The audio has never been too good. Signal to noise is low, and I like to run it through my amp to practice songs, and thinking about making a demo CD soon. Interestingly enough,under audio devices, I have 3 speakers I can select from, and a "digital output device". All claim high definition. The one that plays the loudest through the laptop speakers won't play through the headset jack at all.
I'm using the Microsoft drivers, Vista (don't laugh, it has worked for me... mostly). Any suggestion as I browse for better? Thanks.
