Staff review

Thank you for your submission.

Vista/Windows 7 plug-in to make the sound all much better.


Wow... This plugin is ridiculous. Exactly what I was looking for to play 5.1 audio. Puts you in the middle of the sound. - September 12, 2010 by blyrrh

This saved my day, thank you very much. - May 22, 2010 by [email protected]

nice!, works great! - April 12, 2010 by [email protected]

This thing is the best! Now I can really hear my music from all 5 speakers real loud and lots of bass! :D Wish it worked for my whole computer and not just Winamp. - February 5, 2010 by BliNDFury1234567

work great for me,except when I put slider to 0 in winamp,side speakers are still playing.. - January 31, 2010 by [email protected]

Can move all sliders, but they have no effect on sound. It does however any how seem to give more bass then the standard direct output plug-in... Soundblaster Audigy 2 platinum on Windows 7 - January 26, 2010 by [email protected]

Works on 4 out of 5 speakers on W7 x64.Would give it 5 starts it the rear right speaker worked on W7 x64. - November 24, 2009 by izzy

Confirmed that my rear right speaker does not work in Windows 7 using this plugin, and I get many errors saying that Winamp cannot play the MP3 format, until I uninstall this plugin. Please fix! - October 25, 2009 by Rob

Nice one - This also works with Windows Seven... But I noticed two things: My rear speakers appear as side speakers... and the right rear speaker doesn't play sound. It's not a bug in the sound file or in the sound system, I tested that. I use a Terratec Aureon 5.1 MK II with a Logitech X-540. Would be great if you checked that for errors in your plugin... - October 8, 2009 by christian.gredig

Awesome - Works fine with Windows 7 and a Realtek onboard sound cardThanks :) - September 22, 2009 by nerazul

It's perfect! - Thanks to this plug-in I can listen to music using all my 5.1 speakers. Works with Windows 7 and now there's no awful sound like when Speaker Fill option was turned on.Thanks! - September 15, 2009 by herua_edhil

Luigi - Excelent!!!!! works in WINDOWS 7, great sound, principaly subwoofer. - August 14, 2009 by spid28

Meh - Winamp has stopped working.Winamp has stopped working.Winamp has stopped working.Winamp has stopped working.Winamp has stopped working.Winamp has stopped working.Pretty much everything makes it crash, with a few exeptions. - August 7, 2009 by Dennis Cheret

Thank you, this is amazing! - Pros: Works great, effective UI.Con: Will display "Format not supported" error if you try to use bitrates above 16-bit /48KHz. If you have a 24-bit / 192KHz card, this can be annoying, but not a show stopper. - May 23, 2009 by AMG

SUPER!!! - Thanks for this plugin!!! It works on Windows 7 too. That's the thing I've been waiting for!!! THANKS AGAIN!!! (Masz u mnie piwo) :))) - April 28, 2009 by hdc haRdCoRe

Very useful thing - I've tried to make output on all 4 channels in Windows 7.It really helped me. - March 27, 2009 by Eugene Kebikov

Error - After install and config, get error: VL Sound 5.1 error. The format is not supported. - February 14, 2009 by Cees Pijnappels

Thankyou - Works.Vista Home Prem. x64.But how do you get the damn sub to work with everything else? - January 23, 2009 by Rue Davies

Don't work! - When i try to play a song using this plugin i get a "The Format is Not Supported", wtf it's a mp3! Is there anything i am missing here? - January 11, 2009 by Jeremiah Thom

Best if not a bug - 1) It inverts the Side Left and Side Right channels (I have 5.1 system, integrated sound at motherboard Asus-M2N-VM-DH and running on Vista x64).But this is not very big problem for listening music. The main problem:Side Right speaker does not work at all (some small noise). I tested it with Vista test - and all is OK - all speakers works normal.One interesting thing - when I downloaded version, it was installed as Is there a difference? - November 15, 2008 by Valtar Warlock

Didn't work - Had a fairly hard time chasing it down for uninstall. - September 26, 2008 by Daniel Myatt

thanks - the only way i can use all speakers.i use newer version: - August 3, 2008 by nik jo

Exellent - Works in Vistax64 SP1 . Realtek HD integrated audio.This is THE plugin of the year, a must have download for your Winamp.Thank you Valera. Nazdarovije! :) - July 13, 2008 by Angelico Payne

Great work!! - I love this plugin, but (there's always a but) can you make it support 24-bit audio? A lot of people (including myself) have 24-bit sound cards and it's a shame listening to music in 16-bit. - June 29, 2008 by sorcerer lc

Finally! - Hey, first of all: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!(Sorry for all the caps, needed to scream that out very loud ;P)Well, everything works for me.Subwoofer volume control isn't an option for my system it never did the trick with my surround system, not even with good ol' XP audigy 2 drivers :PFinally I have something to replace/recreate Creative's CMSS Stereo Surround feature, which they left out in their vista drivers... - February 7, 2008 by Julian S
