I tried hooking up my AIW 7500 audio internally, but my cable does not fit (too big). It does however fit my sound blaster audio card. Is there a certain type of cable that works with the AIW7500?

Also- I have both a creative sound blaster audio card, but also an older turtle Beach Santa Cruz card. Which is better to use for this project? Both were mentioned as good cards in another thread.

There are two kinds of audio cables: 3-pin and 4-pin. You need 3-pin cables for internal wiring.
See this post: No sound on ATI All In Wonder capture?

The Turtle Beach Santa Cruz is usually the best choice, between those two cards.

Admin -

The plug on the AIW 7500 is 4 pin. Are you saying to only use 3 of the pins? The audio cable that I have (both ends are for 4 pins) will fit fine in both my Sound Blaster and Santa Cruz. Its the AIW that the "plug" is too big?

thanks,

Rappy

By the way - I currently have the AIW hooked up to the Soundblaster thru the "black cables" externally as per the link you provided. Ild like to do it internally (and swap out to the Santa Cruz).

Update- one more piece of the puzzle. Had a hard time finding the ATI internal audio cable. Only one vendor had it, but I was nervous ordering based on their horrible reviews. I stumbeled across someone selling them (not sure if it is an original, or he made them). Either way for $3.32 you can't beat it! And it works- well the plugs are the right size.

I'd like to verify the proper settings for the Santa Cruz audio card?

In the MAIN SETTINGS TAB:

Speaker mode- 4 speaker
versa jack- analog out
Record source- Aux
master volume - approx 50%

MIXER TAB:

Wave - on ( should I mute it?)
Synthesizer - on(should I mute?)
Aux - on @50%
cd player - on ( mute?)
Line in, mic, telephone all on mute

EFFECTS TAB:

Both effects are on mute

Any special setting for tabs synth, and other?

A picture is sometimes more helpful than words.

This is my Turtle Beach Santa Cruz ATI system, with audio settings in Windows XP.
I generally keep AUX muted when not capturing.

Mute anything unneeded -- that's the most important rule.

Master + Wav are always required. Never mute those. Never have audio more than about 60% loudness.
