Looking for 5.1 music with those spiffy new Klipsches? (Or should I say Logitechs now that they have a great 5.1?) I know I was. For almost a year. And it was driving me crazy.
The other posts I saw all said something along the lines of "It's music, it's only supposed to be in two channels stoopid!". Well that's not my opinion. I bought these speakers for 6, not 2 channels.
Now, I have an Audigy on Windows XP (Gasp). I upgraded everything and it still didn't have center channel audio, except on DVDs and stuff that was 'supposed' to have more than 2 channels. This was ok, but I was getting just crazy. Here goes what I did:
Follow everything in this thread.
Get the A3d emulation here...
Or a direct link to the file:
Here's the key component...
An A3D audio mixer for Winamp 2! GOGOGO!
For those who feel like ultra configuring it, I am using a scheme as follows:
Master: 1.25 m, 0 degrees, 30 degrees, 1 gain, 1 equalization
Channel 1: 1.00 m, -90 degrees, 0 degrees, 1 gain, 1 equalization
Channel 2: 1.00 m, 90 degrees, 0 degrees, 1 gain, 1 equalization
Channel 3: 1.00 m, -135 degrees, 0 degrees, 1 gain, 1 equalization
Channel 4: 1.00 m, 135 degrees, 0 degrees, 1 gain, 1 equalization
This is making me happy. Quite happy. Hope it helps!
