LAV Audio and Dolby Headphone
I have an Xonar DGX with Dolby Headphone. Dolby Headphone (virtualization) has a 5.1 mode and a 7.1 mode with 3 types of rooms. The 7.1 allows for each speaker to be moved in a 2d plane, which means setting direction and volume.
Can I use the 7.1 feature with a 6 channel source?
For playback MPC HC with LAV 0.74.1 is used. No mixing.
LAV has an option:
Convert Output to Standard Channel Layouts:
Converts all channel layouts to one of the "standard" layouts (5.1/6.1/7.1) by adding silent channels. This is required for sending the PCM over HDMI if not using another downstream mixer, for example when using WASAPI.
Would this help with using a 5.1 source with 7.1 Dolby Headphone?
