As simple as this may sound, if your Audigy sound card
occasionally Squeals (on Win2000), check to make sure your Drive Bay Audio
Drive has power to the device. Otherwise, this squeal can be very annoying
and occur randomly under Cubasis which ships with the Audigy! Normal audio
/ midi playback does not seem to affect the Audigy without power to the
front panel Audio Drive. Just check it to make sure (3/29/2002)!
Some Users are experiencing major problems with the
Creative Audigy on WinXP flavors. We have tested the Audigy on Win2000 +
SP2 ONLY and have successfully used this combination. We suspect the
problem may be the WDM drivers on WinXP since this
Squealing / Lockup problem does not appear on WinMe.
By no means do we advocate the use of WinMe.
This only further demonstrates a driver related problem. Of all our
recommendations in the past 10 years, WinMe was our only mistake. Since
none of the Creative sound cards can be addressed directly by ProAudio
Disk based Streaming Sampler, GigaStudio ver
2.5 under the WDM driver model - Any
Creative Sound Card is less than a desirable choice for ProAudio
Solutions. GigaStudio requires GSIF
