I am sorry. I checked again, and it only happens after I first used the EMU synth. And only a cold reboot seems to fix that issue. But the card does the same with the creative drivers so I think my card is partially broken. I didn’t notice before because I hit the reset button to quickly test with the default startup files. So unisound works perfect.
Great. Anyway, one more question... if you run Unisound again (a 2nd time) after the CQM left-channel issue, is it fixed?
I ask that because there is a known issue between most games/programs supporting AWE synth and AWE64 / late SB32/AWE32 cards. After using EMU8K synth in that games/progs, then, FM doesn't sound right (usually, it sounds with cuts/clicks or semi-garbled). That's because almost all of them are programmed for the first EMU8000 chip revision (present in early AWE32 and some SB32 cards). 2nd revision of the chip needs slightly different osc init values (that affects FM sound unfortunately). Unisound detects chip revision and the correct initialization is used.
