  1. Something of a surprise from Turtle Beach here, they've released a new Beta WDM Driver for the Santa Cruz for Windows 98SE, Me, 2000 & XP - Build 4184 (Previous Build 4161). Here's what's new;

    * Optimized Installer. Removes old driver & installs new one without having to run the install twice. Also installs in 98SE/ME/2K/XP.
    * MP9 5.1 support under XP. Now you can play multi-channel WMA files!
    * SRS CSII Virtual 5.1 plugin for MP9 works with this driver.
    * AC3 digital over SPDIF working in 98SE (with MS QFE 269601USA8.EXE)
    * Fixed game port conflict with MPX motherboards.
    * Enhanced MIDI playback with better timing & fixed region exclusive(hihats).
    * Fixed DSound volume scaling. Now distant sounds in games are more audible.
    * Fixed distortion/intermittant noise playing multiple channels at various sample rates.
    * Fixed Center/Sub volumes to better match front/rear output levels.
    * synced up the windows speaker modes with Santa Cruz Control Panel.
    * Optimized boot time & resume from standby times.

    Download Now. We've got that card covered here in our Soundcard guide.
