During installation you will be asked which mode you would like to choose: Game, Entertainment, or Audio Creation mode. Each mode has unique skins, but configurations are basically the same, just located on different areas.
Game modes style is very “tech” oriented. Most of the basic configuration is on page one. Compared to the Audio Creation and Entertainment modes, the usability and functionality of the Game mode falls in between the other two modes. Game mode features lots of configuration possibilities without having to search around.
Entertainment mode is very sleek in its styling. It would be for the general user without much experience. With some searching around you can find all the same configuration options in this mode that game mode has to offer in its user interface. The first page is very simple to use just treble, bass and volume.
Audio Creation Mode
For all you disk jockey’s and music junkies out there, this mode is for you. The Audio Creation mode features more configuration options available on one page when compared to all the other modes. This mode is for those of us that know what we are looking for and want it all at our finger tips.
After the installation is complete, a toolbar is installed at the top of your screen that looks like the image below.
The tool bar includes six programs, ranging from THX configuration, to a Creative media player. We will look at the THX program later in this review
