    Re : New Pax Driver and Suite Discus Thread

    I have a question, why Console Launcher of PAX PCI XFI PAX Audio Suite DVD 2011 V3.00 (Released August 22) is V2.61.49 Beta

    and Console Launcher of PAX MASTER Suite V2.05 (Release July 17) is V2.61.53

    PAX PCI XFI PAX Audio Suite DVD 2011 V3.00 is more uptodate but version of Console Launcher is older than PAX MASTER Suite V2.05 CL version.

    AW: New Pax Driver and Suite Discus Thread

    I got the following problem.
    I have the Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium (PCIe) and a 5.1 soundsystem with Windows 7 64-bit, the PAX Master Suite 2.05 and the newest PAX PCIe Titanium Driver V3.60 installed. But whatever I try I just get sound on front left and right speakers. Center and Rear speakers are silencing. Just through EAX effects I get a silent echo on the these speakers. What I'm doing wrong?
    Thanks in advance!

    set your speaker configuration as 5.1 in Windows control panel.
    Enable CMSS in creative control panel if you want soundcard to convert stereo sources to 5.1.
    you can test all speakers in windows control panel and in creative to test if they are working at all (or correctly connected)

    Thanks for the advice @Legas. But still not working.
    I was already sure that I've met these settings and rechecked it.
    Windows Sound Configuration is set to 5.1, CMSS is activated with 60 % on Stereo-Surround and in the test I get the right sound from every speaker. But still e.g. music is just played on front left and right speaker.

    what player are you using for plying music? what audio renderer is used?
    did you try to playback 5.1 audio stream?
    did you check speaker configuration in player if it has it?

    I'm using iTunes to play music. It seems not to have such options. I don't exactly know my audio renderer, but I know I have the K-Lite Codec Pack with newest version installed. I now played a 5.1 audio stream (wma format) and it strangely worked on all speakers. Seems to depent on the audio format but on windows xp x86 I got 5.1 sound with my music and this sound card. Is there any hope to still get the sound back without converting all audio files? :/

    1) do you see ffdshow icons in tray while playing music (stereo)? You might need to expand notification area in case if icons are hidden there
    2) don't use itunes anymore :)

    1) I see no ffdshow tray icons in my taskbar also looked up the settings for hidden tray icons and ffdshow isn't even listed. And tray icon option is checked in ffdshow configuration but still no tray icon and tried OSD - also doesn't show up.
    2) Problem is I have an iPod, which makes me little dependent on iTunes and I like its style and interface structure. Is there an alternative/which player do you prefer? :/

    that means that iTunes doesn't use ffdshow filters during music playback (I suggest it uses only internal decoders instead). So if there is no option to configure speakers setup or output renderer, then I have no idea how to force itunes to allow X-FI use CMSS.
    However, you can try to add itunes into creative alchemy, or copy needed files from ALchemy folder manually. This might help to redirect sound to sound card.
    the only dependence is to manage/upload music. you can still listen in any other player ;) I don't have iPod, but there are some programs that allow to manage ipod without itunes.
    Some music players support ipod (and other hardare players) either naturally or by installing some plugins to listen to music located at ipod.
    If you love iTunes interface, then just continue using it ;)
    If you prefer quality, then try foobar. It might be very hard for newbie to configure it, so I recommend you to search for something like "foobar packs"...and configure output in settings to use ASIO (don't use WASAPI and Kernel Stream if you need CMSS, because they bypass everything, i.e. including windows re-sampler and X-FI settings)

    [edit]
    try this skin + foobar2000: http://nrossow.deviantart.com/art/iTunes-for-foobar2000-114611164

    Re: New Pax Driver and Suite Discus Thread

    Hey Robert just thought you would like to know that the Auzentech Forte drivers you just released haven't been able to work properly. They install just fine but when I go to use any of Creative's software, it says the device isn't supported. Reason might be because somehow my soundcard was given generic "High Definition" audio drivers. Any ideas on a fix? :confused: Thanks!

    EDIT: I think I found a workaround, but I'm not sure if I'm running on your drivers, haven't heard a difference yet. What I did was start clean, install v1.3 official drivers and software suite, then ran the setup for your v2.00 PAX drivers and told it to repair the installation, hopefully overwriting the official driver and software with yours, but retaining the functionality of the soundcard. How can I tell if I'm using your drivers or not?
