NZ Gamer: Sound Blaster. The name used to be synonymous with gaming on the PC. Hell, if you didn’t have a Sound Blaster you had an Adlib sound card at best, or at worst - nothing at all. But times, they change; these days, sound hardware is built right into the motherboard and the difference between the quality of that or an expensive, optional add-in card is damn near inaudible to most gamers. It’s no great surprise, then, that Creative (the people behind Sound Blaster) are branching out into other sound-related hardware.
