    Hi,

    I just got my SB Z and I notice it has the ability to import/export sound setup profiles.

    would anyone care to share some profiles that they use for games /music etc...

    id like to experiment a little

    many thanks

    Settings that work for me might not work for others. My headphones are pretty low on bass so my EQ reflects that. I'm also adding some bass via SBX

    No PAX here. Creative drivers work great.

    Still messing around with settings atm. I need to sort the Bass out.

    In some Games the Bass is plain annoying. It's like there is a constant earthquake going on.

    I think i got it sorted now.

    I disabled the Bass in SBX and gave it back in the Equalizer instead.

    Got 2 profiles at the moment.

    http://www.mediafire.com/?9ctc6yrmprq0k2q

    Sound settings in Windows is set to 5.1 Surround.

    I'm using AKG K601 Headphones, so ofcourse it might be different for others since mine are a bit low on bass by default.

    SBX Bass is disabled and compensated in the Equalizer, because SBX Bass causes some strange issues in specific Games.

    Kinda wish it was possible to have different profiles per Game which automaticly changed depending on the EXE that's being loaded.

    what issues do you have with SBX Bass? I'm running my Audio Technica ATH AD700 so I have SBX Bass enabled at 15% just to bring back a bit of that oomph but I haven't come across any issues.

    In for example WoW there is Bass all the time, like a 747 going by at very high distance. It's really annoying.

    It's an issue with the game i'm sure.

    But ye, at 15% it's barely noticable.

    What may work for someone might not work for you, it's pretty tricky. I have a nice headset which only fault is the muddy bass, so I had to fiddle with the EQ. It took me a couple of days, but I finally got the sweetspot and now it sounds great.

    It also has to do with what you want to do. For example, if you're listening to music, then you may or may not want bass redirection. If you're gaming, then you may want BR if the game doesn't support a discrete subwoofer channel and no BR if it does.

    Then you need to consider if you're using headphones, speakers and their properties. Sharing profiles when there are so many variables may not be very helpful.

    might be wrong but i dont think the soundcard has any stake in what happens to the sound if your using the DAC in the reciver to decode....
