DISCONTINUED PRODUCT – END OF MAINTENANCE: June 2019
VX820HR is a linear PCM sound card designed to be used through the following standard driver interfaces: WDM kernel streaming, DirectSound, Wasapi, ASIO, and Alsa for Linux.
It can also be used with software applications based on Digigram proprietary Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) under Windows operating systems, so as to benefit from the available onboard features: PCM audio mixing, crossfades, timedbased and eventbased functions. VX820HR card does feature onboard support of MPEG audio and timescaling.
The “HR Runtime” package allows installing the following components:
- WDM directSound driver
- ASIO driver with its ASIO control panel (CPL)
- Legacy Wave MME driver
- Digigram Hardware Settings (DHS) application, which allows setting the cards paremeters (clock, synchro, input type selection, gains, vumeters, monitoring, input SRC, EQ)
Supported Windows flavours
XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10, 2003 Server, 2008 Server, 2012 Server, 32bit and 64bit versions.
Alsa driver included in the Linux kernel.
How can I adjust my VX/PCX audio levels
When the driver is installed, the DHS software (Digigram Hardware Settings" is installed. Just run that software to have access to the IN/OUT level adjustments.
How to select the AES input ?
In the DHS you have to set the clock to AES/EBU Sync to be able to select the AES input.
I am facing a BSOD when using my VX sound card
We face issue on HP computer with the DMA management. To avoid BSOD, you have to disable the DMA protection in the BIOS
My recent HP computer do not boot with a VX, PCX or LX-MADI sound card
We identified that some recent Hewlett-Packard computers (HP Z1 G6, HP ProDesk 400 G7, HP Elitedesk 800 G6, HP ProDesk 600 G6 Microtower PC, HP Z2 G8 Tower Workstation, HP ProLiant DL360, HP Proliant DL380) don't boot with VX, PCX and LX-MADI PCIe sound cards. This is due to problem on recent HP motherboard not compatible with the PCIe bridge used on the cards. This has been fixed by HP with a BIOS update available on support.hp.com./
If you encounter similar problems with other HP references, kindly have a check in the support.hp.com website for individual BIOS updates since there is no constant firmware available for all of these models.
Which Linux Distribution are supported for sound cards ?
LoLa soundcards and multichannels VX/PCX series are supported on every Linux distribution, as the ALSA driver is part of the kernel.
The stereo VX and PCX stereo cards have precompiled version for Debian, Ubunutu, CentOs, Fedora and OpenSuse based distributions. For the LX series the following distributions are supported : Ubuntu LTS / Debian LTS / CentOS 7.
For other Linux distributions, we propose a service for providing an adequate compiled and installable driver package. UAx and Cancun series will work on every linux distribution.
My sound card is not detected by Windows
Make sure that you downloaded the lasted driver on our website. Indeed, from time to time we have to make component update which require a new driver.
