Staff review

Better Sound for Vista

OpenAL provides some enhancements for soundoutput under Windows Vista. The difference is most noticeable with highend cards and speakers.


Simple and effective - I needed a plugin that would allow stereo upmix to stereo surround (4.0) and this accomplished that goal. My onboard audio has very limited surround settings so I am unable to adjust the volume output from the rear speakers. This plugin does not allow that either. Still, it is an improvement. - October 14, 2009 by Michael Beutler

amazing - I am using Sennheiser headphones on a Dell XPS m1530 laptop with Windows 7 installed and this output plugin really enhanced my sound output a whole lot! More crystal clear sound and for sure higher range of tones I did not notice with the standard winamp direct output and standard vista 64x sigmatel driver. Now my ears itch again after 2 hours of progressive @ 320 bps :-) - September 24, 2009 by petralian

hardware output :D - finally being able to take advantage of my x-fi notebook expresscard. Excellent plugin, although not the newest version, 0.8.1 final is available on sourceforge - December 12, 2008 by ALEX Vercetti
