There are 2 different types of multichannel audio hardware:

  1. real multichannel hardware typically comes as external USB or FireWire devices and has 4/8/16 channels of input and output
  2. cheabo built-in 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound cards coming on most modern mainboards.

1. External MultiChannel Audio Hardware

These cards can be addressed in vvvv only using their WDM drivers which always only offer to use their channels in pairs of stereo. These pairs (like 'Channel 1-2', 'Channel 3-4', ...) are exposed via the Driver pin of the AudioOut (DShow9).

Addressing the channels of such a hardware individually only works using ASIO drivers which are not supported by vvvv's native DShow9 nodes.

The VVVV.Audio.Pack or the BASS plugins provided by vux supports ASIO drivers.

If you have the addonpack installed look out for a node called AudioOut (BASS Asio) and check its helpfile for further instructions.

2. Built-in 5.1 or 7.1 Surround Sound Cards

Multiple channels of a built-in 5.1 or 7.1 surround card can be addressed using the FileStream (DShow9) and WavePlayer (DShow9).
