    Hi,
    I wonder about this settings and whats the best one?
    I noticed that you recommend to use:

    Low work better between frequencies 10hz and 500hz
    Medium work better between frequencies 120hz and 10khz
    High work better between frequencies 500hz and 30khz

    BUT in "For Mastering" folder the Frequencies are much different:

    Configuration\LowFrequencySeparation,10hz~130hz
    Configuration\MediumFrequencySeparation,130hz~3khz
    Configuration\HighFrequencySeparation,3khz~30khz

    Please recommend the best setting for 5.1 surround to be used with Surround headphones, not speakers (I assume headphones and speakers should use bit different frequencies)

    Many Thanks

    20Hz-20KHz
    Im going to be using Dolby Encoder, I have the Elite800 PS4 headphones and they use SPDIF.

    P.S. Please tell me what to use for Dolby.ini and Ecoder.ini?
    Currently its at default:
    MediumFrequencySeparation,80Hz~500KHz

    MediumFrequencySeparation,80Hz~500KHz >MediumFrequencySeparation,20Hz~20KHz find each line of that change to that and save it. :) you really don't have to touch them if it's fine.

    Thank you for replay, last question.

    What about:
    Bass.ini
    Mids.ini
    Treble.ini


    In the 'For 3D Surround' Folder and 'For Mastering' Folder ?

    Which of these 2 is best? Or maybe something else?

    Option 1:
    Configuration\LowFrequencySeparation,20hz~130hz
    Configuration\MediumFrequencySeparation,130hz~3khz
    Configuration\HighFrequencySeparation,3khz~20khz

    Option 2:
    Configuration\LowFrequencySeparation,20hz~500hz
    Configuration\MediumFrequencySeparation,120hz~10khz
    Configuration\HighFrequencySeparation,500hz~20khz


    Best Regards and Many Thanks.

    Sorry but I have no clue how the frequency settings work. Maybe it's Robert's far from perfect English (no offense meant, not everybody has good language skills), maybe I'm just missing something. But maybe somebody can help me (Robert)?

    My soundcard is connected to a 5.1 receiver, the subwoofer's specs are 20 - 200 hz, the speakers go from 30 - 30000 hz. Which files should I edit and which values should I enter to achieve the following: No frequency filtering/ redirection by the soundcard. I want the full spectrum to be passed through to the receiver so it (the receiver) can take care of frequency filtering/ redirecting to the speakers and the subwoofer. Thanks in advance for your answer.

    P.S. Thank you very much for all the hard work put into your drivers. Thanks to your work I am finally able to use my soundcard in ASIO mode. The original drivers just don't work in this mode, the keep crashing as soon as I start playback.

    Thanks Robert. And what about all the other files like subwoofer.ini, bass.ini, mid.ini, treble.ini, Dolby.ini... I noticed that there are also values like "LowFrequencySeparation" in those files, some even contain a value for subwoofer crossover. No need to change those values?
