Creative audigy 4 crackling recorded sound HELP :((

Hi,
I have problem with my creative audigy4 sound card,
i use FL studio 9 and pianissimo piano software, or any other it does not mether,
and midi evolution keyboard, and when i try to record my self, playing live, with microphone on and these plugins, the recorded sound is cracling, like interaptable, im using sony soundforge10 for live recordings.
this worked on xp, now i use Windows 7 64bit ultimate,
intel core2quad q9550, 4gb ddr3 ram on 1600ghz,.....i think its not an comp. issue.
Did anyone had the same or similar problem????

First thing, do you have the Win 7 drivers for this old SB sound card? If you only have Windows installed drivers, go to the Creative site and download the actual Creative drivers HERE

After you get the Creative drivers (if you don't have them), try recording the mic to the Windows sound recorder and see if you get the crackling there. If not, that would say the sound card is OK and the problem is probably in the setup for FL Studio. I use Sonar X1 so I can't say what FL studio actually needs.

Something easy to test...
Open the START menu and in the SEARCH FILES AND PROGRAMS box type "appearance" (no quotes). <enter>

UNcheck the "enable desktop composition" box and click on OK. Then try your programs. If no change, no harm...

You can revert to the default by clicking the "let Windows decide" button - same configuration page - or simply check the box that you UNchecked and click on OK.

Yes, UNchecking the box disables some fancy graphics, but the system will work just fine without them.

If nothing else does the job, you might try installing the DanielK package, that you will find here:

daniel_k Audigy Series Support Pack 3.8 No More Goat Soup

He says that it doesn't improve sound quality, but it could if the old installation is not right.

fireberd: Seems like there is a new driver, im downloading it right now, and see what will result be ))

that doesnt help I will try this alternative solution, from daniel_k

i havent got problem with sound when im playing it and using mic, it sounds ok, normal, but when i play it back, its like i describe it abowe, i dont get it. Recorded song is wrong.

And one question for fireberd:
Can I use sonar x1 for live recording, will it record my midi input, playing and voice at same time????
Or do I have to record it separetly, like first piano, then voice...or can it do together?

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but it sounds as though the problem only appears when you are recording. If that is true, I would tend to suspect either the mike that you are using, or a bad connection on it.

The problem appears when i playing recorded, the recorded sound is the issue. Everithing sounds great when im recording, but when im finished, and play what i recorded.....there is a problem, recording is bad.

I understand, but you mentioned that it happened when recording with a mike...what if you are just recording midi alone, does it still sound bad? In either case, it still sounds like the issue is with input, rather than the sound card or driver. Does it also sound bad if you play an audio that you did not record yourself?
