Mic boost in SB Titanium Fatal1ty Pro Series?

I have the PCIe SB X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro Series, in winXP SP2.
The problem is that I can find anywhere how to do mic boost. I search over the net, seeing many reporting the same problem.

Mic boosting is important when playing games and you want your voice not to be lost inside the sounds of the game. By default the creative console launcer can give until 6 DB. But there should give more till 40dB in example. My default on-motherboard soundcard (realtek) had mic boost that was giving +20DB.

The PCIe SB X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro Series which costs much more money (and is professional) doesn't have such a feature?.. If not...

Is there any other free software to increase the mic boost?

Will there be any update that will increse the mic max amplification from +6DB to (why not) +40db?, or give at least the good old known +20db mic boost?

Is there any way to add mic-boost through registry of winXP or anything else?

    In BF2, there is a button to "boost" the mic. You can click it, but when you save the settings and go back, it's unchecked again. The +20 db boost in the windows sounds setting for the voice/mic does the same thing. It seemed to start doing this after I reinstalled my Creative sound Audigy zs 2 drivers a month or so ago. I had to do this because my sound settings were all jacked up, echos and other special effects would not turn off.

Is my Soundcards THX True studio pro compatible?


Hello you can find the info here:

http://us.store.creative.com/Creative-Sound-Blaster-XFi-Titanium-PCI/M/B001E25KDK.htm

As far as i can see it only have 5.1 surround sound.
And no thx certification.
A THX certified card is more expencive.
The games you play, must also have the thx logo, and must be encoded with the thx sound system.
A thx system is 7,1, and the speakers must also have the certification.

Here are the gigabyte homepage:

I can't configure or access my flexijack on Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro Series Sound Card


well the ports on the card could be shot and the card might have been installed by a person with a static charge built on thier hands without them knowing, which can cause the card's electronics to fry and be ALMOST completely disabled. try using a different mic or taking the card out and re-installing it.
