5.1 Individual Speaker Volume control?

  toon_mad 10:25 02 Nov 2008

Hi, ive just recently managed to setup my 5.1 Speakers. The problem is unless all the speakers are together, if say the rear speakers are actually behind me, i cant hear them. Is there a way to turn up each individual speaker in windows? Im using Vista Ultimate,

Thanks in advance

Hi, the ability to set individual volume controls should be in your Sound-card's Software. I have it in my software, but also have individual actual controls on the front of my woofer.

In my software, the controls are in the Surround Mixer>Advanced section.

I found a creative audio console, but that doesnt have anything there, will keep looking thanks. If i remember i installed drivers only off the disk, not the software. Maybe i should install the software, or if there is a download link?

What is your actual Sound-card? If you can give me full details, I will probably be able to point you to the download for the Software.

First click on Application (in small print, near top) - then click on Creative MediaSource 5 Player/Organiser.

Or, click on Auto Update (again in small print), this should 'see' your sound card and update the software.

Hmm, I should have done this earlier, might have saved you a bit of hassle - my apologies - but I have just had a look at my original sound card CD because I realised, belatedly, that the necessary Software is on that CD - on mine it is called MediaSource Go, yours might be slightly different.

no worries, thanks will find my cd out...

got it, it wasnt on MediaSource on mine but as the main installation, the program is called Audio Center, i can now control the individual speakers.

Thanks for the help technotiger :)
