Windows 7: Swap left/right audio channels

Swap left/right audio channels

Hi there,

due to the layout of my new desk, I have to keep the speaker which outputs the left stereo channel on the right and the one that outputs the right channel on the left. As such, my sound is now inverted, which is especially annoying when playing games.

Does anyone know if there is a on-board solution or a tool to swap the audio channels?


PS: I tried to search for a solution first but most where like "just swap the speakers" which I cannot do due to insufficient cable lengths

Other than Buying a 3.5mm Jack headphone extender as far as i know it cant be done, But saying that in a Old game (UT2k4) in the settings and audio area there is a reverse stereo. So have a look at your games setting menu you never know it might be there.

this is the closest thing i could find for you software wise if you don't have a utility to do it... its a free to try thing but you might have to pay later... i think a better option would be extension cables but this is technically what you are asking for...
