Windows 7: Quadraphonic Sound with Realtek Drivers

Quadraphonic Sound with Realtek Drivers

I am trying to obtain quadraphonic sound using front and rear speakers attached to my motherboard. The four speakers work fine in the control panel, but I cannot get the rear speakers to work in any audio program. I want to get surround sound with separate audio files coming from each of the speakers, which is being driven by a multichannel program like Adobe Audition CS5.5, Audacity, or Reaper. I have installed Realtek Audio drivers which can address each channel separately, but I can't find a way of accessing these drivers in any of the software.

I don't think "you can get there from here" with what you apparently want to do.

Most audio players will only output stereo. If you have full fledged 5.1 (a 4 or 4.1 is not really supported anymore) you will get surround sound with SOME programs, but not all.

I have a recording studio (I use Sonar X3) with a Roland Octa-Capture recording interface unit. I can create surround sound (I know Sonar can do it but I don't know how) but I don't have enough analog line outputs to support that (it only has two for two channel/stereo.

But the bottom line, you are going to need more than the onboard RealTek audio chip to do what you want.

Maybe a recording forum such as Gearslutz would be more suited to trying to find a solution or what you need to do what you want.

My audio players will output four or eight or more channels. The question is whether they can address the speakers. I know it is possible with high-end interfaces, but I was hoping I could use the motherboard's built-in audio here.
