More Clarification on Mac M-Audio
9:06 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
M-Audio's Jason Ivan wrote to IMG to address questions and concerns that readers brought up in response to the recently published interview. Several readers noted that a handful of Mac games supported Creative Labs' environmental audio API, EAX, and were curious as to whether support for it could be added to the Revolution 7.1 and Sonica Theater. Here is his response:
I don't believe so. Unfortunately, adding support for just these games may not be the best use of our resources. Ivan also explained that; in games that support Dolby Surround audio, such as Warcraft III; both products can use Circle Surround II to decode the signal in Cinema mode. He also added that the Revolution 7.1 does support deep sleep mode.
We'd have to use a lot of resources that would be better spent working on technologies that would benefit users
in the future, too. We're still investigating how we could contribute to gaming audio, but my guess is it won't work with any previously-released games.
Lastly, congratulations to M-Audio for being awarded MacWorld's "Best of Show" for the Revolution 7.1 at Macworld San Francisco.
