Spark Users Community / Re: Creative SoundBlaster ASIO vs ASIO4ALL v2
« Last post by Kosmology on April 15, 2014, 07:23:44 pm »
You are welcome :)

on a side note, I do have a lot of love/nostalgia for the AWE 32 and so I just need someone to listen to get me started, so be warned :) Before VST was developed (hard to imagine now) it was an essential piece of equipment for my music.


I will definitely check into that and see if there is any development still going on.

Thank you so much for your assistance and for spending so much time trying to fix my problems here in this forum. If it's worth anything, I do appreciate it a lot. People like you make these forums worth spending time in and visiting them. By helping me as only one individual, you're also very likely helping others who are experiencing same issues too. That's what counts and I thank you for that. You're also making these forums look alive for a change :)

To be honest I don't think it will make any difference what bit-rate, but give it a try. I think it's probably at the hardware level that when the asio is in use it dedicates the cards resources to that. It's been a long time since I've used sound Blaster cards, I use to use the AWE 32 and later soundblaster Lives in gigging boxes as samplers, and as I remember it I think they behaved the same way.

Have you looked at the KX Project? I have no idea if it's still active/maintained but it used to be a project which turned Soundblasters into more professional audio cards, ie less multimedia more DAW friendly. It began back in the day by turning a SB Live into an EMU APS which was essentially the same hardware with gold plated connections. Might be worth a look for the sake of installing/uninstalling, but I would find a forum where people are discussing it to see how well it is maintained etc.. It could be dead. I used them for a few years but it was a long time ago.

Many cards used to behave like that in past, cards I've had that did it include the EWS 64XL and the Yamaha DSP Factory.

Here's the site:

Wow, I just realized Creative Sound Blaster forums are full of angry customers crying and begging for driver updates. Apparently there was one update in January 2014 (and I am running those drivers) that are suppose to fix a lot of things... but it looks like while fixing those things for Windows 8.1, they screwed up a lot of other ones that actually worked in Windows 8. What's better option at the moment? I've tried some ASUS sound cards (Xonor) and I wasn't very happy with their performance, not even to mention ugly and randomly functional software. One word - Horror.\

There is one post in another forum, made by a guy with name Anarion:

...Creative ASIO driver is multi-client. I can for example play stuff though Foobar and FL studio at the same time using ASIO (and Windows mixer would not notice any activity). My X-Fi Forte worked exactly like this too. Handy while gaming because the music volume stays constant (unlike if you use DS and game has loud explosions for example). Stereo direct is only option that doesn't obey volume control (but you can't playback normal CD quality stuff though it without upsampling).

Earlier W8.1 upgrade broke ASIO multi client support on my system but now since fresh install it works again. EDIT: It looks like it's just dodgy in W8.1, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Same goes to earlier paragraph...

I will try it as soon as I am home from work. Until then, does it make any difference if my default format is 24-bit, 48000 Hz ? Should I switch it back to 16-bit. Here is a screenshot with this speaker settings panel and available options (I've done sloppy job since I had to connect to my home machine from work remotely). Also, I've copy/pasted same window but with other options visible, and placed it right next to the original one on the left hand side (second one is obviously pasted in PS). I've been told to disable these two options (see red arrows) in order to get better results and performance, so I disabled them.

P.S If my English doesn't make sense at some point, please do stop and correct me, I have no problems with that. I love learning from all those who are willing to help.

An additional oscillator is where it starts, where it ends, nobody knows...
I tried to go modular with just one extra oscillator, now my synth is just another "voice" for my modular.
To be clear, though, you WILL need a power supply/case for ANY module, regardless of how many.  A larger case than you think you need is also highly recommended.

2. AFAIK, FL only does relative for supported controllers, and the Beatstep isn't in that list.

What do you mean? Any controller can send any information to FL, relative or absolute, I checked the midi editor thingy and yep, relative or absolute, so thats all good. I can also use it - with the aid of BCFview - to emulate a mackie control unit, so yeah. Image-Line don't have to say they support a controller for it to work with FL. For example the X-Touch by behringer, no specific support, the LCD strips don't work, but everything else does.

(Why does everyone on the internet seem to be anti-FL?)
