VX222e-S is a linear PCM sound card designed to be used through the following standard driver interfaces: WASAPI, DirectSound, ASIO. 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 on-board features: PCM audio mixing, cross-fades, timed-based and event-based functions. VX222e-S card does not feature on-board support of MPEG audio and time-scaling.
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 card parameters (clock, synchro, input type selection, gains, vu-meters, monitoring, input SRC, EQ)
Supported operating systems
- Windows 7, 8, 10, 2003/2008/2012/2016 Server, 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
No support is provided for older Windows OS. Recent versions of cards are not supported for OS older than Windows Seven.
Important installation notes
> Hardware change (May 2021)
Due to the obsolescence of some components used on all the Digigram stereo PCI Express sound cards, we have made some hardware modifications on these cards. These modifications guarantee the same features, the same specifications, and the same performances. In this regard, the name and the product reference remain unchanged. The ID for the technical status of the card is increased. It is visible on the sticker on the back of the card (IS=).
|Card model||Technical status index (IS) before the modification||Technical status index (IS) after the modification|
For more information about this new hardware modification, please click here.
It is necessary to install HR Runtime version 1.80c001 to be able to support these modifications under Windows. Note that this new HR Runtime is backward compatible with the previous card’s revision.
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.
