G51 matrix problems...!?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
Yesterday I asked you what speakers I should get under $100; you guys suggested the X-540. Well today I decided I'll go somewhat full throttle with a better audio system and I got the Logitech G51.

The reason of this post is that my matrix mode acts weird. As we all know, the matrix mode is supposed to give you some sort of simulated surround so you get better sound/effects in music and movies. Well mines does just that; only that it focuses on these effects in such away that I can barely if at all hear voices. This happens only during movies, and in games when set on the gaming matrix. Music is fine with this.

What do you guys think the problem is? I suppose because of on board sound!? Although it seems pretty good ( I do have six ports (Realtek HD Audio)).

What do you guys think?

Thanks,
Alex

well here are my points:

A) you're on Vista x64 (its known for audio channel issues)
B) HD Realtek audio and all other soundcards with a matrix mode simply use a mathematical algorithm to extrapolate splice and seperate sounds and then split them onto seperate channels... in other words its all made up and its not supposed to be there. 5.1 was never meant for games and I can promise you that with me and a set of good stereo headphones, I'll find u before you find me...(I also have a pair of retired Turtle Beach Earforce HPA 2.0s with 5.1 and all that jazz, IMHO it was a waste of my money...)
