[access-uk] Re: Soundcard A Soundcaard B, how to choose

Tink, funny yu should say this. \i was told on another audio mailing list, not to bother with anything creative if i was wanting to record anything seriously.

DJ,

Can't swear it was the card, but many of my old files now have some
hiss in the background when I play them through the higher quality card.
Could be as much to do with the fact I knew less about sound recording then,
but stuff I record now doesn't have any hiss.

Tink.

Hi Tink and Sunnil thanks for the Jaws stuff.

I've now Elaquince set up to use either the sb live or default so i can
toggle back and forth betweent he two without needing to make any additional
entrys or edits to the .ini.

Which will certainly help me in the short term to get some of these tapes
recorded.

A mates going to have a look at my turtle beach to make sure it's not goign
to fly under Pro then I'll look at the audigys.

Thanks Tink for the heads up on the audigy.

Why does your stuff nto sound so good anymore?

I ripped allot of materiel to 192 44hz 100 Stereo with my SB Live and Fraun
Haufer Pro (MP3 Encoder) and it sounds fantastic ont he Turtle Beach I'm
just curious as what you recorded that doesnt' sound as good on a higher end
card.

Barry,

Point 1. Yes, you can make an addition to your jfw.ini file like
this:

1. Open jfw.ini in Notepad.
2. Search for "Synth".
3. You'll see something like this:

Synth1Name=eloq
Synth1LongName=Eloquence for JAWS
Synth1Driver=eloq

The number of the Synth may be different, but the important bit is
to find the Synth that refers to the Eloquence voice engine.

4. Immediately under the last line of the entries for whichever Synth
number
is associated with Eloquence, put the following line, substituting the
name
of the desired soundcard in place of the one I have:

Synth1Port=NVIDIA(R) nForce(TM) Audio

If you're not sure exactly what to put after the equals sign, check
in your Speech & Sound settings in Control Panel for the exact wording.

Point 2. My other soundcard is an Audidgy and I really like it. The
sound both in and out is worth the money. The only thing that's irritated
me
slightly is that everything I recorded on my old SB now sounds quite poor,
so I'm contemplating going back and starting again.

If you do buy an Audigy, and you don't want Jaws to use it, you will
need to make the adjustment outlined above to your jfw.ini file.

With previous combinations of soundcards, including older Creative
cards, it's been possible to influence which card Jaws uses by installing
them in a specific order. The Audigy however has none of that and will
stick
itself to Jaws come hell or high water, unless you force Jaws to use a
specific card as above.

Tink.

Hi guys.

I've a bit of a shambles set up here when it comes to soundcards.

I've a low budget SB Live and a High-End Turtle Beach Catalina both in an
XP
Home box.

Now to give a bit of backround.

I bought the TBC from the states and a friend sent it out to me.  However
the mic/line in port is not working!  And hasnt' doen since I got it,
months
back.  And he procrastanated majorly on when he took delivery and when he
sent it out so I couldn't even return it let alone do anything else with
it.

So I've a TBC that I cant' record on but has excellent audio out, and a
soundblaster I can record on but has awful audio out and I cant' use
elaquince through because it's tied to the turtle beach.

Two questions.

1.  Without installing/uninstalling cards can I direct elaquince in jaws
to
use soundcard or or soundcard b as I wish?

Say select soundcard b, reboot and load jaws and it will run with
soundcard
b and do the opposite to get it back to soundcard a?

2.  I've some videos i want to record the audio from quite urgently so I'm
going to be out of pocket regardless of how long I wait.  So a new
soundcard
is called for.  I was really really really really tryign to stay away from
creative but there's very little on the market at that price range of no
more than £100 and not a 20 quid jobby, and I refuse to use onboard sound
as
the microphone port I find isn't good quality at all even on my little
swanky gigabit board.

So it maybe the audidgy I'm going for.

Any experiences?  Good bad points, things to look out for, other cards to
look at?

Thank you!

Barry
