Sound APIs

Recommended Posts

What is the current state of play with sound APIs? After Creative swallowed up Aureal (boo), is A3D dead? Is the new EAX incorporating the old A3D effects? Is there a successor to EAX or anything... How much of these features are supported in DirectSound? Any knowledge gratefully received.

Hi,

Unfortunatly, I don't know anything about A3D. But EAX is supported in DirectSound. You can get the EAX SDK at http://developer.creative.com/ . There is a manual included that shows you how to use EAX in your DirectSound applications. I haven't used it yet, but I will try to add it to my sound engine which I'm working on. It seems as if it's not that difficult to use.

I hope I could help you a bit.
