Windows 7: Daniel Kawakami Creative Drivers.

22 Jul 2009   #1

Windows 8.1 Enterprise
Daniel Kawakami Creative Drivers.

hey, i'm about to purchase the creative X-Fi xtreme audio, PCI-E or regular version.
i have read that creative (what sh*theads) has disabled many features on that card
and later on released a driver that enabled the features and demanded $$$$ for it. (can you go any lower than that you douche-bags?)

so, I've also read about Daniel Kawakami own Modified creative drivers for vista
that enables all of the disabled features and especially the one i'm buying the card for: DD LIVE. which is enabled by default in the more expensive cards like the X-Fi platinum.

to sum it all up, few question here:

1. Where can i find Daniel's drivers? (i know he had a clash with creative and removed the drivers but certainly someone has it or uploaded it).
2. does the modified vista drivers work on Windows 7 X64?
3. does anyone here have the mentioned card or other X-Fi cards with Daniel's drivers installed on his WIN 7 and can confirm that DD Live is working?

Thanks for answering and take care.

1. Same place as always,

2. Yes they do

3. You want DDL with that card you have to pay for it, , as it never came with it in the first place.

As for that particular card having features disabled, it never had them in the first place. The Xtreme Audio is nothing more than a renamed SB Live 24 bit or Audigy SE, which are all software based cards. If you haven't seen it read this,

Sound Blaster X-Fi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You want a X-Fi get anything but an Xtreme Audio (look at the Auzentech Prelude or Forte as well).
