    hi there,

    pls check kx 3538k release:
    http://download.kxproject.lugosoft.com/downloads/kxdrv3538k-full.exe

    previous build (3538j: http://www.driverheaven.net/showthread.php?t=97845)
    please review this link for details. also read Project Status

    note: there were NO significant changes in this version, except additional a2zs notebook features + some minor sb0610 (a4 value) initalization issue (I added an option that might affect digital output / line input - please check).
    --
    asio code is the same. I will probably check 3534f-3538 difference soon;
    ac3 decoding stability -might- have improved (pls check)
    --
    as usual, no 24/96, 64 bit, EAX2 etc..
    --
    please check this build. try to reproduce BSOD issue with volume controls (I have never been able to do this myself): turn off automatic reboot (control panel - system - advanced - start-up and recovery: uncheck 'automatic restart', choose 'small memory dump') - if managed to, find minidump (usually in your c:\windows\minidump folder), WinRar it and send it to me with full bug description (include all BSOD numbers!)
    --
    known issues with a2zsnb and supported features:
    - I cannot make analog inputs work. at all...
    - SPDIF input/output + all analog outputs should be o.k.
    - on the 'ins and outs' page there are invalid inputs + graphics for testing purposes. SPDIF Input is accessible as 'Generic' input.
    - on certain chipsets a2zsnb produces the same 'constant noise instead of audio'. this might require PCI latency modifications. please review the thread in 'bug reports' forum and let me know if you manage to fix the issue. at the moment, it is possible to fix this by running 'kxctrl -rv' AND/OR playing a MIDI file AND/OR enable/disable device (don't forget to unload kxmixer first!).

    "kxctrl -shw 22 value" will change input source (at least, will try to: values are 0,1,2,3 -- this doesn't work, unfortunately, but keep trying. review ALSA drivers if you have enough time. latest build, 1.12?, does not support line input, if I'm not mistaken)
    --
    future plans: I would like to release 3539 officially, based on 3538k, provided we fix BSOD issue. no additional features are expected in 3539. there will be NO 3538 final, the next stable build will be 3539. after that, I really hope to start working on x64 version of the driver, provided I get the hardware (might take 1-2 months). Vista support -might- come later.
    --

    good luck and enjoy
    --

    as always, any updates, new code, new effects, translations, whatever, are welcome. pls send them by e-mail. pls check 'delivery report' in your mail client to ensure I received your message.

    You did not mention installation instructions... I had some problems (kxmixer crashing at startup) doing an upgrade install, probably due to incompatible plugins (seems 3538j plugins are not compatible). In any case, I started kxmixer manually (without the --startup switch), and reintialized the DSP to get it working, and then did a reset global settings to remove incompatible plugins. In any case, users may want to do a clean install, or if upgrading, reintialize the DSP before installing, and then reset global settings at some point (similair to installation for 3538j).

    It includes the updated 3538 SDK that is compatible with 3538k.

    38k comes with 38k SDK
    I will change plugin version # in 3539
    --
    I wonder what's the reason for incompatibilities...
    yes: uninstall/re-install is preferred, since kX Setup does not handle versions with the same major number properly (e.g. 3538i and 3538j)

    Not sure, all the plugins do register successfully (with the exception of ProFX (v3.05), which gives an Error: invalid plugin libary (<-- still mis-spelled, hehe)), but kxmixer crashes if you try to load them. They do work fine however, when recompiled with the new SDK.

    BTW: For those who may not understand, the bundled plugins (and .da plugins) work fine as usual.

    Hey Max M, You said you were waiting for 3538 Final to release UFX. Now Eugene say's no 3538 only 3539 stable...so are you planning on doing a UFX for 3539? I would think alot of people are really interested. I really miss those plugins..I cannot use them on my new card because it's not compatible with older version of the driver....

    So far, I haven't been able to reproduce the bsd with the volume change, so all looks good with that. Actually, the volume sliders seem to be a bit smoother in this release. The thing that was causing this for me was having the multimedia keyboard option selected, now it's working fine.

    Griffin Powermate master volume BSODs

    FWIW, I was getting bsods in 3538j while using a usb connected Griffin Powermate knob to control master volume. Using 3538k now (with w2000) and will report any bsods that occur.

    Looking fwd to stable 3539, and Max's UFX !

    Kernel Streaming

    To Eugene:

    How can I playback multichannel at 96KHz using KernelStreaming? It seems that I can't manage to make it work on 3538k too...

    I am using the same code that works with Creative drivers @96KHz and KX@48KHz/16bit, but no chance to work with KX@96KHz...

    How KX needs the data? I used 24bit packed in 32bit, 96KHz and KSAUDIO_SPEAKER_QUAD flag used when trying 4channels, but CreateRenderPin returns null ...

    Hi all. Can anyone send me the lang.ini file? I want to update the spanish translation but I haven't got any computer with a sb card at the moment. I'm using an emu card and by installing kx I will really get in troubles.

    Thanx
    Nando

    Use winrar to open the kxskin.kxs file (Hmm, yes, it is an RAR file actually), and lang.ini is there.

    @Nando, did you get the file you requested (did someone send it to you as of yet)?
