Hello,

I am using window7 + creative sb x-fi hd usb + some sennheiser headphones and lately found that after install driver 1.2.21 over original 1.2.20 my sound got worsen (I usually playing flac files with foobar + sox resampler plugin + asio). After reinstall driver sound got back better quality.
I just wondering, i always do resample sound to highest profile what my card can play (24bit/96kHz) for bypass windows/driver resampling, and using even asio for bypass that but looks like that driver have own resampler and filters and even if i try best - driver can corrupt sound.
Know anyone a way to bypass driver and play original sound as much as possible?

Mike

Donít misinterpret the above post to refer to quality. These modes are designed not for any effect upon the output audio but rather to achieve unrelated goals such as exclusive access to hardware, reduced latency, etc.

Which nevertheless (and correct me if I'm wrong), under certain conditions (e. g. many concurrent sound clients, heavy average system load etc...), might have perceivable effects on output sound quality.
