Software Crossover with Xonar DGX
 

Hey!

The question is related to a soundcard feature, so i iope i am posting in a right section.

I have a Asus Xonar DGX sound card, which is pce-e based, 5.1 card. I want to use it to set up a 2.1 system. I have a stereo speaker system with its own integrated amp and a subwoofer with an amp. Both do not have crossovers in them. So i decided to use this card to set up a crossover and on top of that use some room correction EQing.

I installed VSThost to do the crossover/eq thing, but i can only find one stereo output channel while i expected to see 3 pairs, since it is a 5.1 card. Before that, i used M-Audio FireWire 410 and i was always able to use any of its outputs from a DAW software. I guess, i am missing something about cheap consumer grade 5.1 cards.

My question is - is there a way i can use at least 4 channels inside a software similar to VSTHost and send different sound to those channels? Or should switch to another card?

On another hand, there is a dedicated LFE/Ctr output in that card. Maybe, i somehow can use that output for my 2.1 setup? Simply setup a crossover through a software that comes with the card?

My guess is that the soundcard driver needs to support ASIO...try downloading the free ASIO driver and experiment with that

Also consider using JRIVER as a media streaming software - It has massive support and tweaks for multichannel speaker systems...
