Creative has finally released updated software to allow their Audigy series function properly in Windows Vista. The downside is that they are charging $9.99 for it. This can be taken many different ways. Yes, they should support their product, however none of their products denote Windows Vista support. It also has taken a while to get stable drivers working, and programmers are not free. All that aside, NGOHQ has found a workaround for those who don’t want to pony up the cash.
Additionally, the ALchemy Audigy Edition enables sample rate conversion and hardware audio mixing. The software also features an update feature that downloads lists of the latest games supported by ALchemy. Creative Labs currently supports 104 legacy game titles with ALchemy. Supported titles include Command & Conquer 3, F.E.A.R., Far Cry, Guild Wars, Oblivion, World of Warcraft and others.
