AC97 Multichannel Playback
« on: 20 Feb '03 - 19:36 »
Hello, masters!

I have VIA vt1616 audiocodec (AC'97). They say that this soundcard can work in multichannel mode (Front L/R, Rear L/R, Center & Subwoofer).

In standart mixer application, there are same named sections with the volume and balance scrollers.

When I start any DVD player application I can see that the sound is coming from all 6 channels. But when I try to use BASS to play 6 channel audio, I can't initialize more than one channel, and BASS plays my sound only to standart WAVE-out device.

How can I play different sounds (say 6 mono wave-files) on FRONT L/R, REAR L/R, Center & Subwoofer channels ?

The ability to place channels on specific speakers is coming in 1.8 :)
