Sound problem with SB and FS2002

Recommended Posts

Hi gang!Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem: I'm using SB with FS2002...when flying I can only hear ATC/other pilots talking if I have the sound turned off in FS...if the sound is ON, then they break up to the point of not being able to understand them. I can also hear them clearly if I have the FS minimized (to check Servinfo for example).It's just not the same flying without the sound of the aircraft...but I also need to be able to hear ATC!Thanks!

What have you got for a computer?Sounds like the system can't keep up with all the sounds, I had the same problem with my old computer.

Hi dave, thanks for the reply!I have a 2G processor...512M RAM...SB Live sound card. I run a lot of music programs (recording/editing/processing) software without any troubles on this system...I'm thinking it's a configuration problem with something...???Thanks!

Ok system power should not be the problem then, whats running in the background? Try shutting things like MSN and AOL messager down, and any programs that us your sound card. Try and free up the sound card so only AVC and FS/SB are using it.

Hi Dave,I don't have anything running except what you mentioned...FS, SB and AVC - I don't like having anything else running while I'm flying so I can maximize system power ONLY for FS. It's getting FRUSTRATING...I hope you're not running out of ideas! :)Cheers!

Hi,I can think of 2 things. First, the on-board sound system of your motherboard. Have you checked that is NOT activated? Check within Device Manager that your sound source/processor is your SB live SOUND CARD and not your MOBO's onboard sound card.Second, sometimes the SB software (especially the Sound Presets, i.e., Jazz music, Metal music, EAX effects) can cause such problems. I don't know though if the SB Live! supports this technology.Touchdown.

Hi Touchdown...thanks for the ideas. The onboard sound is disabled - I never enabled it when I installed this motherboard (I checked JUST IN CASE, and it IS disabled) I'm not using any of the effects functions in the Sound Blaster software - everything is set to "No Effects".Thanks for the ideas though...I never would have thought of the effects causing problems!Cheers!

Other thing you can try and I'm not sure why I didn't tell you this sooner. In the options of AVC you can change your sound device, try changing it from what ever it is now to one of the other listed.

Dave,The settings in AVC TUNER is "SB Live Audio"...the other (not used option) is "Primary Sound Driver". In AVC CLIENT, I'm using "Direct Sound - SB Live"...the other option (not used) is "Primary Sound Driver".I'll try changing them around and see what happens.Thanks!!!Cheers!
