is it possible to play a 3d sound in software mode with only one set of stereo speakers? In most computer games i can hear sound from behind, because they sounds diverent. A sound behind the listener has less bass frequenze, it has a low pass filter.
For example when i play Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter on a XBox 360, i can hear sound from behind, even i have only two speakers.
I try the example Virtual Voices, set the NUMCHANNELS to 1. The sound was created with "FMOD_SOFTWARE | FMOD_3D | FMOD_LOOP_NORMAL". When i listen to the sound direct in front and direct behind, the sounds are the same. The only different i can listend is, when i fade the sound from left to right.
Is there maybe a virtual sound driver, that can simulate 3d sound on headphones?

I thought I will resurface already asked question rather than popping one of my own.
I am a little curious of how does FMOD implements directionality into its API and I am not even thinking of "better than HRTF" technology. Is it just time delay and low pass filters if the source is towards your back. Any pointers?

There is no time delay or anything it is just panning. We are going to introduce a lowpass filter (same filter as occlusion_lowpass flags uses) to do a bit of dulling of the sound when it is behind you, but thats about all for now. ITD (Inter-Aural Time Delay) may come in the future.
