Re: New Soundplaster USB sound card

goshawk on horseback
 

I wouldn't swear to it, but as HDMI is mainly a video type connection, I personally doubt that you will find an audio only box or card featuring it.

certainly for good playing and recording quality, I would go for either the aphex in2, or the steinberg ur22. these also have actual hardware controls, which do make setting up levels for recording a heck of a lot easier, rather than having to find and change that in software.
hope this helps.

Hi all.

I've owned 2 Creative Labs, external sound cards in the past. I've used both Optic and mini jack connections.

Now I wish to purchase a new external sound card, but I don't think my new Yamaha amp has Optic in fact I know it was very expensive but I don't know anything regarding it's available connectivity. I do know it takes HDMI, So that's my first question. Do any of the cards sold by Creative use HDMI? that would be the simplist option I suppose.

I'm wanting a good card for audio recording and playback. I Cannot play games and I don't require very high teck models, with all the complicated fancy stuff.

I don't necessarily want a cheep box because of it's simplicity but I want to record and play good quality.

I'm thinking of using Goldwave or Total recorder to record everything from the card and indeed Total recorder is the easiest to use as I've not had very good luck with Goldwav in the past because of all the sound options you need to change in playback and record functions Total recorder, I think works right out of the box without a lot of messing around, but now I think of it I normally use Winamp for playback.

Now, as you ccan see, I'm already confused. Better that one of my friends on the list say something like, Andy get the creative ??? that will do want you want and is only around £150. Hahaha.

Any information very welcome.

Very best wishes.

Andy Logue.

Hi all.

I love my BSM 9 Binaural microphones but now I'd like to use them on my H6 and F8n to fully realise the potential and quality of these amazing mic's.

But I need to buy a converter from Mini plug to XLR.

I cannot search for "converter from Mini plug to XLR " in Google so I need either the converters name or model number to search for a sourse of purchase, perhaps on Amazon.

Any advice would be very welcome.

Very best wishes.

Hello everyone.

I'm running Windows 10 20H2. I have onboard audio on this desktop,
listed as Realtek high Definition Audio, so I assume that's what it is
- the corresponding drivers are also installed - they're the latest
ones I could find from both cnet and realtek.com, dated back to 2018 I
believe.

Now, I keep reading about these sound enhancements available in
windows 10, ranging from "room correction", to "bass boost", "virtaul
surround" and even an equalizer. I'm especially interested in getting
a fairly low level (as in at the operating system/soundcard level)
equalizer to work, as I'm not convinced that the one in winamp is that
great, and the VLC one is a pain in the butt to use, and besides, I
listen to a lot of stuff on youtube nowadays.

But, under "sound, realtek and speakers: realtek" properties, sound
enhancements, I only have one option listed - "loudness equalization".
Sound effects are enabled. So I'm wondering - where are all those
other options I keep hearing about? Why don't I have them? Are they
just not available to realtek users? I've done some google searches
and came up with a lot of people complaining about their sound
enhancements tab missing altogether, but that's not what's happening -
I have the tab, there's just only that single "loudness equalization"
box to check and that's it. To me that's a useless feature. I want the
other ones. :P

Can anyone offer any suggestions? Or am I just out of luck?

CEntrance are a high end audio brand.

Their tuff is not cheap, but is good quality for the price.

I have owned a Mic preamp by them and was extremely impressed.

I can’t speak to the accessibility of Mixer Face, especially the recorder, but the clean creams and circuitry of their products is well acclaimed.

Of course, many audio interfaces and mixers don’t employ menus. The real strength of this product is its quality, portability and size.

From memory, it also contains a hardware limiter, which is much better than limiters implemented in software.

I’m sure its 192/24 in resolution.
