Creative ASIO vs Generic ASIO (volume difference)

I have a Creative SoundBlaster card.

When I use the generic LowLat ASIO driver, the sound is much louder than when using the Creative Labs ASIO driver.

Does anyone know why the volume would be much different?

Also, am i better off using the Generic or the Creative labs ASIO driver?

Thanks :slight_smile:

The drivers are written by different developers, hence the difference. Usually people say use the driver written for the audio card. However, try both, and compare latency and performance, etc.

Possibly there is a control panel for the creative with additional level control.
