Using SounFont Bank in Audigy 2 with Audiophile 2496

Posted on

Member Since: Sep 22, 2004

Hi guys!

I've got a SB Audigy 2 card installed in my PC and yesterday I also installed a Audiophile 2496 card. I have set the audiophile as my default player in all the music applications that I use (Cubase, Logic, Acid) , and for my Kompakt sampler software and Fruity Loops I have also set the audiophile to be the default. Therefore when playing back instruments in Kompakt and Fruity Loops I can hear them (i.e I get output in my HiFi which I've connected to the audiophile). I have connected my MIDI keyboard to the Audiophile.

However, I want to use the Soundfont bank software that came with my audigy 2 as it has some good samples on it. So, I hooked the Line Out of my Audigy2, to the Input of the Audiophile. Now, there is a sound being played, as in the audiophile control panel the peaks are moving, However, I can not get an output into my HiFi system.

I'm not sure what is the cause of the problem, but think it could be something to do with my settings. Can somebody please help me sort this problem out. I would be very grateful.

Thank you very much.

You have to set up the routing to send the hardware input to the hardware output in the control panel. The Delta control pannels are kinda overly confusing I think personally, but that is where you would have to make the changes...

Hi, Sorry about double posting. I didn't really know which category to post my thread in.

thanks for your help. But could you please explain in more detail how I would do this, because, as you said, the control panel is pretty confusing. Also, to achieve what I want, have I wired everything up properly, i.e. is it right to have the Line Out in the Audigy2 connected to the input of the Delta?

Well, I can't explain in great detail, I got rid of my Audiophile a couple months back in favor of the easier ESI Juli@. However, if you open the control panel, in the routing options, you have radio buttons to choose how thing go from input to output, you need to have a little trial and error playing around in there.

The best senario is getting a mixer and pluging every output into it and having a sub out of the mixer going to the Audiophile ins...makes switching signal paths easier in any situation.

Yes ! Much easier . The method is explained in the Tips section, and can be a little weird getting used to, but once you got it down, you'll wonder why there is any other way . What kind'a mixer are you using ?... and welcome to HRC, Mr. Bill . : )

First of all thanks alot to everyone for replying. Excellent and helpful forum. Thank you!

Secondly, I managed to sort the problem out. It was to do with the routing. Everytime I want to use the Input from the Audigy 2 I have to select the H/W IN 1/2 in the control panel, and the WavOut 1/2 when outputting. Just like you said!

However, I understand what your are saying about the 'pluggin everything into a mixer', because when it came to connecting all these cables and equipment together, my brother did point out that it would be easier, like you all said, to connect all output to a mixer (I have the Behringer UB1204)and then have a single cable conecting from the output of the mixer to the Input of the Audiophile. I was a bit reluctant at first to use this method as i thought the sound quality may suffer for some reason but as you have said it is a better method to adopt, I shall be doing this. I guess that it will mean that everytime I want to even just use the SoundFont bank software though, I will always have to turn on my mixer, right?

Thanks again everyone!
