As if they were playing a strategic game of chess, Creative Labs quietly positioned their game pieces in hopes of making one major move that would send the market into a new era of sound. By acquiring a company which has often been referred to as the "Bose of the PC Speaker," Cambridge SoundWorks, Creative built the second pillar for their future knockout triumvirate. The third and final pillar, taking the load off of Creative and Cambridge SoundWorks to support the infrastructure of the triumvirate was put in place by the sound card giant's acquire of Ensoniq, the original producers of the low-cost AudioPCI sound card.

Creative's flagship sound card for quite some while was the Sound Blaster AWE64, it became the somewhat expensive standard for any PC enthusiast's ideal configuration.

Breathing new life into their aging product, Creative's recently established relationship with Ensoniq proved to be a profitable one as they implemented some of Ensonic's technology into their next-generation AWE64, the AWE64D, the first Sound Blaster sound card available in a PCI interface. At the same time Creative was introducing improved versions of the AWE64 and dropping its price, the rest of the market took the opportunity to make use of their many pawns and threaten Creative's domain.

What was never taken into account is that a single well placed move can destroy eternities of actions without logic. While just about every single product on the market is referred to as a "revolutionary new product" by its creators, the SB Live! Creative Labs didn't approach the design of the SB Live! Normally when a manufacturer gives a demo of their product they tend to sweeten up the system it is being demonstrated on, however when you go out to buy the card you usually don't receive all the perks of the system it was demonstrated on.

It is much like being shown a house with a beautiful yard then being told that the yard doesn't come with the house at the time of the purchase.

Approaching the SB Live! What makes the SB Live! The demo systems Creative Labs setup for the media to take a look at weren't doctored up, they were actual SB Live! So what makes up the SB Live! Let's start with the card itself How powerful is the most powerful? Using a more complex processor for sound than we used to use in computers just a few years ago, Creative made it clear that the SB Live!

The first method to achieving that status would be to make sure that all audio calculations were taken care of in the sound hardware and not unloaded onto your CPU, the EMU10K1 definitely accomplishes this with style. The processor does all sound processing at bits and can produce 48kHz sound using Creative's own 8-point interpolation system.

Much like Matrox G which performs all internal graphics calculations at a higher accuracy then dithers the final result to the requested output depth instantly improving image quality, the EMU10K1 applies the same principle to sound production resulting in instantly improved sound quality, no driver support necessary.

Using the supplied cable you can attach the SB Live! This daughtercard extends the SB Live! One thing that you're going to have to get used to with the SB Live!

In spite of the fact that most users that will be considering the Live! If you're worried about the professional qualities of the card, a PC musician emailed me with a test to conduct on the Live! By running a cable between the Live! Unfortunately, like all other Creative sound cards in the past, the Live!

Looks like you can't make a product aimed for the average gamer that also pleases the high end musician. Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live!

When Creative Labs introduced their original Sound Blaster product they managed to rally enough support to bring a greatly desired standard to the PC Audio scene. This standard gained the name "Sound Blaster Compatibility" and the term sound remained synonymous with the Creative label. Never really stepping away from the lime light in terms of product releases Creative Labs has consistently produced new and more advanced sound cards on a consistent basis which is one sign of any successful company, product releases to keep the market's interest focused on them and them alone.

Introduction

Sound Blaster Live! Moving from ISA to PCI allowed the card to dispense with onboard memory, storing digital samples in the computer's main memory and then accessing them in real time over the bus. This allowed for a much wider selection of, and longer playing, samples. It also included higher quality sound output at all levels, quadrophonic output, and a new MIDI synthesizer with 64 sampled voices.
