Sound Blaster Recon3d Fatal1ty Professional

Posted on  by admin

I have my associates in Computer Science and I’m currently going to school for my bachelor’s degree in Computer Security. I build my custom Gaming rig to do homework but also listen to music, play games, and watch movies when I had free time while I was going to school. I recently found out that I could not do any updates nor play any games.

I had to reformat my hard drive and lose a little data but did backups but they were all corrupted. I then installed Windows operating system but I was using the Generic audio from the onboard motherboard it wasn’t bad but was missing out with finding drivers and then they speakers weren’t putting out the sound that I wanted plus was missing the software.

I decided to go and look for a sound card that was just dedicated to my motherboard using PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card. I purchased this sound card for my new gaming m-atx rig. I knew from the start that this sound card wasn't designed for audiophiles.

The sound it produces is 100x better than onboard sound without a doubt, but compared to other sound cards within this price range there are better alternatives. Alternatives such as Creative's own Titanium HD, which I also own.This sound card is deigned to give you the best precised audio precision and this sound card delivers with flying colors in that category.

You can easily hear precised foot steps in games like Counter-Strike: GO in the correct positions they are coming from. The Recon3D also includes an updated version of Alchemy to enable games with software accelerated sound.The microphone is comes with is pretty neat. It has dual microphones that connect together to give you a omnidirectional like microphone.

It's post to latch onto your voice and block out environmental sounds. I don't use it because all my friends say I sound clearer with my $10 Logitech microphone. The Creative control panel also includes a feature to help reduce ambient noise.Overall, if you are looking at purely a gaming sound card then this one is the best one to get. If you are looking more for audio quality, maybe take a look at an Asus Xonar. If you want an overall good in both categories but nothing amazing take a look at Creative's Titanium HD.

The next generation Sound Blaster card - the Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty Professional - is powered by Sound Core3D and heralds a new age in 3D gaming audio and online voice communication. Hardware-accelerated THX TruStudio Pro audio technologies deliver unsurpassed audio playback quality, while the innovative CrystalVoice processing, coupled with the included beamforming microphone, gives you the edge in multiplayer games with crystal clear vocal fidelity.

Its impressive internal hardware is matched by an equally stunning design, complete with a red-hot glowing Sound Core3D processor. Engineered for low power consumption and high performance, the Sound Core3D processor is Creative's first sound and voice processor to integrate a quad-core high-performance digital signal processor (DSP) and high-quality converters onto a single chip.

Dolby Digital Live encodingDolby Digital Live encoding allows you to connect to your decoder or home theater system through a single digital cable for compelling 5.1 surround sound from any source.

The speaker/headphones setup is also nice because it allows you to adjust for the difference between the two devices. A lot of times you will want to boost the forward speakers or lower the bass with headphones and all this can be done on the fly.

Under the Crystal Voice, settings you can boost your mic output or adjust the noise reduction making sure you sound perfect within games or just normal voice chat.

Overall, the Recon 3D Fatal1ty changed my view on sound. I can hear people sneaking up on me in first person shooters and immerse myself in the battle music of SWTOR. For those of you who take your gaming seriously a top-notch sound card is a must because it does give an advantage just as much as a better monitor or video card does.

Besides that, being able to enjoy movies and music with high-definition sound truly makes your computer the main entertainment center, so if you spend a lot time with your PC then you want a great audio experience and the Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty Professional sound card delivers just that.
