Hey Mixter,
So, I tried what you asked, The PS4 version of Call of Duty ghost is kinda weird, you dont get voices out of the center channel when it is loading the cutscenes when your jumping back in to a game, the audio is sent to the front left and front right speakers, However a helicopter was on screen and I heard that though the center channel, weird. However, when your playing in-game the center channel is active and the game supports full 7.1 audio. Now, as far as, the Xbox One version it supports center channel voices in the cutscenes before you jump back in-game. I will do further testing when I get back home. Also for those who want to know the PS4 version is the one I'd recommend the difference between the two are there and very apparent if I had to quantify the difference it would be like watching a movie on netflix in HD versus a blu-ray copy of the same movie running side by side. The 1080p of the PS4 version puts it above the Xbox One's version running at 720p. Hope I helped smile.gif

Guys, what's more likely: that game developers suddenly forgot there was a center speaker, or that Sony rushed the PS4 and there are some bugs? We are just the beta testers rolleyes.gif Aside from the audio issues, I am still having a blast with it.

Exactly !
post #38 of 88
well just coming back to update with further impressions, the Xbox One was set to stereo when I did the first audio test now that I set it too 7.1 uncompressed the voices come out of the front left and front right speakers exactly as the PS4 in the cutscenes. This is a weird choice by Actvisioon and Infinity Ward but as far as audio the experiences are indentical on both platforms. I even tried switch between the PS4 different audio modes they all seperated the voices to the front left & right speakers, however I do stress again that the center channel does work once your in game if a character talks or an explosionos goes off in front of you the audio comes out of the center speaker.

Just want to add that on NFS I get audio out of the center on PCM only for dialog. Now just throwing this out as some food for thought, but with the speaker on the controller maybe they have some different audio mixing options in the Dev kit now? Mind you NFS suits not use that funny speaker however.

That's what resogun does...the voice comes out of the speaker on the controller.

sorrry i am confused.

 

is the center speaker works in the gameplay for call of duty and nba2k14 on xbox in dolby or dts without modify the sound with the amp?

 

that will tell us if the devs made it on purpose or not.

 

thanks.

post #42 of 88
So I did some testing this morning and learned what I believe aaron mentioned; game audio settings and movies settings are 100% separate, and Sony did a bad job of indicating that.

In the main menu, I'd advise setting to Linear PCM. This should take the game's audio track and reproduce it as designed (2.1, 5.1, 7.1 etc). I am under the impression that most games aren't going to be higher than 7.1 (could be wrong). In regards to movies, once it starts playing, press Options and you'll see the menu. Scroll to far right, select Settings and chose Audio Format, switch to Bitstream Direct and you should see the sources native default audio (DTSMA, THD etc).

Again rather bad job by Sony to explain this vs how it was on PS3

When you're actually playing Ghost like shooting and running around the levels the center speaker is active, no matter what sound mode you select( linear PCM, Dolby, or DTS). However in cutscenes( the movie parts of the game) the voice come out the front left & right speakers.

I can tell you that on NBA 2K14 for the Xbox One there is also no center channel sound -- the commentary just comes out the left and right channels. I have tried the different audio system settings (DTS & PCM) and both do not produce any center channel sound in NBA 2K14. For Fifa 14 the commentary does come out of the center channel. So from what it seems, it looks like there is a sound issue with the next gen version of NBA 2K14 on both systems. I hope this gets fixed in another patch, as it's extremely disappointing and totally unacceptable.

really?

 

its sound completely crazy but i believe you....

 

they need to fix it, anyway! voices are really too quiet with that, and still still cutting sound once in a while!

I have Ghosts on PS4 and can say that the center channel works but is not audio for that channel. When a person is talking the voice comes out of center channel no matter where the character is on the screen. Even if he's behind you. However, the center channel (on any shooter) should play the gun fire audio. On Ghosts and BF4, the sound of your weapon being fired, even the sound of your knife slicing through the air, comes from the left and right speaker and never from the center. This is not right as the center channel should display footsteps, your players voice, your gunfire, and anything else that happens directly in front of you. This is not the case with the PS4. I had Ghosts on the ps3 first and the audio was exactly how it should be. After upgrading to PS4 I noticed the huge difference in sound. I have all AAA titles from launch and Killzone, AC black flag, knack and bluray movies have the center channel playing the proper audio. Netflix, BF4, Ghosts, Resogun, and even the UI of PS4 have a messed up center channel. This must be a software and not a hardware issue. I have contacted sony today and they are shipping a new PS4 after I send mine back. They said they have never heard of this problem but were expediting a return box within 24 hours and should have my new unit by friday. That's pretty quick in my opinion. I tried a complete reinstall of all system software and still no change. I don't recall noticing the issue until 1.51 came out. Maybe a problem there. If you have any more info please share it.

I was having a problem when using headphones (optical connection) either through my receiver or PS4 gamepad - so it had to be the console. The center channel would be low or nonexistent. I then switched to HDMI audio and I'm getting the center channel on normal levels.

 

Just an FYI if this helps figure out the problem.

Ok guys, hope this discussion hasn't stopped yet but I'm having the same issues. I have my PS4 connected to my Sony STRDH-740, audio and video through HDMI to my HDTV. I have noticed on PS4 no audio commentary coming from my center channel, no Netflix, movies that are in 5.1 the commentary does come through the Center Channel, but movies that are not 5.1 the commentary wont' come from the center channel, but on my PS3 the commentary will come through my center channel speaker no matter if the movie is 5.1 or not. In NBA2K14 next gen commentary won't come from the center channel, but in Madden next gen commentary does??? So is there a setting or change I need to make on my reciever or PS4 to always have the commentary come from the center channel in 5.1, doesn't matter what game it is or movie I watch on Netflix? Also as far as Bluray movies, everything plays perfect, getting full 5.1 surround sound in DTS Master HD. Has there been a fix for this?

Still no fix. Sony hasn't even released a patch for a while now, and there are numerous things that need to be fixed. I set audio to "optical" in the main menu and use ProLogic II for games. That way, I get center channel sound. For movies, I switch it back to HDMI. I'm getting sick of switching back and forth all the time. mad.gif

No patch is needed since it isn't broken. Haven't we been over the whole "some games use the center channel, some don't" enough already to say it's not a system issue but a developer issue?

Yes, it's broken. There's a thread going over on the sony forum with hundreds of posts about all the audio issues they're having (not just this one).

Almost all games for PS3 had center channel audio. Why would developers suddenly change? Isn't it more likely it's because it's a new, buggy system? That's like saying some filmmakers decided to use the center channel, some didn't. Fat chance of that happening. It's called surround sound for a reason, and if you're going to make a game in surround sound, that includes the center.

If everything works for you, great. Consider yourself lucky because lots of people are having issues.

Maybe it has to do with the new audio chipsets?

Killzone: SF has excellent 7.1 surround sound and is exclusive for PS4.
Battlefield 4 has 4.1 surround sound and is also on Xbone.

Since the PS4 was brought to the market a bit too soon, perhaps only exclusive developers knew what the audio chipset was capable off.

My english is not good, but i hope i bring my point.

I've had issues with battlefield 4. Sometimes it's in 5.1 and sometimes in 7.1

Center speaker works for me on Need for Speed Rivals on my PS4. Not sure about other games. I'll try to get back with y'all.
post #56 of 88

Hi guys!I recently purchased a ps4.My problem is that i dont' know the exact settings to get sound from my home theater and not from the tv.I connect the home theater  with the tv via hdmi and tv with ps4 via hdmi.After that i dont know what to do.please help!!!!!!

post #57 of 88
So I'll try my third thread here.

I am trying to get my PS4 to output in TrueHD or HD Master Audio. I have the PS4 hooked directly to my Pioneer SC-1323-K using HDMI. I have gone through the steps of putting the OVERALL audio settings to output as PCM. and then have inserted a blu-ray and have set the internal audio output settings to Bistream(Direct) as every forum has stated.

Now on the Blu-Ray menu it says the audio format is DTS-HD Master Audio. But my receiver continues to show Dolby Digital on the front of it.

I'm not trying to be rude here, but I am sick of people telling me to keep it in PCM mode and you will get the same quality, because when I switch to bitstream(direct) in the onboard blu-Ray menus it would suggest I AM NOT getting HD Master Audio quality sound. I want to physically be able to see that the audio I am receiving is HD Master Audio or True HD.

If someone could please help that would be great!

You're sick of people telling you the truth? PCM is what you want. It's the same or can be better in some cases than Dolby TrueHD and DTS-MA. That is fact. Where ever you've been doing your research that has led you to come to the conclusions you have obviously knows nothing about audio. I'd take these guys and gals opinions on AVS 100% of the time over what I read on wikipedia.

Also, when you are setting the bitstream output, which option are you choosing? There is one for Dolby and one for DTS. Have you tried both? You are not giving us enough information.

post #59 of 88
does the movie your playing have a DTS master track? if yes, is there an audio selection on the main disc menu that you can go to to see if its in Dolby Digital by default and has to be changed?
post #60 of 88
I did experience some bug where it refused to directly bitstream DTS-MA, could be an issue with the new firmware. Except it defaulted to the global PCM setting, not DD. OTOH, it would bitstream DD 5.1 directly when I chose it in the movie menu. The BD playback is a mess on PS4 for sure.

Whether or not there's a bug in the PS4 has nothing to do with whether PCM is as good as the HD codecs. Don't get these two issues confused.
