I used Google to get information about your card and there seems to be
no substantial difference to my TerraTec a simple 2 channel card too.
If your computer is manly a DAW or there is no need to use the "good"
PCI slot for another card then change the used slot. I have problems
with a non-music PCI card and the vendor asked me to change the PCI
slot, maybe I will try this but for me the main thing is that I can use
my computer to make music. Some PCI slots won't work with some cards.
I agree with Daniel to leave the faders close to maximum but some people
may have equipment that won't be fine with this because the impedance of
the IOs won't fit or potentiometers are defect, so it should be possible
to use the software faders.
If the card isn't defect it would be kind if the coders of envy24control
will take a look if there are any special specifications with the
audiophile 2496 and maybe they are able to program a patch to get it
work. If the card isn't defect and there will be no way to solve the
problem this card must be set on a black list for hardware with Linux.
"Accidents happens", sometimes a Linux on my computer sounds like if
there is covering a towel the speakers and the reason for this seems to
, to solve this I never tried holy water but I suggest
to reinstall 64studio or to try another version or to make a test with
JAD or Ubuntu Studio.
64studio 2.0 32bit wasn't fine with my old ASRock mobo, 64studio 2.1rc1
32bit is fine with my old ASRock mobo and it seems to be fine with my
new ASUS mobo, also 64studio 2.1rc1 64bit seems to be fine. I still have
to solve some problems like a inconsistency of CHS and LBA my Suse Linux
won't run with but 64studio 2.1rc1 32bit and 64bit seems to work stable
except for the use of DVDRAM until now.
I can change the output levels without problems. My Envy24 based card is:
