Sound: Dolby 2.1 or 5.1 ?
« on: January 18, 2017, 10:33:18 AM »
hi .
Whats your pc/mac/console  sound capabilities ? 2.1 ?

should it be worth to re-code the whole lot to 5.1  ? It *should* sound better, more surrounding sound (specially for the virtual cockpits, etc) .  On the other hand , It will be just a notch slower , and Im not sure how many of the intended users have a 5.1 rig at home.

ideas?

What does the Rift use?  I would assume it is 2.1.  I say release it with 2.1 then when you get time put the 5.1 in a patch/update.

in all fairness , for the Rift I  prefer no headphones  at all , and having the 5.1  create the 3D sound effect . It sounds way more inmersive not to have the headphones on .

anyway , I .ll get the 2.1 running ( easier ) , and then aim for 5.1
