Drive IR to your Sound Blaster Live! audio card to get the best audio solution available for your music, digital audio content creation, games, movies and other Internet entertainment. The Live! Drive IR has a front panel, which allows you to connect commonly used audio sources to external devices easily. It conveniently allows you to plug in your microphone and headphones, and adjust the gain/volume from the front panel. Live! Drive IR also provides MIDI, as well as, digital input and output connectors for your audio recording and content authoring purposes. The infrared receiver on the Live! Drive IR lets you control your PC and perform tasks (such as playing audio CDs and video CDs) remotely from the comfort of your sofa or bed by using the Creative RemoteCenter remote control. System Requirements 2 Live! Drive IR Quick Start SB0010 The minimum system requirements for Live! Drive IR are: ❑ An installed Sound Blaster Live! (with an AUD_EXT expansion header) ❑ An available 5¼" PC drive bay ❑ Genuine Intel® Pentium® class processor: 166 MHz for Windows 95/98 or Windows Millennium Edition, 200 MHz for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000 ❑ Intel or 100% compatible motherboard chipset ❑ Windows 95, 98 or Millennium Edition, Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000 ❑ 16 MB RAM for Windows 95/98 or Millennium Edition (32 MB RAM recommended), 32 MB RAM for Windows NT 4.0, 64 MB RAM for Windows 2000 ❑ 160 MB of free hard disk space ❑ Headphones or amplified speakers (available separately) ❑ CD-ROM drive required for software installation Your Live! Drive IR The front panel of your Live! Drive IR has these jacks, connectors and controls: RCA Auxiliary In jacks Connects to consumer equipment such as VCR, TV and CD player, via RCA Auxiliary outputs. If a particular INPUT source (for example, Line In 2) is supported by the Live! Drive IR as well as the Digital I/O card, only the input on the Live! Drive IR will be enabled. However, using the microphone via the Line In 2/Mic In 2 input on the Live! Drive IR will also disable the Line In 2 input on the Digital I/O card. To connect to your existing computer headphones and microphone to the Live! Drive IR, use the ¼” to 3.5mm adapter provided. Optical SPDIF In/Out connectors Connects to digital audio devices such as DAT and MiniDisc recorders, via optical input/output. Infrared Receiver Lets you control your PC using the RemoteCenter remote control. MIDI In/Out connectors Connects to MIDI devices using the Mini DIN-toStandard DIN cable provided. RCA SPDIF In/Out jacks Connects to digital audio devices such as DAT and MiniDisc recorders, via RCA input/output. ¼” Headphones jack Allows you to connect to a pair of high-quality headphones. Your speaker output will be muted when you connect the headphones. Headphones Volume Control Controls the headphones output volume. Line In 2/Mic In 2 selector (Microphone Gain Control) To switch to Line In 2, turn the knob counter-clockwise over the Line In 2/Mic In 2 mode separator mark until a “click” sound is heard. To switch back to Mic In 2, turn the knob clockwise over the separator mark until a “click” sound is heard. To control the microphone gain, continue to turn clockwise. ¼” Line In 2/Mic In 2 jack Allows you to connect to a high-quality dynamic microphone or audio device such as an electric guitar, DAT, or MiniDisc player. It is recommended to lower the gain level of the Mic In 2 jack to the minimum before connecting a microphone. Line In 2/Mic In 2 mode separator mark Figure 1: Jacks, connectors and controls on the Live! Drive IR. Live! Drive IR Quick Start SB0010 3 Switching Audio Input Sources You need to install the software first before you can switch audio input sources. On your Sound Blaster Live! and Live! Drive IR, two audio input sources may share a connection. In such cases, only one of the input source can be enabled and used at any one time. If your audio card has an I2S connector, you can use only either one of the following inputs at any one time: ❑ I2S ❑ Line In 2 or Line In 2/Mic In 2 To switch the audio input source: 1. Click Start -> Programs -> Creative -> Sound Blaster Live! -> Surround Mixer. 2. On the Mixer deck (lower portion of Surround Mixer), click any of the audio input source icon, and then select either the I2S In or Line In 2/Microphone 2 icon. 3. Click the red plus sign above the I2S In or Line In 2/Mic In 2 icon. 4. In the Other Advanced Controls dialog box, select the Enable Line In 2/Mic In 2 check box to enable the Line In 2/Mic In 2 input source. Clear the check box to enable I2S In. However, if the SPDIF Bypass feature and Aux In 2 are both enabled, both the SPDIF In and Aux In 2 channels will be available. For details on the SPDIF Bypass feature, see “Digital I/O” on page 14. 4 Live! Drive IR Quick Start SB0010 If your Live! Drive IR has Aux In 2 connectors, you can use only either one of the following inputs at any one time: ❑ Aux In 2 ❑ SPDIF In (Coaxial or Optical) To switch the audio input source: 1. Click Start -> Programs -> Creative -> Sound Blaster Live! -> Surround Mixer. 2. On the Mixer deck (lower portion of Surround Mixer), click any of the audio input source icon, and then select either the SPDIF In or Auxiliary 2 icon. 3. Click the red plus sign above the SPDIF In or Auxiliary 2 icon. 4. In the Other Advanced Controls dialog box, select the Enable Auxiliary 2 check box to enable the Auxiliary 2 input source. Clear the check box to enable SPDIF In. Connecting Headphones To listen to an analog source (e.g. CD Audio) using headphones, make sure that in Surround Mixer, the recording source selected is “What U Hear”. Otherwise, no sound will be heard from the headphones. Connecting Microphone The Jumper JP1 may not be available on certain models of Live! Drive IR. There are two types of headphones which you can connect to the Live! Drive IR: ❑ Home audio or professional audio headphones, which are usually fitted with a ¼" stereo plug. ❑ Personal stereo headphones, which are usually fitted with a 3.5mm stereo plug, such as those used for portable audio players. There are two types of microphone which you can connect to the Live! Drive IR: ❑ Dynamic microphone, which is usually fitted with a ¼" stereo plug, such as those used in vocal performances. ❑ Condenser microphone, which is usually fitted with a 3.5mm stereo plug, such as the microphone bundled with Creative audio products. By default, Live! Drive IR is set for use with a condenser microphone. To use a dynamic microphone, you must place the shunt (jumper cap) onto Jumper JP1 on the Live! Drive IR. See Figure 4 on page 8 for the location of Jumper JP1 on the Live! Drive IR. Shunt Shunt The shunt for Jumper JP1 can be found together with the packet of screws provided. To use a dynamic microphone, place the shunt onto Jumper JP1. Jumper JP1 To use a condenser microphone, remove the shunt from Jumper JP1 (default setting). Jumper JP1 Figure 2: Microphone jumper settings. Live! Drive IR Quick Start SB0010 5 Adjusting Headphones Volume and Microphone Gain If your headphones and microphone are attached to the Live! Drive IR, the headphones volume and microphone gain can be adjusted in two ways. Using the Live! Drive IR Control Knobs On the front panel of the Live! Drive IR, turn the respective control knob: ❑ Counter-clockwise to decrease the headphones volume or microphone gain. ❑ Clockwise to increase the headphones volume or microphone gain. Using Creative Surround Mixer To adjust the headphones volume: 1. Click Start -> Programs -> Creative -> Sound Blaster Live! -> Surround Mixer. 2. On the Mixer deck (lower portion of Surround Mixer), if the button below the VOL slider is not highlighted, click it to unmute the output sound. 3. Adjust the VOL slider. It is recommended that you set the headphones volume level and microphone gain level to 75% in Surround Mixer, and use the control knobs on the Live! Drive IR to make further adjustments. Even if you turn the control knob on the Live! Drive IR to the maximum, your headphones will have no sound if you set the headphones volume level to 0% or mute it in Surround Mixer. The same applies for your microphone. 6 Live! Drive IR Quick Start SB0010 To adjust the microphone gain: 1. Click Start -> Programs -> Creative -> Sound Blaster Live! -> Surround Mixer. 2. On the Mixer deck (lower portion of Surround Mixer), click any of the audio input source icon, and then select the Line In 2/Microphone 2 icon. 3.
