    I'm starting a kX 3553 "todo" list or "wish list".

    - Fix installer for Windows.

    - New Audigy 5/Rx compatibility.

    - Bug: In the AC97 tab in kX Mixer, the AC97 analog gain is correctly saved in .kx files, but not correctly loaded when loading a .kx file. The AC97 gains remains at 0 after loading a .kx file no matter what the value is in the file for that slider. Bug should be fixed in next version.

    - Feature : Different Inputs in Windows mixer for mic in, line in, "stereo mixer" and so on. This would allow, for example, the "push to talk" feature of Nullsoft's Shoutcast Source DSP to actually work.


    Do I forget something ?

    I wouldn't change kx to cater for a poorly written program. Besides, I doubt your proposal would help with shoutcast DSP as it does not work (reliably) in windows vista and later regardless of the soundcard

    +1 on that. I volunteer for testing...
    How about better 64bit ProFX compatability?

    That's just one example. It's a sad thing one can't independantly control different recording sources from another application, even when the application is written to use Windows audio API to modify the right things in the Windows mixer.
    Besides, having different inputs in Windows for different recording sources is the standard way of doing things, and the way it's done in every single audio driver I've ever encountered but kX.

    Maybe I've missed something, but I can't think of a disadvantage of allowing for more recording devices in Windows mixer.

    Oh, and SoundFonts for Windows x64.

    Also found something, I don't know if it's a hardware limitation or a driver bug:

    Wave Out HQ outputs silence when a 22Khz PCM (.wav) file is played using this output. That's true whether WaveOut HQ is directly connected to I2S Outputs or going through the DSP.

    I believe it's a driver bug and that it didn't happen in the 3552 alpha drivers.

    This is confusing ... 3552 is the latest version, why report an issue that doesn't exist in the latest version?

    I'm sure with the wealth of information you've supplied about your set up, the developers will get right on to your problem first

    Use SPDIF output instead of WAVE 4/5 if you have only stereo speakers.

    You say you have a SB 0350
    Your screenshot says you have a SB 0243

    Sure, they're both Audigy 2 cards, but, I'm sure there are differences

    So, who, according to you, will write this elusive 3553 version?
    You?

    It would be nice if someone picked up the torch and ran with it though. Before anyone accuses me... see my thread for info on the Audigy 5/RX. I'd like better support for it. It's a new card, works with kX and should have an updated version that supports it.

    I'm talking of an issue that didn't exist with 3552 ALPHA version, which is not the latest one (the alpha version was different, and had many other bugs).

    Except for adding "Hello World" everywhere, I don't think I'm really able to undertake this kind of work.

    But now that kX is open-source, we can hope for one or several devs to hop in and start taking kX to the next level. Hoping never hurts, does it?

    3553
    Rebuild installer so that it actually installs (obvious)
    Correct broken plugin(s?) (Basic > "gain" values are +0.00dB or -174.60dB, slider graphic is stationary, in my case)
    Are Soundfonts working yet? I haven't tried..
    I feel I knew of a bug or two I'm not remembering. Will hopefully get back.
