Windows 10 1709 and so on 1809 is having issue with direct sound issue. It was cause by windows updating the sound system and creative just updated their drivers in the drivers store. My creative X-Fi titanium is working fine now with the windows 10 1809 . Thanks Creative for still supporting our old sound card. I deeply appreciated it.
Sound card is a must for those who loves to listen song , recording, and broadcasting. In my opinion creative titanium is rock solid for me. I have no idea how the latest sound card perform. Extra boost mic and mic effect on EAX is a must to get the creative vs other brand and very good recording function for program such as camfrog or song broadcasting. That’s my opinion. ASUS is just a pure listening sound card nothing more at this moment with very high price tag. ASUS recording is bad and mic volume is low. That’s what i saw on my friend sound card broadcasting.
