I’m using the 7.1 speakermode for an eight directional speaker setup.

What I’ve done is use system->setSpeakerPosition to aim each of my channels in the right direction for the speakers and I’m getting the correct directional output for 3d sounds, the only issue I’m having is with the speaker on channel FMOD_SPEAKER_LOW_FREQUENCY.

It seems to still be getting a signal as if it was being used as a sub woofer channel. For example, when I position a sound directly on top of the listener, all the speakers get an equal amount of output except for the one on FMOD_SPEAKER_LOW_FREQUENCY, which gets significantly more output.

Could there be something I’m assigning wrong to cause this, or is there something specific to the FMOD_SPEAKERMODE_7POINT1 that mixes sound from other channels to that channel automatically?

Argh! My apologies . . . my question was actually for FMOD Ex. I posted it in the wrong forum accidentally. Is there any chance a moderator could move this topic to the FMOD Ex forum?

If you are right in the middle, each speaker gets
1.4142135623730950488016887242097f / numspeakers;

except for the lfe which gets whatever you have specified in setSpeakerMix.

So, if I’ve set the speaker position of the FMOD_SPEAKER_LOW_FREQUENCY speaker to be a directional speaker, say i use:

system->setSpeakerPosition(FMOD_SPEAKER_LOW_FREQUENCY, 1.0f, 1.0f)

Will I be able to use that speaker channel as a normal speaker at that location? Or will it always take only what is specified in setSpeakerMix?

My aim here is to use 8 identical speakers in specific positions and not have the speaker on the channel FMOD_SPEAKER_LOW_FREQUENCY be treated as a different type of speaker.

LFE is not directional, so no. It is treated as 2d.
