Thank you, will test this later. As coincidental as it seems I pulled my
X-Fi Prelude from my machine last night during cleaning, and never
bothered reinstalling it as I had a bit of lost hope. This is
definitely a huge start.

All of us pushing Creative to release some specs without a ridiculous
NDA would be a big next step.
