    hello,

    3539 is finally out!

    changes:
    * improved a2zsnb support
    * added ASIO support for Vista (x86 ONLY)
    * several minor fixes

    developer note:
    The driver no longer links against debugging libraries, legacy DSP effects and plugins might not work without recompilation! MFC42D and MSVCRTD no longer required.

    known issues:

    1. hardware-related
    * digital noise/beep instead of audio playback (PCI bus-related) - since 2001... on certain PCI chipsets only.

    solutions: try to disable/enable the device (don't forget to close kX Mixer first!); try 'kxctrl -rv'; try to play any MIDI file for some time; reboot

    * Line3 (AUX) may be too noisy on A2PlatinumEx (undocumented initalization)
    solution: try to disable/re-enable the driver in the device manager (don't forget to close kX Mixer)

    * sysex is corrupt if it is too long
    I tried to reproduce this problem: MIDI-In is working properly, MIDI Out seems to be buggy. don't know if I can fix this soon

    2. OS-Specific issues
    * NO x64 support (Vista x64 and WinXP x64)
    * NO support for AC-3 stuff in Vista (please check, I'm not sure...)
    * Vista mixer controls are not working properly. Please don't use them. kX Mixer might be missing certain sliders. You can unassign all mixer controls and use kX Mixer instead of Windows Vista Mixer. Or just ignore kX Mixer controls and use Vista mixer instead
    * for better audio quality, set Vista audio format to stereo, 48000, 16 bit (for non-HQ devices)

    3. known a2zs notebook issues
    * there might be an audible click when starting audio playback and for every MIDI note - no solution
    * there might be constant noise instead of audio playback: solutions: disable/enable the device in the device manager; or: reboot; or: kxctrl -rv
    * certain PCMCIA controllers are not compatible. please review Creative labs site for details
    * all audio inputs and outputs (including digital) should work
    * AC-3 functionality was not fully tested. please report your thoughts on this
    * XTRAM DSP effects can produce audible noise. This is caused by BIOS setting (HLT instruction to keep the CPU idle) - solution: disable this in BIOS


    this driver version does NOT support (as 3538 and previous ones...):
    * EAX 2.0
    * 24/96 ASIO
    * WaveHQ device (24/96) playback/recording on p17v (a2value, a2zsnotebook) - it was errornously enabled in 3538, but since p16v and p17v are different chips, no support is currently available (it didn't work in 3538 anyway)
    * E-mu 1820-like hardware
    * passthru on 10k1-based devices

    ---
    finally, download link:

    iFolder.ru Áåñïëàòíûé õîñòèíã ôàéëîâ - õðàíåíèå ôàéëîâ, îáìåí ôàéëàìè ÷åðåç èíòåðíåò (ôàéëîîáìåííèê).

    installation notice:

    - uninstall any 3538 version first. if you have any setting files, save DSP configuration separately, since some of the settings are no longer compatible with previous 3538 builds. this is IMPORTANT! :)

    =====
    new 3539 bug report thread -- please use IT instead of this thread for bug reports:

    E., I can't see any link to the driver download, once I click on the link you gave to the Russian site.

    The file is actually there but you need to jump through a couple of hoops to get it. If you translate the page (AltaVista - Babel Fish Translation), you will see that the bandwidth (from foreign traffic) for the site was exceeded, and it tells you that you need to visit one of the sponsors in order to download the file.

    i.e.
    In the paragraph under the file info, click on the word: "сюда", then click on one of the links on the page that opens, and at the top of the screen you should see a counter counting down from 30 seconds. When it completes, another page should open with an image verification thing... enter the code that the image shows and hit enter and you will be given the download link.


    Thanks E.
    :)

    Thanks Johnny1982!! That did it for me. I don't have the Google toolbar, so can't translate the page.

    No 5.1 under sb live?

    The driver works under Vista almost the same as 3538m (with my hardware). I still can select 5.1 sound in surrounder and i hear sound from all speakers, but software like winamp, games etc... see only stereo and kx is only upmixing my sound from stereo to 5.1. By the way with this new driver i can't press "configure" in vista sound properties, so i can't change speaker setup.
    After that everything works great.
    If someone have any idea how can i set the driver to work in true 5.1 mode i'll be happy to use this driver.
    Thanks for any reply.
    P.S. My sound card is SB Live 5.1, more info here:

    I posted this in the bug report also.
    I uninstalled 3538m and tried to install 3539 with no luck. When it gets to the driver install page I click install and get an error screen. I uninstalled 3539 and reinstalled 3538m and it installs fine. Uninstalled 3538m and tried to install 3539 and same error screen. I uninstalled 3539 and reinstalled 3538m and I'm back to were I was.

    @silvertones
    What was the error you got?
    If it was that it could not detect any kX compatible hardware (or something like that), make sure that Windows re-detects your card before installing 3539 (do a "Scan for hardware changes" in Device Manager after uninstalling 3538m).

    After uninstalling 3538 I reboot so that win redetects. I double cloick on the .exe file and the app. loads but when i go to install the drivers it says "error installing drivers"
    As mentioned I've uninstalled and reinstalled 3538m with no trouble so It's not my method. Could the file be corrupted. I got it from Johnnys link. Can't read Russian.

    Ok, I was hoping for a less generic error message.

    Maybe something with Win2K? Any other Win2K users have any problems?

    I suppose that is possible, maybe try re-downloading it, or if you PM me your email address, I could send you the one I used (if you want).

    no, it can't be broken download.
    because he said - "...i click install..."
    the download is just packed files in one exe.
    install screen comes after finishing unpacking and starting setup.exe.
    if it can be unpacked without errors - then probably the problem is somewhere else....
    try installing 3538m, and then install 3539 without removing 3538m.
    this works for me fine, the setup resets all configurations by itself anyway.

    please, do not duplicate the same posts here and there. Posts at "bug reports" are enough. Anybody interested will be able to read it there. thanks.

    Yeah, I didn't think it was going to make a difference, but I figured it could not hurt to try. I am still wondering if other Win2K users have had any problems... Did you try skipping the install driver part, and then run kxsetup from the kX directory to install the driver, or try manually installing it (i.e. update driver in Device Manager and browse to kx.inf, etc)?
