1) Unfortunately Realtek drivers are notoriously bad .. and even more
unfortunately they don't appear to want to do anything about it.
2) The "GS" device should be working properly - it will be stereo only, but
you should hear sounds pan across the speakers. If you have the Windows
OpenAL SDK installed, can you try running the EFX10Show application to see
what happens. When it loads, select the "Generic Software" device, load a
mono wavefile and try setting it's 3D position to -1,0,0 (sound should play
from front-left speaker) and then 1,0,0 (sound should play from front-right

[Openal] Mono Output in
i'm trying to port our sound engine from pure DirectSound3D to OpenAl
(looking into future, Vista, etc).
While working on this, i got some problems:
1. Generic Hardware on Realtek Onboard... there are strange noises while
moving a sound source from left to right. Sounds like hefty doppler
problems. But i still read it in the mailing list: using Realtek onboard
solutions in hardware mode is not a very good idea.
2.The much bigger problem: To work around this Realtek stuff, i tried out
the "generic software" device. But using it, causes a "mono-like" downmix.
There is no positioning of sources anymore. All sounds are played centered.
With the "generic hardware" device, there was correct positioning, so the
c++ code should be ok...
Any idea or hint?
