Soundblaster Z se heavy bass

I recently installed Manjaro and noticed that my soundblaster z se has extremely high bass levels.

Does anyone have a solution for fixing that?

Hi @flixco and welcome to the Manjaro community.

I do not have a solution to your apparent issue, however, I can point you to a few resources that will help you to detail your problem so that others can help more effectively.

As a new user, please take some time to familiarise yourself with Forum requirements; in particular, the many ways to use the forum to your benefit. To that end, some or all these links will be invaluable:

And last, but not least, the Stable Update Announcements, which you should check frequently for important update related information. Occasionally an issue might be directly related to a particular update; it’s always best to check those announcements.

I hope this helps. Cheers.

Check ALSA mixer settings in alsamixer
Use F6 to locate mixer controls for Creative card
and turn off X-Bass effect


Oh man thank you that fixed it
