    Sound Blaster X-Fi - Enabling Creative Multispeaker Surround (CMSS)

    The following information are abstracted from our Knowledgebase on CMSS. Please check the case relevant to your sound card below. You can also access the article on directly from the URL below.

    Knowledgebase article SID4788

    If you are listening to stereo content like MP3's or CD's and you would like the sound to be played over your surround sound speaker system, you can enable CMSS 3D on your X-Fi card. If you are playing computer games, the X-Fi's Virtual 3D via CMSS gives a highly realistic surround sound over headphones.

    It is important to remember that if you do wish to play a 5. encoded file like Dolby or DTS soundtracks, you will need to turn CMSS off. Otherwise you might not receive each discreet channel.
    Please select the mode: (More information about changing the Mode).
    Entertainment mode
    In Entertainment mode, select the 3D button.

    I don't have that option in my Creative Entertainment console, and product description says that this function is available for Creative SB X-FI Pro 5.1 USB.

    Hi Gerchan,

    CMSS 3D has been replaced by SBX Pro Studio's, SBX Surround in the X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro. You can check out this thread in another forum.

    If you want CMSS 3D you may have to uninstall your current driver and install the older driver for X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro.
    You can download the older version of the driver here.

    Sorry about that Gerchan, I didn't know that the new X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro can't work with the old driver. Maybe the firmware is different that causes the device to not work with the old driver.
