Hello, here I am with a new question-:)

I created a simple event with two layers.
One layer contains a 5.1 ambient file, the other a number of incidental
short music pieces, in Stereo. They will be triggered randomly and are complementary to the ambient. In other words: the ambient keeps looping, sometimes a short theme is triggered.

By activating the surround speakers in the Event tab, I get the 5.1 ambient sounding right. But this forces the stereo music to all speakers as well, while I want the music coming just from the front speakers.

This probably means I should create a separate event for the Stereo music, and set all surround speakers to -60, correct?

Or is there a way to do this?

I also tried it as Interactive Music, where it works fine when auditioning
in FMod Designer. Ambient sounds 5.1, Music is stereo.
But when I build it and play it in FMod Music player, I hear no surround.
Am I correct in assuming Music Player not supporting surround files?

Ah… I meant this time to keep it short, seems it became another lengthy
mail again…

Big thanks in advance!

Check out the Surround Pan effect.

IIRC, the surround pan effect will mix a stereo sound down to mono and then pan the mono signal to a specific point in the surround field. Probably not the desired result in this case.
