Windows 7: SB Audigy 2 popping and other issues

Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit
SB Audigy 2 popping and other issues

Well after giving the drivers a month I have about had it with the popping and other sound quality issues from my otherwise great working SB Audigy 2. Yes I have tried Daniel K's drivers. Well I decided to give my Motherboard's built-in HD audio another try. So far so good. I was none too impressed under XP Pro with it but so far so good.

After tweaking for Quadraphonic sound music sounds great with it. Even when turned up to 11.

Also I left the Audigy 2 installed on my motherboard. Oddly Windows 7 can handle multiple sound card sources.

HD audio on Intel's "not supported in Windows 7" 975XBX2 seems like a valid option.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

The older Vista Audigy Daniel K drivers work the best. I have them working perfectly on two different systems with Audigy2 and Audigy2 ZS. They come with all the extras also.

The Daniel K driver from the Creative site weren't any good for me either.

You need to torrent for those unfortunately but they are easy to find.

I read a few threads here a bit earlier when I found that I couldn't record What U Hear on my system. Though the other threads were about X-FI cards, the idea of using a different driver sounded right, so I have tried several times with different drivers, but they don't take. In the Device...
