BOD Audio system

Postby matas55 » Fri Mar 21, 2014 8:17 pm

Hello :)
Does anyone know which sound system provides best sound quality and surround effect?

The only ones that work for me are:
RAD Game Tools RSX 3D Audio
Miles Fast 2D Positional Audio
DirectSound3D 7+ Software - Pan and Volume
DirectSound3D Software Emulation

So I tested all that worked on gladiator map - "The castle of doom" using stereo Pioneer headphones.
I am not audio engineer but as I understand 3D audio has X, Y and Z axis. To me all audio settings seem to be 2D. As an example, I cannot know whether sounds come from above me, below me, or from the same level. So in that map I stand next to those stairs and I cant tell if lich is above me or not. Sometimes I can't tell from which side orc is coming.

I couldn't tell if there's any difference between all settings except for Miles Fast 2D. I think it sounds worst. It seems to have very few audio channels (few simultaneous sounds) and it almost mutes one speaker while the other is at full volume.

I think in theory Creative Labs EAX should provide best surround sound but if I select it game doesn't load past intro.

And what exactly does "Pan and Volume" do?

So does anyone feel any difference between different settings?

So did anyone figure out which setting provides best audio quality and overall experience?
