Hi Shane,

I am sorry to say, but Creative cards are usually not the best choice for sound- and music production, even not now when some of their cards support ASIO 2.0. Have you checked that you are using the ASIO drivers instead of for example the Windows drivers?

It seems from your words that you had it running well before right?
