I have 2 systems and the other is listed in my profile so here are this system's specs.
Intel e7200 cpu
Gigabyte EP43-UD3L Motherboard
4 gigs of ram
OCZ 120 gigabiyte SSD for OS
Seagate 1TB 7200rpm storage drive
Nvidia 9800 GT
Sound Blaster Audigy 2
Windows 7 64 bit
I just upgraded this system with a new SSD and a clean install from Windows XP 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit. I do a lot of audio recording with this system. I use Sony Sound Forge 9 and Sony Vegas 10 for recording editing and CD production. I have always kept my computer recording settings at "What you hear" so that I can record multiple sounds from the line in with a turntable and the computer simultaneously. This has always worked flawlessly with XP.
After installing windows 7 and the latest drivers
from Creative I set things up with "What You Hear" and at first things seemed all right. But then I went to record something in Sound Forge and I could not get the volume above -12 db. I also noticed that if I was playing a song in iTunes and stopped it there was a reverb or echo that faded after I hit stop.
I tried reinstalling the drivers. No help. Then I turned off "what you hear" and the echo was no longer there but the volume was still low.
Is this a Creative driver
problem? Or is this possibly some other conflict that I can't seem to find? I am looking for other new cards that may be more compatable with windows 7 like the Asus Xonar DSX which is in my price range but I don't want to buy it only to find out that I slill have the same problem.
If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.
