I recently installed a Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit sound card (internal) on my computer. It should include EAX HD Advanced 3.0. I use EAX effects for music. They work nicely with everything I record. But my problem is with using EAX while playing om my keyboard, Creative Prodikeys. In the Prodikeys DM program there is a choice of two MIDI output synths. When I choose the Microsoft GS Wavetable SW synth everything works fine. But when I choose Creative SoundFont Synth I get no EAX effect in the audio output (while playing). Since I have to use this output device in order to use the sound fonts I have installed from various sources, this is a problem. (The Microsoft Synth can only use preinstalled sounds). No one seems to explain why EAX does not work when playing the keyboard with the Creative synth as output device. In particular, it is strange since the Creative synth is the one Creative recommends, in fact EAX and this synth where on the same installation disc! It should perhaps be added, that if I record what I am playing, EAX effects may be used. But this is hardly how it should work? The situation is like having a violin, that has accoustic properties that only may be heard when the sound has been recorded, but not when you are playing.
