You now have basic sound support in bit Vista. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. Jan 11, Messages: On my old driver CD, there should be some A3D demos Several details, like 4-speaker support, don’t work with that driver. Fine just be ready engineers like me stop to understand you. Tue Feb 13, 4:

Yes, that Waveblaster connector is the same reason to my 2 anyone need real WT MIDI must have that connector on card to put on such wavetable daughter board like Waveblaster. The result is here: Wing Commander 2 speech – SoundBlaster: Half life is the game to demonstrate it, under windows Specifically, the Aurreal paged pool on my system seems to be growing slowly over the course of several days from about MB up to 1.

From what I recall you’d also get these cool variations on sound depending on the environment, aureak if there were different objects or different things in the room the sound would get distorted differently. Vortex Advantage reference drivers Check the Frequently Asked Questions if you don’t know which chipset your sound card uses. Wed Feb 07, Sure it is, if you believe so I won’t argue – I have my reasons to be sure there’s not – but it does not matter just because you will find the answer “Is or Isn’t”?


I installed this driver in Vista SP1 32 bit. So, I found the last know drivers for XP — the 5. Vista now has Sound!

After I installed the drivers, I restarted my computer, but alas, still no sound. It’s only nice to keep those docs as a quick reference card of what-particular-hardware-is-capable-of, that’s it.

It’s interesting to remember the history of sound on the Aursal. Wed Feb 07, 4: I was hoping I wasn’t the only one out there still using this chipset.

I can hardly believe they’d rip out the built in drivers for such a popular audio chip.

Just in case – since I mentioned Alsa a lot I guess I should be more specific: With HL and A3D, you would hear the sound very noticeably muffled. Thanks for your work!

Is there any difference between the AU based cards? I include screenshot as a proof below and drivers. How exactly were you able to make all this work?

The reference drivers should not be used with these sound card as you will lose support for the addon boards: They might have been on driverguide. Unfortunately, the way that that Aureal implemented the hardware, the sound card looks like a “multifunction device” instead of a straight-up sound device. That’s why some newer games can’t get A3D support.


Not trolling for flamebait here, I’m genuinely interested to hear what people think of EAX3 in gaming. Well, I knew that Vista supported using XP sound drivers. I loved that card, it sounded way better than the SB.

As for Creative being the anti-christ, it used to vex me, but enough time has elapsed that I don’t really give a toss any more. After they were forced into bankruptcy from fighting off Creative’s bogus IP lawsuits.

Apr 22, Posts: Sadly, Aureal went bankrupt in aureall was later bought by Creative, so Aureal chipsets have had pretty poor support since XP — the stock Vortex2 driver included in Windows XP was a bare bones implementation at best.
