I've been normally using a Yeti as my mic and not using the X-Fi HD mic output. But recently I've been tying a pair of PC37X's while waiting on the PC38x to arrive, and I've been plugging the headset cord into the mic out on the X-Fi HD, apparently according to my team mates on Discord, my voice gets all staticy from time to time or I lose voice altogether sometimes.

Question: Is this normal for this card?, I seem to remember others say much the same in the past..or is it just a Discord/Windows/X-Fi thing?

Cheers
Easiest fix was to enable onboard sound and use the mic output instead, works like a charm.

I have a question: Is CMSS Headphone tunable like SBX or is it a fixed thing?

At least on the X-fi PCI-cards it was somewhat tuneable (effect strength), but not as tunable as some others like Super X-fi or Waves NX.
Hmm, I can't see it in the Game Mode console section, only entertainment...I guess game is set to ALL speakers equally?
