When you install a new sound card, it’s always a good idea to go and uninstall all of the old drivers so that complications won’t arise. If you use something like “Driver Cleaner Pro” to remove the drivers, you should be good to go.
Turn off your computer and push the new sound card firmly into an open PCI slot, plug in your sound system’s cables into their designated ports, and then turn on your computer.
Now you can insert the included CD into your optical drive to begin installation.
There are 5 tabs in the program that is included with the Diamond XS 7.1 sound card. I’ll be giving a brief description of each so that you can get a feel for what this program enables you to do with your sound card.
The first tab is “Main Settings”, which is where the user can modify the basics of their setup, such as room layout and the number of speakers. For the room layout, the user can view it in 2 different formats; one is virtual layout, where you can change the virtual position of the speakers, and the other is for the real layout.
Next, we have “Mixer”, which is the exact same as the Windows mixer. This allows the user to have all the options consolidated into one program.
