    Do spatial audio do anything for games with stereo only sound?


    How does Dolby Atmos for Headphones and Windows Sonic treat games that output only stereo sound? Most articles say you need to feed the API's 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound but i can clearly hear both these technologies applying HRTF effects on stereo only games like "Escape from Tarkov".

    :)

    spatial sound

    Hi,

    Windows Sonic is Microsoft’s audio platform for more immersive audio. It includes integrated spatial sound on Windows, with support for both surround and elevation audio cues.

    We would like to more about your issue:

    • Were there changes made on your device prior to this issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    Looking forward to you prompt response.

    • In the context menu, click on Playback devices.
    • Select your playback device and then click on Properties.
    • Click on the Spatial sound tab.
    • Select the Spatial sound format you want to apply.
