Our MediaTool Box software for Sound Blaster ZxR, Sound Blaster X-Fi HD, Sound Blaster Digital Music Premium HD, and Sound Blaster Omni Surround 5.1, which requires Adobe's Flash Player to work, will cease to work properly if you have updated your Windows recently. Our in-house tests also revealed that Adobe Flash Player may have been removed on earlier Windows 10 systems (prior to the Windows 10 version 20H2 update).

- This means that you will never be constrained by the recording quality of any MP3 song or game as you would be able to tune the sound accordingly.
- However, even if you leave everything at default settings, the sound is already enhanced as compared to the onboard sound chip/card of your notebook/PC. This product is best matched to a 5.1 sound system.
