Some Product HockingPosted: June 8, 2005
I just got a new Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS Platinum (whew! that's a mouthful, ain't it). It rocks.
So far my favorite feature is time scaling, where you can speed up or slow down a song without changing its pitch (i.e. no “chipmunk” effect). Also v.v – you can also change the pitch without changing the speed. It also has inputs and outputs up the wazoo, lots of software (including two older games and some music software), DVD Audio capabilities (which is nice, but useless, since there aren't really any DVD Audio discs out there…), front-panel headphone and microphone jacks with independent volume controls, and a remote control. Sweet! It goes for about $160-200 – I got it with a $50 mail-in rebate.
