 2>NUL | find /I /N "explorer.exe">NUL && exit & explorer.exe & exit ) else ( tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq explorer.exe" 2>NUL | find /I /N "explorer.exe">NUL && exit & explorer.exe & exit )
can this be modified to lake the command prompt work again?
Are you using the latest drivers that are on creative site? As the latest drivers came out on the 26th of march. Did you make sure to remove your onboard driver's and or the sound card you was using drivers prior to installing them? I haven't had that issue with the command prompt not opening up with the latest or any driver release. Also is that an test release of windows 10 or the latest retail built of windows 10.
What the hell is SoundMixer.exe anyway? Some kind of malware (at least looks like it after a quick google search)?
yes,these are the current (3/26) drivers
I removed the other sound cards (realtek and stx II) as well
creative either put that command or altered the original one
I will reinstall them and see today
Creative didn't that's for sure. It's more likely that the realtek and xonar drivers didn't uninstall properly.
I figured it out
the soundmixer crap was realtek
the registry entries were boinked,I had to reset the explorer reg entries
are you enjoying the card so far?
malware for sure, isnt in the creative drivers. His rigs riddled.
a little disappointed at the 32/96 mode in 5.1,I think it's a little deceiving
but it's works good in foobar
The vocals are soo much clearer than my stx II 7.1
I like the sound footprint though
systems clean,it was just some leftover realtek stuff
I figured it out
Stereo, 5.1 and headphone 7.1 are limited to 32bit/96khz because it is using the DSP chip, Direct Stereo and Direct headphones settings are 32bit/384khz. The Direct modes by passes the DSP and go directly to the Dac chip which is why 384khz is only available the Direct modes. So basically you would need to select Direct(stereo) or Direct(Headphones) if you want to enable the 32bit/384khz function.
Also if you do use Direct Headphone output mode, then you may want to check the volume slide it down, since some times using the direct cause an glitch with the volume setting being higher then normal. Which get fixed when you lower the volume, it doesn't happen all the time.
Also If you watch blu ray movies and happen to own Windvd, the AE-5 will playback Full 24bit blu ray audio DTS-HD and DD-MA without being down-mixed.
That just happened to me! I thought my soundcard was malfunctioning or something. Another "bug" I've noticed as well is that if my PC goes into sleep mode and resumes, sometimes the crystalizer, surround and bass settings will be turned off. To turn them back on I have to switch to another mode, and back again.
By the way, which mode do you recommend for gaming? Do you think Direct Headphone output can be used for gaming, or is that just for listening to music?
Depends on what you're using. Normally I use the Headphone(7.1) + Surround 67% with the other settings turned off when I game, When I listening to music, I tend to use the Direct Headphone mode. With Speakers I tend to use Stereo.
I'm using Sennheiser HD 598 headphones.
Yea those the settings I normally use when I using either my R70X or my JVC HARX 330 for gaming.
In foobar2000 ,it seems ti only let me reencode at 24/96
I guess the goes along the record lines ,is there a way to rip /convert using 32/96 ?
Okaaaaaaaaaaay.. is this a bug or what in the name of God am I doing wrong?
I have the Logitech z5500 speaker system. I have connected it by SPDIF. Can it really be true that I cannot use any of the settings in Sound Blaster Connect? When I press "Test" to test the sound settings nothing comes out, however, I can still play my regular music and such??
When I press test it seems like the sound comes out of the "Speaker" playback in Windows?
In mixer section I enabled the "Play stereo mix to digital output"
Why on would you do such a thing? You are only downgrading the audio quality by doing so... Resampling CD quality audio. 16 bit to anything higher is lossless operation but doesn't make any difference. Upsampling only introduces sampling artifacts.
when I download sacd's they come in ISO format
so I need to recode to flac and separate .I'm actually down sampling
to 24/192 5600 most of the time
This card can't play this back at 24/192 not encode
my stx II 7.1 could
