Does anybody know if there are any APIs out there (open source) that support 5.1 audio?
We have some wicked audio equipment here and its not being used to its full potential because all the VR presentations that we show here have no audio. The audio (which is usually just a narrator or the sound of the wind blowing) is played separately on a dvd player, which does use 5.1
The objective is to integrate audio with the applications so that its more interactive (context-sensitive narration, ambience, etc). From what i've read so far, seems like OpenAl only supports mono.
The presentations run on a Silicon and we use Performer, VrJuggler and VrNav.
Thank you for your info!

So you are saying that i can create a source in openal, attach a buffer with a mono sound file to it, and that if i move the listener so that the source lies behind and to the right, then the audience will hear the sound coming out mostly from the rear right channel?
How does OpenAl know that the silicon has a 5.1 soundcard?
