And again I point to the quote from Dolby:
Dolby® Surround is the consumer version of the original Dolby multichannel analog film sound format (Dolby analog and Dolby SR [Spectral Recording]). When a Dolby Surround soundtrack is produced, four channels of audio information—Left, Center, Right, and Mono surround—are matrix-encoded onto two audio tracks. These two tracks are then carried on stereo program sources such as videotapes and TV broadcasts into the home, where they can be decoded by Dolby Pro Logic® to recreate the original four-channel surround sound experience.

so the n64 supports dobly and dobly is 4 channels but the emulator doesn't support it correct?

I think the emulator supports it, since tests on my home 5.1 system seem to work. I remember a thread on Emutalk about this, but I can't find it because the website is down.

cool I have a sound blaster and 5.1 speakers how do I set this up?

the soundblaster automatically forces CMSS, its only on newer models where there are actual options for it.

nope, you need to be using a plugin which uses hardware mixing.

Most N64 games do have Surround Sound in their option menu, i am not sure if the sound plugin take advantage of this.

Dsound 1.6, no
Dsound 1.7, possible.

Azimer audio is the other one that can.

Because the RSP plugin provides a low level emulated audio output, shouldn't the audio output be exactly like an N64?

squall_leonhart 17th June 2009 05:12 PM

the rsp might, but the sound plugin doesn't, software mixing does not incorporate the required audio stream.
