Multi channel audio outputs from a laptop such as 5.1 or 7.1

is it possible to get multi channel audio outputs from a laptop such as 5.1 or 7.1 for watching Movies or television while using Windows media Center.

Ok so i order to help anyone who is interested.
The only ironic solution to this problem i found was to use a plugin called xto7 to convert the xml to the old fcp7 format.
i then imported this into premiere pro.
this was then able to export an OMF that when imported into logic 10 that was using the correct 6ch mono setting as separate tracks.
Insane but it works until Apple fixes the incorrect meta data import in FCPX that sets the xml export to the default import that is always surround.
this is the only way i was able to send stems with all the edit points and fades for the sound editor.
If you don't have premiere lying around you maybe able to do it with fcp7 too we just didn't have it in this studio.
Fingers crossed Apple fixes the fcpx xml export.

  • Multi channel audio output

    i am trying to output a wav file from a avi file.
    this file has multi channel audio, in this case 4 channels, though when outputting the audio by
    After Effets, mono or stereo is the only available choice.
    In this case, which channel will be extracted from the avi file?

    I'm 99% sure that only the first 2 channels will be imported. I've seen some weirdness where multichannel audio has been bounced to a stereo pair on import causing a jump in levels. Your best bet is to use Soundbooth (or Premiere) or an audio/editing app to do the conversion.

  • How could a down-mix APOs receiving multi-channel audio data from the application

    Hello,
        Now I am integrating my DSP algorithm to the APO whichs convert to 7.1 input to stereo output(we call it virtualization), but the endpoint just supports stereo input. My first question is can my APOs receiving a 7.1 input data from
    application when the endpoint only supporting stereo input. The second question is if the scheme is feasible and what should I do.
    Thanks

  • No multi-channel audio from DVD Player or Quicktime?

    I have the A52Codec 1.7.6 installed. The codec preferences are set to output multi-channel audio. I have my Audio MIDI setup speaker configuration setup for multi-channel audio and the speaker assignment tests are all perfect. VLC plays back files with AC-3 soundtracks in perfect 5.1 multi-channel sound. Final Cut plays multi-channel audio properly as well.
    When I watch a DVD, it is decoded to stereo. The dialog on 5.1 always comes from the left and right speakers and never from the center channel. It doesn't matter whether I remove the A52Codec and try again the result is aways the same, 5.1 audio in Quicktime and DVD Payer gets decoded to stereo. It is not that extra channels are missing, if that were true I'd get no dialog at all.
    What do I have to do to make the DVD and Quicktime multi-channel audio decode as multi-channel audio and not stereo.

    I'm not sure if this will resolve your issue or not, but have you configured it using /Utilities/Audi MIDI Setup ?

  • AAC and multi-channel audio

    Can AAC be used to encode multi-channel audio, such as DTS-HD Master Audio?
    DTS-HD Master Audio is an optional audio format in Blu-Ray. It uses lossless compression.
    There are other audio formats from Dolby Digital, for example, that are used to encode HD audio in Blu-Ray. Can AAC be used to encode those as well, without any loss of information?
    Is there any work in progress to make HD audio such as DTS-HD Master Audio available discretely on disc, like what the older DVD-Audio format made possible for 5.1 channel surround sound on disc?
    Thanks.

  • Multi Channel Audio Instrument [Kontakt 2]: Auxes not working?

    Hi,
    I've searched the forums and come up with several posts about using multi-channel audio instruments, but none seems to exactly address the issue I'm seeing (and being confused by). I'm trying to set up Native Instruments' Kontact 2 sampler in multi-channel mode in Logic Pro 7. I perform the following steps:
    1. On an available audio instrument object, I click the input drop-down, select Multi Channel -> AU Instruments -> Native Instruments -> Kontakt 2.
    2. When Kontakt 2 opens, I load, say, three different instruments.
    3. In Kontakt 2's Outpus area, I create three outputs, labelled "st. 1", "st. 2", "st. 3". I cable these to "Plugin Output 1" and "Plugin Output 2" for st.1, "Plugin Output 3" and "Plugin Output 4" for st.2, "Plugin Output 5" and "Plugin Output 6" for st.3.
    4. In Kontakt 2, I assign the output of instrument 1 to st. 1, the output of instrument 2 to st. 2 and the output of instrument 3 to st. 3.
    5. Back in Logic Pro, I create two new (stereo) audio objects and assign them to channels Aux 1 and Aux 2 (and name them accordingly).
    6. In my Aux1 object, I select its input drop-down and choose Instrument1 -> Kontakt2 3 & 4.
    7. In my Aux2 object, I select its input drop-down and choose Instrument1 -> Kontakt2 5 & 6.
    Okay, so basically I'm set up now, right? So to test this out, I set the MIDI receive channel of all of my instruments in Kontakt 2 to omni and click on the built-in keyboard in Kontakt 2. I can see the volume level indicators on all three instruments light up. I can also hear all three instruments coming out of my speakers. However, when I look at the environment page where I've created these objects, I find that they're all coming as a stereo sum from the original audio instrument object. The Aux1 and Aux2 objects are just sitting there doing nothing.
    What gives?

    Okay, I found the solution to this, and it's odd enough that I figured that I'd post it just in case anyone else ran into it.
    It turns out that the multi-channel thing does not work at all when you play Kontakt 2 from the built-in keyboard (in K2). Visually, K2 still shows all the audio going out on the corresponding channels, etc., but I guess it's summing it and outputting in stereo only when you do that. If you send it data from Logic, it works just fine. So I had this setup correctly all along.

  • Multi Channel Audio Setup

    I've been trying to follow various tutorials for setting up multi channel audio insruments and I always get stuck at the point where you select Output 3-4, 5-6 etc. from the Aux 1, 2. 3 etc. objects. I never have more than Output 1-2 to choose from. I usually use the built- in audio or sometimes a Lexicon Omega. Do I need another interface to accomplish this or am I doing something wrong. I've accomplished quite a lot of things with Logic, but this has been hanging me up for a year now. Any thoughts?
    Thanks,

    multi channel audio instrument doesn't require a special card or interface
    any interface with stereo output should work
    you need to make sure your audio instrument supports multi channel
    logic pro only has Ultrabeat and EXS24 as multi channel
    under the plug-ins choose multi channel instead of stereo or mono then choose what ever is under multi channel
    example BFD, RMX, KORG LEGACY and other 3rd parties that support Multi

  • Wanted: Multi-Channel Audio Interface for iMac & GB (USB)

    I am looking for an affordable multi-channel audio interface for my iMac for use with Garageband. My goal is to playback old songs from my old computer (Atari ST) through my Yamaha gear and record the audio into GB so I can mix it. (READ: Not interested in transferring MIDI.)
    My goal is to get at least 4 and ideally 6 channel/track recording in GB. I’m not sure if the multi-channel units I see, such as the Alesis MultiMix 4 or the Behringer Xenyx Q802USB send all channels to the Mac or if they mix it down to two channels first.
    I’d prefer to mix all the channels in GB rather than pre-mix it. Also, I’d prefer to have 1/4” jacks; XLR would be a nice bonus. USB; since Firewire is going away and Thunderbolt is too new.
    Any suggestions? I’m trying to keep this under $100. (Also, I know I can use multiple low-budget devices and aggregate them in Audio/Midi, but I do NOT want to go that route.)
    Thanks.

    As you imply, keeping it below $100 makes it tough.
    Generally only the two channel interfaces are close to $100.

  • Simultaneous audio output from Ipad and bluetooth ?

    Is it possible to have simultaneous audio output from IPAD and a bluetooth speaker? At present I can only get audio from the Bluetooth Speaker and nothing from the IPAD's audio out! My purpose is that my Mom will hold the IPAD to listen to her Audiobooks but my Dad who sits across the room and is hard of hearing needs a speaker close to him, so I need simultaneous audio from both devices.

The speaker output on the iPad is pretty limited and your mother will probably have a hard time hearing it. Get a BT speaker for both and the above device and they both can listen from whatever location they want (within 40 feet) and get better sound.

  • 4 channel audio output? (MacBook)

    I am looking to get 4 channels (2 sets of R and L) of audio output from my MacBook - I'm trying to work with DJ software to enable monitoring (listening to a track on a separate channel thru headphones w/o playing it through the main speakers). If I would hook up a USB audio interface, would this interface, along with the 1/8" headphone output, give me a total of four channels?

    It depends on the software you are using and the hardware you want to buy.
    You would need to set up an Aggregate device in Audio/MIDI manager (in the Utilities folder). Once the Aggregate is created you would then be able to select it in any software that fully supports Core Audio for I/O. The Aggregate device allows for all the inputs and outputs from different interfaces to appear as one single interface to the software.
    Some hardware comes with Core Audio drivers that won't allow Aggregate devices. Digidesign is the only one I have ran across yet, but I can't guarantee there aren't others.
    Also when you create an Aggregate device the different I/O could have different latencies, which could cause issues for you. If you don't know latency is the delay between when the audio is input or played back, and when it is actually heard coming out of the outputs. Firewire interfaces tend to have lower latency, and your software should have settings to adjust the latency as well.
    But yes, it is possible, although it takes a little bit of work.

  • This is a very simple question about multi-channel audio playback

    I have an mp4 file that i made and i made it 7.1 surround sound, and i'm pretty sure that this 7.1 surround sound works, as it can be played in VLC. i'm using netstream to load my files now. How do i make it so that flash can playback all 8-channels of sound? I suppose kglad would know the answer

    Flash doesn't support multi-channel audio (yet?)

  • How to building a multi-channels analog output task in visual c++ 6.0 (without Measurement Studio)?

    Hello!
     I have a PCI 6251 card, and using DAQmx C function to generate a wavwform. (single channel ).
    But, how to creating a multi-channels analog output task, and had a different frequence in each channels?
    Thanks.

    This is getting to be a common question!
    The answer is, you can't.
    If the rates have common factors, you can use a higher overall rate. The slower waveform will simply have extra points in it to make up for the higher update rate.

  • Multi-channel audio mapping and adjusting.

    Hello All,
    I am trying to understand the concept of multi-channel audio and the way premiere handles the files.
    I have an MXF file which contains 4 channels of audio.  I am able to get premiere to view all 4 channels with an adaptive track, however, how do I make adjustments to each track? 
    EX: Say I want to adjust one of the channels within that adaptive track, how would I do that.
    Former FCP user thanks you.

  • No audio output from the orange mini j

    Hi all,
    I am having problem with my Audigy 4.
    Hope you know what I mean, there are three 3.5mm mini jacks
    of three different colors: green, black, and orange.
    I have noticed that there are audio outputs from the green and black mini jacks only, while the orange mini jack seems to be not working at all.
    When I plugged an earphone line to the orange mini jack,
    I could hardly hear any sound from it.
    Any idea?Message Edited by kwfine on 07--2007:03 AM

    The orange jack is the center/subwoofer audio jack. If you're using a 5. speaker system. Make sure you have selected 5. speaker setting in the speaker setup software.
