As we have already mentioned, Creative had an opportunity to test X-Fi with a special version of UT supporting voices. It uses patents on MacroFX, binaural 3D panning. Close all other Windows applications. Mastering studios use very expensive equipment that analyzes the original file: The effect-processor operating at 48 kHz must be disabled in this case. In case of high quality acoustics studio monitors and Hi-Fi speakers of the mid class , I had no problems picking several MP3 files as well as original CDs, which quality was degraded by Crystalizer.

The latest Version 5. Effects can then be applied to these separate bands and then the bands rejoined. The bundle includes an internal rack for 5″ bay and an IR remote control. To delegate a similar function to real time automation and then speak of the advantage over the studio results is arrogant at best.

But if you love maximum audio quality, you need this feature the least of all.

Otherwise, resampling will intervene again. But it’s quite clear that this processor is currently obsolete. Discussion threads sb5050 be closed at any time at our discretion.

Great features and good sound, but fills a narrow niche Great features and good sound, but fills a narrow niche by Ty Pendlebury.


There are interpolators of a higher quality than in case of a typical poly-phase FIR finite impulse response implementation with x-if Follow the instructions on screen. On August 2, Creative conducted a conference in Germany, where it presented sound cards of the new generation to the European press – SoundBlaster X-Fi.

It can be used to build a flexible mixer in terms of signal routing as well as for games, as it requires parameter mixing for each effect. All Application Driver Beta Application.
