A while back I fancied EQing my mic input for Skype or Teamspeak etc. How hard could it be? As it turns out, apparently impossible... I have the Sound Blaster Audigy 2 PCI card, running kX 5.10.00.3550. I have a fair understanding of the DSP and I've hacked together custom signal paths and used a variety of modules before. However, even with EVERYTHING in the DSP disconnected and even removed - even with the prolog removed! - Skype and other Windows apps can still get the incoming AC97 Mic signal via 0/1. Whenever I disconnect or add things to the signal chain for the ASIO prolog -> epilog or prolog -> xrouting -> epilog connections, that can be heard in things like Cubase (which use ASIO) but Windows apps seem completely unaffected by an empty DSP. It's intensely frustrating. What am I doing wrong?
