Créé par Air (Jake Stine) sur la base du plugin SPU2 de GiGaHeRz (1.9 beta), il s’agit d’un plugin gérant le son dans les émulateurs de PS2 tel que PCSX2. Xaudio2 est l’API qui se chargera de la gestion du son sur les futurs jeux vidéo PC et Xbox 360 et qui remplacera ni plus ni moins DirectSound. A la base XAudio2 gère les systèmes audio multicanaux, apporte un support amélioré de spatialisation du son en 3D et est optimisé pour processeurs multi-coeurs.

– Use XAudio2 if you can. It’s fast, efficient, and reasonably reliable on both Vista and XP.
– DirectSound will tend to suck on Vista. You might be better with WaveOut, actually, if XA2 won’t work.
– Modify Timestretch Advanced options at your own risk. If you wonder what they do, visit http://www.surina.net/soundtouch/README.html
– If your PC is really slow (Pentium 4-ish or Core Duo without the « 2 ») then you’ll probably want to disable Effcts Processing. It’s kind of cpu intensive, although still pretty insignificant on Duos and Quads.
– Audio Expansion only works with XAudio2 drivers. WaveOut can’t expand, period, and DSound does it at the driver level (some soundcard drivers will auto-expand, some won’t). DSound can also do expansion as a 3D positioning system, which is way over-complicated and not worth the effort. Sad
