    Default Finally, A Creative X-Fi Driver Going Into ALSA

    Phoronix: Finally, A Creative X-Fi Driver Going Into ALSA

    Support for the Creative X-Fi sound cards on Linux has been a mess to say the least. These high-end audio processors were released by Creative Labs about four years ago and there still isn't pleasant support for the X-Fi series on Linux...

    So was there positive communication between the developers and Creative? If not, then there still isn't any reason to care about their products.

    Edit: Well it seems Creative did in fact! Now how long will this last, and should one buy a Creative sound card?

    ZOMG so Creative finally responded to the alsa devs . The v1.00 alsa driver from Creative has been working well for me, so did the sbxfi that was removed from kernel and now it will remerged as snd-ctxfi. Let's see if snd-ctxfi works with Auzen X-Fi cards.

    Hmm. Any differences between this and the OSS4 one? I'm avoiding ALSA like the plague.

    Would have been excited if I still had the card.

    Yes one of the best chips for games, and also for sound if made by Auzen, plus when you mod your card not even +1K external DAC can touch the analog sound quality:


    ^^ OPA2227 on the pic, but as of now I have 2x Burr-Brown OPA637BP OP-AMPS .
