I meant just bypassing the Windows audio stack and its imperfections while still being able to have a VoIP conversation with friends and whatnot.This approach still wouldn't let me listen to a music player without CMSS-3D Headphone affecting it while playing a game, and in the OpenAL plugin case, I can't even run a game that uses hardware acceleration without sound conflicts between the two programs.That sort of thing would probably require two separate audio devices, one...
Hmmm, I should test how well the Titanium HD handles that.I personally use ASIO in Audio Creation Mode with bit-matched playback, or more likely, a particular OpenAL plugin for Winamp so I can bypass the Windows audio stack without switching out of Game Mode. X-Fi mode switching is a crapshoot sometimes, so I prefer to avoid it.Then again, I just don't like how WASAPI exclusive mode mutes everything else. The other two APIs don't do that.
 XtremeAudio? IT'S A TRAP! Avoid that card like the plague, it's no real X-Fi. You want one of those cards, find an X-Fi Titanium; they're not too expensive at around $30-50 here in the US, depending on used sale listings.   I don't notice much in the way of EMI screwing up the sound, but I'd think an external DAC with an S/PDIF signal from the sound card (for DSP effects) would circumvent that nicely if it was a problem.
The game's still in development, but I feel safe saying that these already warrant being posted in here:       https://soundcloud.com/myroneofficial/drift-stage-main-theme   '80s to the max...and I love it.
 Duly noted. Dragon's Crown aside, I'm kinda feeling in a Battlefield mood right now, but I really don't want to go pub-diving like I used to without any friends on voice chat backing me up. I'm thinking of giving BF3 PC multiplayer a chance for once, but it sounds like everyone's already moved to BF4. Also, there's PAYDAY 2 if anyone's got that.  It's about time a console had a feature like this! Too bad it probably won't apply to the PS3 as well, since I don't intend on...
 Also got it thanks to PS+, and I'm wondering if you'd be up for some co-op in the near future, since the game supports it and all! Admitted, I haven't touched it much and would have a beginner character more or less, but that's mainly because I tend to abstain from playing games with co-op if I don't have friends around to join in. Just doesn't feel right to me, you know?
 I can get some surprisingly good positioning out of my Beyerdynamic MMX 300, basically a DT770 Premium 32-ohm with a nice mic built-in and an insane price premium compared to buying a DT770 and separate mic, unless you get a good used deal on it. Assuming that most of the DT770 variants sound similar, I'd say they'd be capable of doing the job, but there's a whole lot of talk about bass-light and bass-heavy versions, not to mention all the different impedances and Pro vs....
 It works. I've confirmed it myself. Just make sure "Play Stereo Mix using Digital Output" is checked and your "Speakers"/analog output is set as the default audio device in Windows. The former's PCI-Express, the latter's old-fashioned PCI. Naturally, I think you'll want the PCI-Express Titanium model, seeing as legacy PCI slots are getting phased out on modern motherboards.
 Funny you say that, because I thought Battlefield trying to somewhat copy CoD in scope as of the last several games was making Battlefield worse. They're two different styles of gameplay; each should stay where they belong instead of trying to make a bid for the other game's playerbase to the extent that they forget their original roots. Then again, maybe the competition is a good thing, considering the great Quake III Arena vs. Unreal Tournament rivalry of the last...
It works just like Dolby Headphone and THX/SBX do in software-mixed games, just with its own sound colorations.I'll probably throw it in whenever I decide how to rearchitect and rewrite the guide to minimize repeat questions like that. It was initially written as more of an information and misconception list than a how-to guide.That said, I've tried THX TSP Surround on my X-Fi Titanium HD (Entertainment Mode) and the Recon3D USB. I was not impressed. SBX doesn't sound any...
