Information About Universal Audio Sound Card & Multimedia Drivers

Founded in 1958 by Bill Putnam Sr., the Universal Audio name has been synonymous with innovative recording products since its inception. A favorite engineer of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles and more, the late Bill Putnam Sr. was a passionate innovator who is widely regarding as the father of modern recording — with many of his legendary studio and equipment designs still in use today. Universal Audio was re-founded in 1999 by Bill's sons, James Putnam and Bill Putnam Jr., with two main goals: to faithfully reproduce classic analog recording equipment in the tradition of their father; and to design new digital recording tools in with the sound and spirit of vintage analog technology. With nearly 80 employees and more than a decade of rapid growth, Universal Audio (UA) is today headquartered near the Silicon Valley, in Scotts Valley, California — where our classic analog gear is still hand-built, one unit at a time.

A sound card or an audio card is an internal computer hardware component that generates input and output of audio signals generated by computer programs. Sound cards can also be external audio interfaces that use software to generate sound, as opposed to the classic ones that are using hardware inside the PC. Sound cards are used for providing audio signals for multimedia applications such as music players, music compositions, editing video or audio, presentations, video games etc.

Similar to video cards, sound cards can can also be integrated into the motherboard. But still, plug-in cards, can achieve higher quality than the integrated ones. These type of cards usually include more than one sound chip in order to support higher data rates and multiple parallel processes, especially for real-time generation of music and sound effects.

Most sound cards feature some basic components such as a line in connector for the input signal used for auxiliary sound sources that has higher voltage levels than a microphone. The microphone is the second external basic connector, which brings the audio signals from a microphone into the computer. Unlike the line in connector, the microphone connector is low-level input device. The input from the microphone can be used, by speech recognition or voice over IP applications.

Common Universal Audio Drivers Problems

Universal Audio hardware is not excluded from the errors and common file corruptions that any other hardware device or Windows component is susceptible to from day-to-day. As driver updates are developed, yours soon becomes out-of-date, and as errors occur and files are lost, your driver may become missing or corrupted. Sometimes an installation process simply goes wrong or an update is applied incorrectly. Whatever the cause, it’s no longer working and it needs to be fixed.

Common Causes of Failure...

- The driver is out-of-date
- The driver is missing or corrupt
- Update failure
- The device is damaged

Hopefully, your device is not damaged and all that needs to be done is to simply uninstall and remove all components of the old driver and replace it with a newer or working driver. This process, while not too terribly difficult, can be tedious and time consuming (especially if you have more than one device that is out-of-date).

If you’re going to manually find the drivers for your specific system, be sure to take the proper steps to identify the correct hardware on your Windows PC.
