Currently, the Scratch Live vinyls are recommended for use with xwax. They have been found to be the best pressing with timecode signal to the edge of the vinyl, and the 1Khz rather than 2KHz for Traktor timecode performs better at high speeds, whilst giving perfectly adequate resolution. There may be further developments on this in the future though. All vinyls are supported with absolute positioning. The software has been used successfully with various interfaces, from a basic emu10k1 Soundblaster Live to professional balanced soundcards.

Sound Blaster Live! August saw the introduction of the EMU10K1 audio processor. Manufactured in a 0. This was possible at this point because systems were being equipped with far more RAM than previously, and PCI offered far faster and more efficient data transfer than the old ISA bus. The integrated FX was a bit programmable processor with 1 kilobyte of instruction memory. It provided real-time postprocessing effects such as reverb , flanging , or chorus.

This capability let users select a pre-defined listening environment from a control-panel application concert hall, theater, headphones, etc.

The Effect algorithms were created by a development system that integrated into Microsoft Developer Studio. The effects were written in a language similar to C , and compiled into native FX object code by its compiler, fxasm.

Unfortunately, digital processing brought some limitations. This rate-conversion step introduced intermodulation distortion into the downsampled output. However, the rate-conversion was only applied when the audio signal was passed through the effects engine. The software referred to this as a "4. While this is the case, the subwoofer is not on a separate output as it is with 5. Games see a "4. Later versions of the Live! The Live! Creative acquired Ensoniq in and, as part of the deal, made use of this highly-compatible ISA sound card emulator with their newer cards.

In fact, the Live! This was supported in the Windows drivers, so no additional software was needed to utilize it. The analog stereo audio signal that came out of the main Line Out was directed into this input. That way, one could mix all available inputs and the MIDI synth into one stereo signal. When using "What U Hear" with 5. The Creative Recorder utility included with the sound card was specifically designed to take advantage of the "What U Hear" feature, making it a simple matter to capture streaming sound from any source, even from programs that deliberately avoid providing a means for saving the digital sounds, thus freeing non-technical users from the complexities of " patching " between inputs and outputs of various software modules.

The rear channel was serviced by a separate, but arguably better Philips UDA DAC, yet the Op-Amp used to boost the signal to output levels had a noticeably different frequency response envelope that was not normalized to the front channel, leaving a "thin and quiet" rear channel. To make matters worse, the rear channel Op-Amp was of the inverting variety without being treated as such, leaving the rear speakers out of phase with the front, requiring switchover.

Nevertheless, simply redirecting front signal to rear output of SB Live! Despite these problems, the original SB Live! Value[ edit ] Sound Blaster Live! Value are the original releases of the Live! Value also known as Live! The original Sound Blaster Live! The Mini-DIN connection was not included in any subsequent Sound Blaster product, however owners of speaker systems that use this as the only digital input may buy an adapter from Creative.

The card is not supported by Windows Vista unless running in the 5. For details on the original Live! Original Creative Sound Blaster Live! Platinum[ edit ] Released [1] Includes Live! Platinum 5. The sale of this board by Dell created some controversy because it was not obviously marketed as an inferior or cheaper product.
