No difference between Audio creation and Game Mode - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Doesn't sound like you have Game mode activated properly. You have Audio Creation set up, but not Game Mode.

I just followed this same guide and it did make a big difference for me. I agree with the other poster though that by far the biggest change will happen by simply turning cmss3d off.

One thing I differ on though is I could have sword it said to set it to 2.1 and not headphone mode. Maybe that's just b/c I use open back headphones though and supposedly the headphone mode shrinks the soundstage.

My problem is, if I use 2.1 instead of headphone~ audio doesn't "blend" properly.

Like if a helicopter is to my right, I will only hear it on my right headphone, until it's behind me, then I hear it on both. Then when it's on my left, I only hear it on my left side.

With Headphone enabled, it blends so that it's strong on one side, but still present (but occluded) on the other side. Blending the sound 'around' me, instead of cutting it off completely.

Hmm, but what does that have to do with my problem?

Also I think my Game mode is set up right, for headphones at least.

5.1 Surround enabled in playback devices
X-Fi CMSS-3D enabled with MacroFX and ElevationFilter on
EAX enabled and set to 0 db

Well if features in Game Mode aren't on, then obviously they wouldn't be affecting your sound output. If you have AC configured properly your sound should be bitmatched, thus not equalized and as natural to the source file as possible.

If you have 5.1 Surround in Playback devices, is that on even during AC mode?

Last I checked, CMSS-3D was supposed to have your sound set to Headphones.

5.1 Isn't on in AC mode, but as far as I can tell enabling or disabling 5.1 surround makes no difference if you have stereo headphones/speakers.

But I'm just wondering if I'm supposed to hear a difference between game mode with everything turned off, and AC mode.

Outside of it being locked to 48khz rather than 44khz, and not having bit-matched audio, no~ I don't think so. Should be pretty similar.
