How to determine how many audio channels a PC game outputs...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if there is a program that determines the number of audio channels a PC game outputs, like whether it outputs 2.0 , 5.1 or 7.1 ...

 

I did some browsing and came across this web site which tells you the number of channels each video game in their list outputs : 

 

http://satsun.org/audio/

 

 

(1) I want to know how he tested the games in the list on that website.

(2) I wonder if there is a more comprehensive list elsewhere on the net.

(3) I want to know if there is an app that can be used to determine the number of channels a PC game output..

 

 

thanks

Read the box? Not trying to be snarky. Do game makers lie?

You can always email the game maker and ask them.

Curious why this is important. You can't change it.You're talking on PC correct?

This is important because when you want to use Dolby Headphone, you have to know how many channels the game is outputting...in consoles it is an standard i guess, all games are 5.1....on the PC it is a mess, we have 2/2.1/5/5.1/7/7.1

I see. Hope you find your answer. I switched to consoles a few years back for simplicity.
