Creative Sound Blaster Z Sound Card Review

Review Score:
24 Flares 24 Flares ×

After installing the Creative software we opened the control panel up to have a look at it. The first page is all about the Pro Studio, which includes the Crystalizer and Surround features, all which have attractive and easy to use sliders.

There are also options for CrystalVoice which when coupled with the Beamforming Microphone should allow you to game safe in the knowledge that your team mates will always hear you clearly.

Scout Mode is a proprietary technology which allows you to hear your enemies from further away, which could potentially give you a ‘distinct tactical advantage in combat’.

As you would expect there are also options to allow you to set-up your sound card to work with both your speakers and headphones.

You can also alter the the encoder used and adjust the volume of the inputs and outputs on the Mixer page.

There is also a more standard Equalizer option (with several presets) and the ability to play a stereo mix to digital output.

    My biggest problem with creative has always been their drivers and software. it is so unoptimised and clunky and often there will be huge bugs which take a long time to fix. I try to avoid them when possible if I was being honest.
