Drivers Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS and RM 1500 for Windows 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 SP1 / Vista SP2 / XP SP3 - x86/x64

Creative has always been one of the best sound cards manufacturers, now the sound chip is almost always integrated on the motherboard, but those who want a good dedicated sound card can only take a Creative; Unfortunately, Creative has messed, or rather did not guarantee support for new versions of Windows to a number of its products.

Who, for example, has a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy ZS 2 Platinum, the model with the front receiver and the RM 1500, will have difficulty to best use all of its features on Windows 7 x64; Please note, the sound card will work but all add-ons such as the remote control, will not work and this is because there are not updated drivers.

Despite mom Creative has stopped supporting some time Audigy series cards are available the new drivers for the latest Windows OS, the drivers are not official but they use only original software Creative and they have been packaged by active users on the official forum Creative.

These drivers are compatible with all cards series:

  • Audigy
  • Audigy 2
  • Audigy 2 ZS
  • Audigy 4

and they can be used on  version at 32 bit and 64 bit of 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 SP1 / Vista SP2 / XP SP3.
