Apple on the Sound Blaster Live! from Creative Labs
3:38 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A new article posted by Apple takes a quick look at the Sound Blaster Live! card from Creative Labs. The audio article reviews the main features of the SB Live, including the EAX/OpenAL enhancements about to be included in a number of games. Here's a quick clip:

Now that Sound Blaster is out for the Mac, gamers can finally take advantage of four-point surround sound, DSP processing and EAX/Open AL technology on their Power Macs.


Creative Labs bundled in Deus EX, the very first EAX-ready game available for the Mac. So you can start warming up for EAX surround-sound gaming.

Other major titles being released soon (such as Tomb Raider Chronicles and American McGee's Alice) will offer support the card out of the box. Patches for Unreal Tournament and Rune should be out soon as well. Head over now to check out the rest of the article. Also, be sure to read through IMG's review of the Sound Blaster Live! for more information.
