I have just connected an external SB Live! that I purchased via ebay and must admit I was initially very worried by its response (first graph) when I made the cal file.

I disconnected all cables and blew out the connection jacks with a little compressed air (a good hard puff would probably be just as good as long as you dont spit in the jacks!) and then inserted and removed an old jack plug a few times to clear any solid debris that might have stuck to the surfaces.

I then did a second cal file (second graph) and got what looks like a nice response!


Hopefully this might help someone else who is getting a strange sound card response :T

Yeah, those 3.5mm jacks get very dusty in the back of a computer. In addition to the fact that they start out as probably one of the worst connectors ever made.....
