    Well, they are newer, that's enough itself :)
    I am not sure if they will or will not work on SB Live! - someone with that card should try it...

    I installed the new driver on my Audigy 2 and there is still no Stereo X2.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Are you trying to install VXD drivers on Windows2k/XP/2k3? Because they don't support it.

    A guy that mods Creative's drivers (used in my guide at FM at Guide#3). said that to use the ZS drivers and apps (THX) on Audigy2, they need more than just patching em with the ctcomp.exe. If i will get them in my hands, i'll post here to share em.

    Till then though, how about a working link of the ZS wdm drivers?. . .

    Linking is ok as long as you link here: http://www.forgotten-realms.cfl.pl/other/torturecity/

    Slimpak is a customised basic set of creative apps, providing every actually useful feature of CT's apps and a few useless ones as well (although much less of those than the standard package). Those apps cause less problems than the standard A2 set.

    WDM Drivers

    Hey guys ! I have just updated my Audigy 2 with new one posted here, I believe it is the version 402. It works flawlessly after patching the drivers with 'ctcomp' Thought I let you guys know. In the Device Manager it shows version 402. My question is Is this the ZS WDM drivers ?

    Yes. This thread is dedicated to A2 ZS drivers after all.

    I still don't see the point in installing these if you can't use the new apps. yet, and the only benefit is an updated driver build.

    But after updating the driver build I found the sound to be astonishingly great. Wow ! you have to listen to believe it. Frankly, I don't give a damn for the other applications. The sound is far more superior to the Audigy 1 or 2. My complete collections classical music appears to be clear and distinct.

    Are you sure? I mean it could be you expect an improvement in sound so your ear/mind maybe playing tricks on you to think it actually sounds better. My reasoning is that w/ my current setup there hasn't been any issues what so ever.

    Bah, most "features" CT's apps provide are bloatware BS that additionally resample everything to 16bits 48KHz. Including CMSS, Speaker Calibration and other useless crap.

    @purush: Have you got any proof of your claim? I mean ABX results. Because sound card drivers don't work in a way that could impact the sound in such a way, unless it's an intentional distortion (yes, distortion) or a serious bug. When playing back music, the PCM stream should be simply passed to the DAC without any processing. So chceck your placebo and verify that no CMSS BS is turned on.
