    the motherboard is a Zotac ION ITX A... (onboard sound)

    are there alternatives that would make my task more easy.... ie. route via external soundcard ?

    it might be better to try to use a add-on sound card(pci is best due to higher bus speeds, and less latency then usb, but usb can and does work fine in most cases)

    i know that when i originally tried to setup my intel 945, i tried using onboard(its been a while, but i believe that also has a realtek chip), but couldn't get it to reliably display all of the outputs all the time in the audio processing software...

    here is where the issue comes in though-- the atom processor cannot go above 30-35% usage without causing some really nasty audio dropouts-- this was the entire reason that my 945 got removed, and replaced with a zotac 9300/pentium setup..

    so if you decide to use audio processing, you need to be very picky about what plugins you use-- some of them are more cpu intensive then others..

    audiomulch includes some very nice, small plugins that seem to work very well at very low processor requirements-- i run 2 instances of their mono line level adjustment, and don't believe that it affected the overall cpu % much at all..

    a quick note about console and audiomulch-- i have tried both, and i really like audiomulch better.. the reason is that it includes a bunch of plugins(like the level control i listed-- and i still have not found anywhere else that offers a level control plugin), and the overall layout structure allows me to feel more in control of what is going on.. console is a great program for the price, but lacks certain features that might become more critical once you start to get more involved with what you need to do with your setup..

    the problem with the software not showing all outputs on my soundcard is the biggest showstopper for me... but i will try audiomulch and see if i can get it to display all channels

    sadly my board does not have a pci slot (mini-itx board) but usb is not a problem

    but back in a bit

    cant seem to find the right settings to change

    should i use the aux outputs for the other channels? so the soundout is for the main channels and the other for surround and center/sub ?

    hmm... i'm to "un-wise" to figure out how i capture the audio before it gets to the jacks and route it through audiomulch and then out to the jacks

    do i need virtual audio cable for that? and does that support multichannel?

    yes VAC supports multi channel-- you just set VAC as the primary audio output in windows, and then use AM to manipulate the audio, and send it back to the realtek outputs.

    thanks a lot.... one last thing.... what is the best way to distribute the center channel to the front speakers ie like phantom settings on some home theater amps

    i could set my system as 4 speakers and then just use a crossover, but i would like to set it for 5.1 and distribute center info to the front speakers if possible

    for some reason there is no output at the center or sub channels.... so far i only got sound from the front speakers. i have wired my plugins this way:



    windows prim. sound is set to cable1 (VAC) and my devices in mulch is set like this:
