Win7 constant echo effect when recording ?
I recently installed Win7 on the same hardware I had XPPRO on. Ever since I always get a constant echo effect when I record singing or sounds. This seems to be a Vista/Win7 feature, not a driver or SoundBlaster setting since all sound effects are off and more ppl have been complaing about the same thing since swithching to Vista/Win7.
Anyone know how to shut this feature off ?
Thanks in advance !

P.S I have fairly good computer knowledge and I?ve been all over the system sound settings and creative driver settings but I can?t find the cause, this seems to be a somewhat hidden feature within the os.

Has the driver been updated to a Win7 version?

You may need a fully Win7-compatible driver or software for that card. If there isn't one, try a Vista driver. (Or try running the Creative software (e.g., sound recorder)in a compatibility mode if it isn't available for Win7.)
Have you looked here

Was it for the software? Or the default recording device? Anything like that?

Services ?

by boba In reply to Interesting. What setting ...

Hi, I think it?s in the audio services started up with windows but if I disable them I won?t hear any sounds and I don?t know how to edit them. I suspect an audio service has a setting for echo default on ?
Thank you for your time :)
