About This File

This is a pack containing a compiled OpenAL Soft libraries and softwares for Linux use. It was compiled by me (KayX291) in order to help newcomers with using OpenAL Soft without trying to compile it by themselves. It can be used for specific software which uses OpenAL or use it in your system as a replacement.

 

The main difference between OpenAL and OpenAL Soft is the fact that the latter is not only open source, but also a support for mono, stereo, 4-channel, 5.1, 6.1, 7.1 and HRTF output. But with the configurator, you can customize and even enhance the sound output with filters, effects etc.

 

It contains:

- OpenAL Soft libraries

- OpenAL Soft GUI Configurator

- HRTF files

- alsoftrc sample file

and more.

 

They are available in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions.

 

Dependencies required:

Qt5 and pressumably SDL2 (For GUI configurator to work)

 

Compiled on:

ArchLinux - 64 bit

Manjaro 17.0.6 (via VirtualBox) - 32 bit

      Canonical, the developer of the popular Linux distribution Ubuntu, recently announced their upcoming removal of support for 32-bit applications. Many Linux application developers were extremely displeased with this development as it would mean a large percentage of older Linux games would no longer be supported on the most popular Linux distribution.
      Valve has been at the forefront of development for gaming on Linux, and 32-bit support has been critical to their initiative. Pierre-Loup Griffais, a major programmer on Valve’s Linux team, had previously implied on Twitter that Steam would be “switching our focus to a different distribution” in response to Canonical dropping 32-bit support from Ubuntu.
      After backlash from Valve and from Linux gamers, Canonical backtracked on their stance. They announced on their blog that “We will change our plan and build selected 32-bit i386 packages for Ubuntu 19.10 and 20.04 LTS. We will put in place a community process to determine which 32-bit packages are needed to support legacy software, and can add to that list post-release if we miss something that is needed.”
      In the aftermath, Griffais posted on the “Steam for Linux” discussion forum, stating:
      He also states:
      At the very least, Steam will be compatible with Ubuntu for the time being. Thankfully Canonical was willing to listen and accommodate to community backlash.
      Are you a Ubuntu gamer? If so, do you plan on sticking with Ubuntu?

      In Powerslave EX, the speech for Ramses is of especially low quality, making it hard to understand at points, I went ahead and ripped my own files from a PS1 disc.

      This download contains a set of files that replace the some of the lower quality audio files in the Windows port of "Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain" with those from the original PlayStation release.

      Hello everyone, I would like to clarify why my editing in the article on sound is constantly canceled?
      https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Glossary:Sound
       
       
       
       
      Here is the evidence on the pictures below about the difference in sound on the spectrograms.
      As you can probably notice, that on Windows 10 samples are more identical to the original, rather than on Windows 7.
       
      Used materials in this tests


       
      Source sound


      Windows 10 on Realtek


      Windows 10 on Creative G1


      Windows 7 on Realtek


      Windows 7 on Creative G1


       
      The peculiarity of this behavior in terms of sound in Windows 7 was caused by the introduction of DRM at the development stage of Windows Vista, which is also easily confirmed by reading the development literature.
       
      To carry out this test, recording through the line input via the built-in sound card with the help of Audacity was used and then the results were transferred to the schedule through the Spek.
      The conditions were the same (Volume 80% output and input) and the same player Foobar2000 on default settings (no asio/openal and ks with wasapi exclusive for output) was used.
       
      For very talented people, I note that the sound system has remained the same since Windows Vista, but has been significantly reworked: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/windows-10-has-better-sound-quality-than-windows-7-on-my-computer-not-necessarily-yours.789224/
      Especially it is important for the old and not-so games that use DirectSound.
      And for those who like to listen to music, and especially in a high quality, because windose 10 does not force you to use all sorts of workarounds crutches mentioned above.

      This audio codec provides a way for older applications and games that require the Windows Media Source Filter to bypass all ASF codecs. DivX ;-) was not made by the corporation DivX, but instead it was later adopted by the company and trademarked.
       
      Known games that require this audio codec to play audio:
      - Monopoly Tycoon
      - Test Drive 6
