Until now, enjoying true surround sound on your PC carried a hefty price tag, not to mention the space requirements for a surround system. Ashampoo Soundstage Pro gives you professional-quality surround sound and all you need is a PC and a pair of regular headphones. The program processes your audio signals based on what they would sound like on a real-world surround system and transforms them into binaural sound that is then sent to your headphones. Sound formats like 5.1, 6.1 and 7.1 are fully supported and the program comes with ten different sound locations, created by professional sound artists and based on various high-end recording studios around the world. You have to hear it to believe it. Since tastes, and headphone models, differ, the program allows fine-tuning of several parameters, including frequency response curves for your headphones to help you make the most of your audio experience. Naturally, there are also settings tailored to gamers, that favor low latency and response times. You'll hear precisely where your opponents are! Though the overall quality of the surround effect depends on the surround information embedded in your audio, even stereo signals will sound markedly better and clearer when enhanced with the program.
