Question about Razer BARRACUDA AC-1GAMING SOUNDCARD 7.1 CHANNEL OUTPUT 24BIT AUDIO

1 Answer

Razer Barracuda sound problem (with temp. solution)

Heres the major problem:
The channels seem to have a mind of their own. If I open up a new sound producing app, the channels might be flipped, they might have sound coming out of one channel, they might be almost muted, or they might work fine, or a mixture of any of them. It seems to happen randomly as I open/close one sound app (sound forge seems to switch it up real good by just pausing/playing).

Heres a temporary solution:
Open up winamp and play a song. If your sound is jacked, go to the Barracuda control panel and switch headphone modes or S/PDIF output mode until it sounds right. Once it sounds right, either leave winamp playing or just pause/minimize. Any following sound applications will now sound correct. It seems that since Winamp has an active sound 'port' open to the card, anything else will use the same port or configuration... I've tried 3 different Barracudas in 3 different computer systems, and they all do the same thing.

Heres another minor problem:
The Barracuda control panel 'advanced' and 'modes' tabs seem to float on your screen after a resolution change. Only way to fix that is to open the Barracuda control panel and close it again.

I've sent several emails to Razer explaining the above mentioned, and here's my final response from Razer... "Technical support has no information on future product or driver releases. For any information regarding future products, please visit our website at http://www.razerzone.com."
That's after about 3 MONTHS of emailing them about this problem.

Looks like this card is left dead in the water and they have no further plans of releasing a driver for this card that isn't crippled. It's been well over a year since a new driver release for this card. The support from Razer is virtually non-existant, nor do they seem to really care about their customers.

It's just a shame that I bought this thing when it first came out. What a waste of $350. (both card and headphones) :((

The static noise may be caused by dust! To clean it out spray some Servisol video 40 into the volume control and move it up and down. If it goes away it was just dust.
The mic is another thing. The only thing I can think off ist that it's got switched off somehow on your laptop. Or either the control panel slider for microphone input is set to low?

You can get Servisol from Radioshack USA or Maplin UK or that type of shop.

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might...


You might encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:
  • Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that might be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update, or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • The selected sound device does not support Secure Audio Path (SAP). If you have multiple sound devices installed on your computer, try using a different one.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device (such as a sound card), and then try to play the file again. If you can't install a sound device in your computer, you might be able to resolve the problem by attaching USB-based headphones or USB-based speakers to your computer instead.

No sound in rear speakers


I figured this one out, although I might still send it back for an exchange. It turned out that the right rear speaker works just fine, however the jack seems to be flawed. When fully plugged in, the rear speaker input only picks up the left channel. If you pull it out just a little, say 1/8-1/4 the way out it will pick up both channels. Not a good solution but it works for the time being.

No sound


Are the lights on the side on? If not try the little switch on the side of the in line remote, also they need to be plugged into the soundcard&USB.
