    Hello Eugene can upgrade KX3553? The mainboard sound card can support up to 192000 hz sampling,Our HQ biggest can update only 24, 96 to 192000。
    3552 and ufx pro plugin has been released,
    Very perfect a version but hope that 3553 can improve the sound quality is a bright spot for BBS, a great creation.I believe you can Eugene.

    Do you understand the difference between a driver (software) and a sound card (hardware)?

    the driver may support it, but does the hardware

    see, if the hardware does not, you can "fake" it in the software (driver)

    thank you,;)

    Audigy 2 zs, Audigy 4 pro, Is to support the.
    I'm just personal opinion

    kX3552 drive Now is the perfect job.

    If later can improve 24 bit 192000 hz it would be great

    I use 3551 on Win 8.1 x64 and don't have any issues. my setup (stereo and 5.1) works perfectly as it did on Win 7 x64. I use direct sound, not ASIO.

    Hello everyone

    I wasnt using KX from 2-3 years. Yesterday I installed 3552ver on Win 8.1 x64.

    I found many informations how to setup, how to use 32bit kx mixer etc.

    Everything is ok, but I have only one problem, using "Master Mixer" I have some crakles/popes sometimes....:( Using "Wave out HQ" sound is clear and all is good but when Im using Wave out HQ then kxDSP doesn't work. I want to create my own DSP setup.

    Is there a way to fix cracles/popes using Master Mixer? I have Audigy 2 ZS SB0350

    thanks in advance for help!

    right click on KX manager->Settings->Setup Buffers increase second one to 10.00ms (or more if needed).

    the installer for 3552 is broken (maybe not for EVERYONE, but it was for me)

    I repaired it by manually repairing registry settings

    One thing you don't say is what the error is. It's all well and good to say 'windows reports kx error", but without details, you'll be lucky to get any help at all

    This is how installation looks when I do that:

    After restart:

    Sound - Control Panel

    Apps Menu:

    Start Menu:

    C/Program Files:

    [​IMG]

    By the way, KX Driver icon is not in taskbar.

    I tried to run installation file as administrator, I set KX Mixer in Compatibility Mode (Windows 7) and I tried to run 2 registry fixes for version KX 3551, but it didn't worked again.

    Maybe Russ can help me again... :)

    I have win 8.1 x64, no problems at all, after install/restart go to manager/sound card and manually chose inf file from kx folder in Program files, then if kx mixer doesnt start use registy changes like below:

    startup:
    it has to be path to x32 ver of kxmixer and You also have to set kxmixer in Compatibility Mode for Windows 7

    if You have windows 8 x86 then I think that You should change all paths from "Program Files (x86)" to "Program Files"

    if You have cracles/popes do this:
    other registry fixes:

    This is what I do to install kX version 3552 and get it working.

    If previous kX version installed, run the kX uninstaller. Restart the PC after it says it's completed, then run the 3552 installer and restart.
    Note: Before messing around with your registry, you might consider making a backup of your registry.
    Open the Start menu and type "regedit" and open regedit.
    Scroll to the top of the window's left pane and click on 'Computer' and then press CTRL-F and search for "kxmixer"
    What you're looking for is the registry entries with a value that is set to C:\Windows\system32\kxmixer.exe.

    On a 32-bit machine, kxmixer.exe is located at C:\Program Files\kX Project\kxmixer.exe
    On a 64-bit machine, kxmixer.exe is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\kX Project\kxmixer.exe

    When these system32 paths are found, double click the entry in the right pane and only change the path in the quotation marks, leaving anything outside of them intact.
    Once set, use CTRL-F to use Find Next. There are many, and all must be correctly set. The searches might be slow on your machine, but 'you gotta do what you gotta do'...

    Following this procedure I restarted my PC and... "kX device is not found". So...
    Open the Start Menu and type Device Manager, open it.
    Under sound video and game controllers is the kX entry. Right click and update driver software.
    There's a 'search automatically' and 'browse my computer' option. I chose to search automatically, and then update with the kX3552 entry that appeared. If nothing in your case, perhaps you would use browse manually, and search the Program Files or Program Files (x86) kX folders - I guess?
    It is at this point the tray speaker icon didn't have that red X of death.
    Now, I restarted the PC, and all was well.

    As others have noted, the driver won't install cleanly on Windows 8 x64 at least. It'll report following:
    Code:
    Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
    
    {Unable to Load Device Driver}
    %hs device driver could not be loaded.
    Error Status was 0x%x
    
    Here's what I did:

    1. Uninstall the previous kX driver using the installer, if any
    2. Reboot
    3. If Windows installs the Creative driver do following steps:
      1. Wait for the install to finish
      2. Open Device Manager
      3. Find eg. Audigy 2 ZS (WDM)
      4. Right-click, choose uninstall and tick delete drivers, OK
      5. Disconnect from the Internet
      6. Reboot
    4. Install the newer driver normally
    5. Reboot
    6. Open Device manager and find kX 10k2 Audio. It will have an exclamation mark.
    7. Right-click, select uninstall, do NOT select delete driver, OK
    8. Click "Scan for hardware changes"
    9. kX 10k2 Audio should now re-appear
    10. Feel free to reconnect to the Internet
    Next follow pkozerski's detailed post #37 for using the 32-bit kxmixer.exe.

    I'm sorry I can't link the post #37 as I don't have 15 posts :(

    EDIT: Also, awesome news for open sourcing the whole deal! I already took a quick look at the source. Next step is to get it to compile :)
