USB Sound card 7.1 for bass shakers


An inexpensive USB sound card easy to integrate that can handle up to 8 bass shakers ! Available on Aliexpress from 25€.

Using the sound outputs of your motherboard is great, but it can mean pulling a lot of cables from your computer to the simulator.

This external sound card connects via USB and allows to manage up to 8 bass shakers! It is based on the CM6206 chip made by CMedia, which can be found in many cases in this price range.


On my simulator, I was able to connect this card to my USB hub (on which the Simucube and the SRT box are connected) without creating any conflicts.


I put here the link to the CM6206LX-1.04(CR) driver which is the one I use and which allows to have the following interface (the software appears in the hidden icons when you plug the sound card):

I designed a bracket that allows the USB sound card to be mounted on any chassis (Thingiverse link):

By the way, you can check my sim racing simulator here.

I've been passionate about cars since I was a kid! I learned the multiple variations of the Skyline R34 through the Gran Tursimo series, until I discovered GTR2 at the wheel of a keyboard. A few years later, I plunged back into Sim Racing with a G27 which made me enter the DIY world. Always looking for an immersion out of reach in reality, I develop projects that I take care to make accessible to any 3D printer owner!
