Windows 7: Asus SupremeFX X-FI

Seeing as no one has actually come out and said it in this thread, Creative in no way has anything to do with the drivers for the Asus Supreme/Rampage/whatever X-Fi as it is not a X-Fi at all but a SoundMax/ADI based sound card/chip, that only gets to use some of the X-Fi software.

You want working/compatible drivers you need to get on Asus' case to get them, and get on them to go after Creative for an updated version of the X-Fi MB.

One thing you can try is this,

Daniel_K: SB X-Fi MB for Windows 7, Vista and XP and proper Realtek HD Audio driver

and use the license key that came with your motherboard and see if it will activate.

I've found a working solution, might be similar to the one above. The key that comes with the ASUS board (Rampage Extreme rev2, in my case) worked fine. AND, it works flawlessly. Finally, working panels and full surround support, no tweaking or mind-numbing hacks to get it to work. 2-step, easy instructions are included.

Contains:
- SB X-Fi Volume Panel
- SB X-Fi CMSS 3D
- SB X-Fi Crystalizer
- Smart Volume Management
- Graphic EQ
- Full Funtion Mixer

and of course, full EAX for your games/movies.

Full pack is here.

Oh by the way...

Ok so everyone can get to that dude, show us a small video of you changing the speaker settings. So far you only show the panel which works with the Rampage II download, but we need a screen shot showing W7 with version number, and WITH the pull down of speaker selection before we believe you.

it might have the software, but that is all that it has. The drivers still have to come from ADI/SoundMax through Asus, and if ADI doesn't provide an update neither does Asus.

What I have found is the ADI (2000 to be technical) chipset driver works fine. There is nothing wrong and it installs and works without a hitch. It's the proprietary X-Fi addon that will not work right. It is a combination between Creative getting it together, then ASUS can release a fix. So really, yes ASUS has to get on Creatives case to provide them with the solution so they can taylor it to the ROG cards.

Have any of you with this onboard sound tried using this yet?

Daniel_K: SB X-Fi MB for Windows 7, Vista and XP and proper Realtek HD Audio driver

Just use the license that came with your original X-Fi MB.

Thay may be an issue with the media you are using. Have you tried a movie with a proper AC3 5.1 soundtrack...with AC3 Filter set up in the output format to "AS IS (no change)" and see if there is sub output. As you say, it does work in the sound panel. The reason why you don't get sub output on this soundcard with mp3 and stream is because they are only 2.0. Analog output just mixes the stereo channels into the sub, whereas 5.1 NEEDS to have a full seperate sound channel specifically with the 0.1 channel. If you try this with AC3 Filter, and there is sub, then that is why....which in that case your sound is actully reproducing the mp3 properly. Some amps will pre mix this, and some sound cards do such as the Razer AC1. Hopefully that helped.
