View Full Version : New soundcard

19-08-2002, 05:19 PM
I have just bought Dragon speech recognition software and find my basic soundcard is causing problems. I get a message saying the program canít control the volume and I find I canít adjust the recording volume either.
I want to upgrade it to one of these:
Creative SB PCI 128 $45,Genius PCI Soundmaker 32 $30, Genius 128 PCI Soundmaker Live 4x $50, Genius 128 PCI Soundmaker Live 5.1 $60.

Does anyone have an opinion on these and would they know of any better ones in this price range.

Personnally, I like Soundblasters, Well know Creative Brand. I dunno about the other, but I don know that SB has been easy to use, and usually puts out pretty darn good quality sounds!!!

Have a read of some of the reviews at RadiativeNZ (http://www.radiativenz.com) they recently did two articles comparing the cheaper sound cards.
