The C-Media software is actually much more in-depth than I anticipated. The Main Settings tab allows you to select standard stereo or 7.1 virtual surround sound. If using 7.1 virtual, you can move each speaker around independently and actually hear the difference as you are doing it - very cool. In the Mixer tab, you can adjust volume for Wave, MIDI and CD Audio as well as the recording volume for mic and Wave. The Effect tab has many of the basic Environment audio effects that are standard (and pretty useless) on most audio devices. I've never found a real use for anything other than Generic. The equalizer, however, is very useful to fine-tune the output to your exact liking. The Karaoke tab allows you to sing along with music playing. I played with this briefly but wasn't terribly amused. The final tab, Information, gives general information about the drivers, audio controller, etc.
