Tried googling and looking over the forums however I can't seem to find an answer/solution.
I have a 5.1 speaker setup (5 speakers + a sub) however spotify sounds only use 2 speakers + the sub. This is natural for most audio files, however I was wondering if there was a way of converting it to 5.1.
I usually use a program called Foobar which converts mp3 files into 5.1 when you play them, making sound come out of all speakers, however there is no option for this within spotify.
Has anyone found a solution to this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think i found the solution to the problem wherre "speaker fill" does not help.
you can force the spotify app to ignore it's own audio settings by adding "--disable-audio-output-resampler" to the shortcut path"
go to the properties of your shortcut of spotify (on win 8, you can find your shortcut in C:\Users\[yourname]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs)
add quotationmarks (") at the begin and the end of the path than ad a space and "--disable-audio-output-resampler"
apply and exit.
this should, in combination with speakerfill, enable all of your speakers by some version of virtual surround.
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.
I have found a fix for mine!
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)
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!!
