I so remember when Turtle Beach was the shiznit. I updated the INF files on the drivers so that the use the Vista installation method for multi-function devices. There is a website somewhere on the net, which attempted to modify Aurel drivers for XP to work with hardware acceleration. I do have an Aureal Vortex 1 AU One would think that Vista support of this ancient audio chipset would be a pipe dream, no? You now have basic sound support in bit Vista. The 2shared link has somehow turned into virus clickbait, and I’ve gotten many, many requests over the past few months to repost.

I updated the INF files on the drivers so that the use the Vista installation method for multi-function devices. Near vortec end of Aureal’s existence, they released a Vortex Advantage budget sound card aimed at systems integrators, which ran on the Vortex AU chipset  [ dead link ]. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. You now have bortex sound support in bit Vista. Vista is out of the question unfortunately, as it eats a lot of resources.

This may be because these drivers were BETA drivers for Windows XP made by some of the developers from Aureal, and I would like to switch over to using the earlier official version aueral the drivers that Microsoft bundled with XP as it should be more reliable. So I’ve move the link over to Dropbox instead. Maybe some installation instructions? I’m glad I have sound, even if I can’t seem to find a way to make the Equalizer work.
It’s really cool to be able to use the card again.
Quick but serious question: I zureal to say thank you. Thank you so much for this! The Vortex 2 chipset won numerous industry awards, and was used among other places in the Diamond Monster Sound MX, which achieved near-cult status with audiophiles and gamers for the high quality of its positional audio.
There is a website somewhere on the net, which attempted to modify Wu8830 drivers for XP to work with hardware acceleration. Anyone know what my problem is? They aren’t, however i recently found some MS drivers for Aureal Vortex 1,2 and 3. Sorry, my English is poor.
That way it might be really easy to find it via search engines.
Views Read Edit View history. Thanks alot for the driversthey work well on xp sp2 and on vista 32bits but I’m having some problems on Win7 sound is kinda chunkyseems if I disable Hardware Acceleration it works better. Ak8830 can hardly believe they’d rip out the built in drivers for such a popular audio chip. Thank you VERY much! But now I downloaded your modified drivers and will give another try for win7. They might have been on driverguide.
I’ve removed the MegaUpload mirror link.
Keep up the great work mate! The 2shared link has somehow turned into virus clickbait, and I’ve gotten many, many requests over the past few months to repost. Again, Uber Thanks for doing this. It’s still totally awesome that you did this. Areal url you gave doesn’t work anu more: The Windows driver verifier reported that this driver is attempting to free memory it has already released, which is causing problems for the kernel memory allocator.
I was testing win7 on the weekend for the second time now and was pissed again whan the latest build did not recognize my voetex had to change back to integrated audio chipset which sounds a lot lamer and a lot noisier.
Unfortunately, the way that that Aureal implemented the hardware, the sound card looks like a “multifunction device” instead of a straight-up sound device. The result is here: On a side note, I guess the same. After I installed the drivers, I restarted my computer, but alas, still no sound.
