I've not been playing much music the last few years, but I recently teamed up with an old music partner and we are getting back into the game. We'll need to be able to do some recordings so I want to set up my home pc. Please bear with me: I'm not very knowledgeable harware-wise.
I tried reinstalling my old Audigy 2 card, but my system doesn't detect it at all. I'm running Windows 7 x64. (Back when I was using it, I was on XP x86). I found drivers on Creative's website -- SBAX_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0017.exe -- which they claim work with W7. But when the card is in the slot and I run the driver installation file, it tells me that it finds no Creative card in the system... The card also doesn't appear at all in Windows' Device Manager.
I don't know if someone could help me figure this out.
Otherwise, if it's a lost cause, I could look into buying a newer card. But I can't afford anything expensive now (I couldn't justify it at this point anyway). All I'd like are better sound drivers to adjust latency when I record tracks.
So if you have suggestions, I'm all ears.
Thanks in advance.
