Hi Darin, sorry if this has already been asked and answered. But with the free gamer download what will that actually change in the terms of the game sound? Because i no with games like BF4 it comes with a headphones preset in audio settings will that mean it would override that and give a better surround sound or spatial awareness in game?
First just to be clear, the gaming/low latency version will not be free. It will be a free upgrade to existing customers who already own Out Of Your Head.
I am not a gamer, but I have listened to a lot of the existing virtual surround solutions out there. I also can't say for sure whether anyone will like it better or not than the other products available. But in my opinion, Out Of Your Head offers a very realistic reproduction of a real room with real speakers. But I've always said it's not for everyone, and all I ask is that they try it for themselves rather than rely on other people's ears.
For games, you would not enable any of their headphone or virtual surround effects. You would configure the game as if it were connected to an actual surround sound speaker system. Generally if there is audio configuration options in the game, you would set it to 5.1 or 7.1(if available) speakers, NOT headphones or virtual surround or Dolby Headphone, etc. You don't want to "double process" the audio with two virtual surround DSP effects.
I hope that makes sense.
Yes sorry free when you have the full version. But i guess it really will come down to what people like.. will this low latency version be another speaker type to choose from in that list or will the low latency just cover everything? Sorry if that is a bad question but I'm new to this audio stuff.
No problem. Good question...
The low latency version will have a lower latency engine which works with all the existing speaker presets.
