Audio : Using the Surround Sound Mixer
Using the Surround Sound Mixer
Unlike a stereo stream that carries only two audio channels, Surround Sound has five separate audio channels encoded into one file which is delivered to five speakers and one sub-woofer.
The Surround Sound Mixer has all the controls to position sounds around the listener, outputting audio through the 5.1 configuration of multiple speakers. You can also use this mixer to adjust the volume for stereo files, making it sound as if the audio moves from one speaker to another.
