If your wondering where it is exactly where you add "--disable-audio-output-resampler"

Its... Right click on the Spotify shortcut and click Properties

Then on that screen it shows

Start in

Shortcut key

Run

Comment

and all i did was add "--disable-audio-output-resampler" to the comment box and that worked :)

It's a little bit different now, its voice meeter Banana. New link, https://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/banana.htm

 

Same method, just looks a little different. Click A1, add your speakers, click where it says "Normal Mode" and change it to stereo repeat.

 

If you are having issues, make sure the VoiceMeeter Aux is the primary audio device.

Download Voicemeeter:

http://vb-audio.pagesperso-orange.fr/Voicemeeter/

then install it, and reboot your pc.

go to playback devices.

And set up the vooicemeter app as 7.1, but untip the side pairs if u have 5.1 . See photo

And just click next, next, finish.

 

Then setup your speaker in Voicemeeter. See photo

Now we need to let it start every bootup, so we need to put a shortcut in the startup map.

Goto Start (windows logo)

All programms

Go to the Startup map, and right click than click on open.

Than go back to all programs, and find a map called VB Audio.

Open the map, also the voicemeeter app.

Copy the app called, Voicemeeter, in the Startup map that we just opend.

DONE! I hope it worked!!

U now can choose between banana and Voicemeeter. I myself find voicemeeter (normal one) a bit more user friendly. But if u want to record Ur voice with voice meeter, than banana is the best option for U. Thanks for bringing it up!

As kachunkachunk said,

"If you're using an X-Fi, just use CMSS 3D. The Soundblaster suite generally does a multi-channel re-matrix pretty well."  Remember to aslo tick off the option in spotify called "Hardware acceleration" ad the bottom of the advanced settings! U will get 5.0 working, but still no subwoofer will work with it.. so fur subwoofer use I still need voicemeeter. Maybe someone will get it working without voicemeeter and only the CMSS 3D.

*edit*

After setting my speakers from 7.1 in the creative menu to 5.1 i got my subwoofer working, even on yotube it works now.

A little bit late xb, but thanks to u mate!!! Got it working by settinf my speakers back to 5.1, and turning off hardware acceleration in spotify.

Hardware acceleration shouldn't make a difference - it just relates to 3D-accelerated rendering for the GUI, via your GPU. Perhaps you can double-check? Maybe restarting Spotify between 7.1 -> 5.1 config changes was what made the difference?

 

But I'm still glad to hear things are working right for you!
