Windows 7: Sound Blaster Audigy 2 isn't nearly as loud in Win 7

16 Nov 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Glad you have it up and running icebeam.

The so called Vista drivers I downloaded with that torrent have worked perfectly for me on two different machines running the Audigy 2zs on Windows 7 Ultimate so I figured those drivers might work for icebeam.

They also work with the other Audigy series cards 1-4's on Vista and Windows 7, but they still have all the bells whistles included. Some of the Audiophiles might appreciate that sort of thing.

I fear they are the same driver but with all the useful feature's taken out.

The Creative version is 60mb compared to mine with 700mb of useful features.

I've been using those drivers successfully for so long with Windows 7 that I never felt the need to look around for others. Not to mention the fact that Creative is the last place I look for support for the very reasons just mentioned. Creative tends to strip out feature's on older drivers and sometime's those features can come in handy.

What's interesting is that the Creative version of this driver does not work properly on either of my Audigy 2zs systems. Only the Daniel K version I linked too seem to work properly and had all the sound control feature's left in.

I'll post the link to the torrent version with all the bells and whistles since it works perfectly for me.

Click where it says torrent if you want a working Windows 7 Creative Audigy driver for Audigy 1-4 with all the bells and whistles.

Also I have found that someone is hosting the SB Audigy Series Support Pack 3.6 (11/09/2009) Creative driver file on a much faster server, working in Windows 7 but without the bells and whistles.> SimpleCDN Mirror

So no need to wait around for Rapid Share's slowness. :)
