OS: MS Windows 7 Ultimate |
Interface: Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP
I’m having an issue where I want to hear 5.1 surround from the editor (or ‘Play’ window) within Unity, but I totally can’t…
My playback device is set for my focusrite saffire pro, outputting 5.1 to my 5.1 setup. I changed the settings in Unity so that it should be playing back 5.1, but I still only hear stereo. The audio assets are quad, so I should be hearing the rears.
My PC also has headphone jacks. One for C/LFE, one for L/R, and one for Ls/Rs. I plugged in headphones into these and changed my playback device to this 'Speakers: 2-High Definition Audio Device" device…
And lo and behold: I had surround.
So my concern is: Can Unity work with changing the system’s playback device to something not directly linked to the sound card?
Thanks for your input!
