    Re: Day 2: Win Creative Sound Blaster goodies

    My first proper piece of sound kit was the Soundblaster AWE 32 Gold, i used that for a while until the port was no longer supported by motherboards, and then since then i have used on board sound.

    BUT ! i would like a proper sound kit again, just prioritize other things with my meager pension.
    So i am in it for the win

    That brings back some memories. I remember shelling out a ridiculous amount of money for one along with a Wave Blaster and addon RAM. I was in AWE (ahem ) being able to play around with the old sound fonts so easily after all the faffing about I was used to with the Atari ST.

    Yes it was not a cheap piece of kit, and like you i filled the memory slots too.
    And i played around with beep beep music too, before i decided that i better stick to making proper music by bashing the drums or tearing in some poor strings.

    I also expanded to a 17" screen way before all other i knew, and when they finally got there i moved on to 22" and that Screen pretty much cost the same as a decent computer.

    They come in black as well. I actually ordered a set of them yesterday for my girlfriend's Christmas, they get some pretty decent reviews and at £75, they seem like a bargain on Amazon.

    That would be a nice upgrade from my current Soundblaster Z. Many thanks to Hexus and Creative.

    Re: Day 2: Win Creative Sound Blaster goodies

    A number of years ago I bought an Audigy 2 NX which fixed my laptops audio problems (poor quality sound and no decent volume) but sold it when I sold the laptop.
    Great piece of kit and being USB, I could plug it into any PC easily.
    Would love to win either of these Creative products, thanks for the giveaway opportunity. :-)

    Re: Day 2: Win Creative Sound Blaster goodies

    My very first Creative Labs product was a 'Games Blaster' 8 voice FM 8bit ISA card purchased from a computer fair for £99 many year ago! I have other Creative Labs sound cards, but WIN 10 does not like then. Drivers loaded, but no sound!

    Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeenteresting..... I've slowly been coming around to the idea of these things, even though most of my stuff still requires 3.5mm.
    All depends on how they work, I guess... in terms of control, I mean. SO many options out there, and each seems to have a different set of twists, taps and the like.

    I've got some BT earpiece things but on a neckband, I can see losing small earpod type devices being an issue..
