SBLive! A hog under XP?

Discussion in 'Soundblaster Live' started by Albert Finchly, Feb 29, 2004.

  1. Howdy. I don't know about other versions of Windows,
    but under XP the SBLive! (latest drivers) seem to be
    hogging "something". If I play CS (or any other FPS game)
    with the Soundblaster (as opposed to the onboard sound)
    enabled, then I get severe FPS drops. If I disable the SBLive!
    and enable onboard sound then I suffer no such drops. My
    basic spec. is XP 2400+, 512Mb RAM, Ti4200, VIA KT133
    chipset. I've tried a couple of potential patches curtesy of
    Georgy Breese (http://www.georgebreese.com/net/software/)
    but none make any difference.

    Has anyone else suffered this indignity? Perhaps even discovered
    a solution? Is the Audigy just as bad, in this respect, as the Live!
    card?
