Windows 7: Asus SupremeFX X-FI

I don't smoke, but thanks.

This is what I'm talking about. I had to activate this using the key from my ASUS installation disc.

I don't have anything else installed. The drivers and the X-Fi 'utility' from ASUS for the Rampage Extreme.

Wow, I have never seen that Alchamy program before. The version I have is so different. I guess I will get the Rampage version and see if it is the same. If that doesn't work, I will enable the admin account. What you posted was a Spanish version, but no worries, my wife is Mexican, she can translate haha.

Update: I got everything to install without an error. Even though the version numbers of the Maximus II Formula X-Fi MB are IDENTICAL to the Rampage Gene version, for some reason only the Rampage Gene driver worked...strange...but then again, that is Creative for ya.
Now that I can get to the creative volume panel, I come to realize that is its 100% useless in what it was designed to do. You can't even change the speaker settings!!! I am really really hating this Vista/7 sound driver setup. It completely nulls use for higher end sound cards for DJ/Production. Can't even configure the sound channels to run independently...the damn surround channels are mixed into the front channels and there is no way to change that (same in vista, not a 7 glitch)....on XP you could!!!! Hah, even went back to my dual boot XP and lookie lookie, independent sound channels.
So after all this struggle to get the creative console to work, I discover it just functions, but is unable to actually change any sound card settings....just like in Vista. FN Microsoft...why the F did they change the sound card architecture...it was FLAWLESS in XP!

Has anyone come up with a working solution to this? The SupremeFX X-Fi solution on the card (and especially the drivers from ASUS) have proven to be useless. Time for a Xonar or is there still hope..?

You are going to change sound cards because there is not a drive for W7 yet when it is not even a complete product? LOL your call dude. But the answer is no for the full creative functions, but not it at least recognizes the card. As for the driver, you are doing something wrong because it has ALWAYS worked.

Yes, actually. And, for the record, it's not a real sound card. The riser is creative's idea of software emulation, it's yet another cheap gimmick (like SpeedingHDD) from ASUS. The drivers have worked on XP but are flakey on W7.

I built this system from a pile of boxes and wires, I think I know how to install and troubleshoot a driver.

The good news is that I managed to use the REX-II drivers and it's worked without any problems, it even allowed me to activate using my old key.

Regardless, time to buy a real sound card.

Ok, well I followed what the other guys said and it works, have no issues. But as for a Xonar, they are shat, I actually am a DJ as my name suggests. Frankly, there are no real good soundcards around since the original Audigy 2. If you find one that actually works good, does not have screwed up drivers...or console like the Xonar, and actually produces accurate sound, let me know.

OK, here is the deal, now that I have set up the Alchamy and used the Gene drivers on my Formula board, sound crackles in bass and voice. Before the sound was fine, but no X-Fi. Come the F on MS/Creative.
