Sound Blaster Software
The Sound Blaster AE-7 uses the new unified software package called Sound Blaster Connect and is universal across all of the Sound Blaster products. Installing the software is product specific so if you want to switch between products on the same system you’ll need to reinstall Sound Blaster Connect to achieve full function.
Below are some of the screens from the Sound Blaster Connect software. As you can see there are quite a few profiles to choose from and lots of ways to customize your audio experience.
There are many things I like about this version of the Sound Blaster Connect software. First you get real control over desktop audio vs headphones and the SBX settings apply to whatever output you select. I am also a fan of how easy it is to change the Audio Quality with selections up to 32bit at 96kHz and higher in the right configuration.
