In the device manager, I have into details for "Creative SB Audigy":

PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0004&SUBSYS_00521102&REV_03\4&DC268A3&0&3080

It is supposed to be an Audigy LS, OEM version. Isn't it ?

Hi!

I just pass through here, to confirm that this modified drivers activates Eax4 and other features. Just use Right audio analizer and you'll see.

Greetings from chile!

hello

i have few questions...
1- if i install the modded driver without the applications.. will it allow me to have access to EAX 4.0 in games?
2- is there a way to tweak the driver and enable a better multi channel support? i heared the sound in the rear spkers is muffled a little bit compared to real XFI
3- will i be breaking the law by using xfi gamer software in the audigy SE/LS/24bit? like stealing the software? because the software is free but meant for specific hardware
4- if using the application is not allowed .. can i use audigy SE/LS/24bit old software on my card after i use the modded xfi driver? i want better hardware functionality but i don't mind old software

i will check later for any updates. thanks
peace

1-Yes it does enable eax 4 via emulation
2-not that I have heard of
3-?
4-then you might want to stick with the old software

If your looking for a good cheap gaming card I would reccomend the X-Fi XtremeMusic instead of buying an older card like the audigy series.

works perfect

it works perfect on my AudigySE , but I have one concern... the previous Audio Console used to give me +15db on subwoofer gain, which was perfect. With this new one , I get +20db ... which makes my poor subwoofer "explode". Is there any way that I can get +15db back????

It works perfectly here with Audigy SE and XP x64, thank you.

I saw Creative updated their drivers for some models, included XtremeAudio, do you plan to update your modded drivers as well?
Perhaps I'm pushing my luck :p

yup yup....still working well. the "Crystalizer" feature sort of gives me a weird compressed sound. best i can describe it. some sound shifting. so i leave it off. would have been nice, as it sort of refines the sound somewhat. but i won't miss it most likely.

otherwise its all good :pimp:

How do you install these drivers?

I don't have P17.ini from the first download (the drivers that Kain modded)
And I get following message with the other drivers:

since its known that the crystalizers and eax are running via software, would it be possible to port them to be used on another soundcard

Thank you for this driver, it works great on my audigy se except for one thing... if I unmute the microphone I don't hear any signal coming in, although the microphone works because if I try to record something it records. any ideas?


L.E.: nevermind, I seem to have solved the problem by installing these drivers over the ones from creative and it works like a charm :)

No more 5.1 sound configuration

Hi, I have a Creative Audigy SE [VEN_1102&DEV_0007&SUBSYS_100A1102] and after reading this excellent topic I choice to install the driver and now is working very well, but with 2 exceptions:

1) Now the sound from TV Tuner is just stereo (front speakers) and not multi-speakers how it was before with original driver.

2) If I open [Creative Console Launcher], then [Speakers and Headphone] with 5.1 configuration selected, then on [Advanced] it appears only front left and front right, so I can't change volume for rear, center and subwoofer!

Is there a way to solve those problems or why they exist?

Sorry for posting in this thread after it was inactive for some time.

I was only able to find the 1.04.0078 X-Fi Xtreme Audio driver modded for Audigy SE by Daniel K.

I decided to try to mod the 1.04.0079 X-Fi Xtreme Audio driver for Audigy SE.

At this point I was able only to mod the drivers for Windows XP (64 bits is working, I tested it cause I have Windows XP 64 bits, I modded also the drivers for XP 32 bits but I don't know if they work or not). Only the drivers are moded, Creative Audio Console and Creative Console Launcher are from Daniel K moded drivers. From what I saw both of them work fine with the 1.04.0079 drivers.

Here is the link to the moded drivers: http://rapidshare.com/files/151603389/Audigy_to_X-Fi_Extreme_Audio_1_04_0079_XP.rar.html

If someone can test them on Windows XP and say if there are any problems (some files were edited and they have checksum, the checksum should be good but I might be wrong) I will thanks him.

All the hard work was done by Daniel K with his releases. I tryed to understand what he did to the drivers he moded and to apply on the 1.04.0079.

Note: Vista drivers have been removed cause they are not modded. I will try to mod them to, but I can promise that I will be able to do it.

If there are any problems with the drivers I moded please fell free to post here. I will try to fix the problems.



LE: The drivers for XP 64 bits have been tested with RightMark 3DSound 2.3 (Direct Sound and OpenAL) and with Warcraft 3 (Eax enabled in Options). No problem detected with them. In my opinion the drivers for XP 64 bits are ok.

I will try to test the drivers for XP 32 bits.


LE 2: I looked on the Vista drivers from 1.04.0079. I should be able to make them work without to many problems. In fact it looks more simple then with the XP drivers.


LE 3: The HDD on witch I wanted to install XP 32bits don't want to work on this PC so it will take more then I estimated until I will be able to test the drivers I modded. In case you see any problem please tell me.

I think the drivers for Vista are ready : http://rapidshare.com/files/151723321/Audigy_to_X-Fi_Extreme_Audio_1_04_0079_XP_Vista.rar.html

I will test them but I can't tell you when I will do that. Keep in mind that the Vista drivers are not tested by me! Also the XP 32 bits drivers are not tested by me!

In the next days I will take a closer look at the application that come with with Xtreme Audio 1.04.0079. There are not a lot of changes compared with the application that come with the Daniel k 's modded drivers.

LE 4: In one of the windows the installer will tell that the package contains only XP drivers. I forgot to edit a file. :) The Vista driver can be installed without problems, the file I forgot to edit is only used to display the content of the package. Will be fixed in the next version. :)

Bad news regarding Host OpenAL 1.01.08 . I can't make it work under Windows XP. I moded the files but it don't show at all in application that can see OpenAL (best thing was to see it as Generic Hardware...). Maybe Host OpenAL 1.01.08 is working only in Vista, I can't test this at this moment...

If it works in Vista and it's not working under XP then I'll have to make 2 versions one for XP with Host OpenAL 1.00.14 and one for Vista with Host OpenAL 1.01.08. If it doesn't work in Vista then probably they find another way to block the use of this file but I don't think they did this.

I will see what I can do with the other applications... When I will do the max I to modd the drivers I will test this.

New version: http://rapidshare.com/files/151859255/Audigy_to_X-Fi_Extreme_Audio_1_04_0079_XP_Vista_3.rar.html

- Driver for Windows Vista 5.12.1.2007 / Windows XP v5.12.01.621
- APO Interface Module 2.05.00
- Audio Console 2.40.14 (like in X-FI Xtreme Audio 1.04.0079 drivers, this is not an downgrade!)
- Console Launcher 2.40.09
- Host OpenAL 1.00.14


Console Launcher will not be changed. It is not in the X-Fi Xtreme Audio 1.04.0079 and I don't know from where Daniel K took it.

As I said before Host OpenAL will be 1.00.14 until I will see if the modded 1.01.08 works under Vista. I was able to mod the files but I can't make them work under XP (btw I think Creative made the instaler run only if you try to install the drivers in Vista [maybe I want to much to make them run under XP :) ])

Hope this are well done:
Audigy to X-Fi Extreme Audio 1_04_0079 XP Vista 4_1.rar & Audigy to X-Fi Extreme Audio 1_04_0079 XP Vista 4_2.rar more info you can find in History.

In the next days I will test the drivers in Win XP X32, Vista x32 and Vista x64 with:

- Winamp ( I should here music :D , if not then it's not good at all)
- RightMark 3DSound 2.3 ( for EAX and OpenAL ; if OpenAL will not work then there is a problem)
- Warcraft 3 ( I want to see how the drivers work in a game with EAX ; hope it don't crash :p )

Keep in mind that I didn't tested the drivers for Vista and for XP x32!

In XP x64 it work nice. This is the only thing I can say at this point. :p
