Eric van GA-Source heeft een review opgehoest van de Waveforce 128, een nieuwe soundcard van Yamaha met 3D toestandjes:
The Waveforce 192 uses Sensaura to implement DirectSound 3D. Sensaura technology creates a 3D sound field using conventional two-speaker stereo playback systems. It also includes direction, height and distance information in processed or recorded audio, such that the sounds heard by the listener appear to extend beyond the stereo loudspeakers. Realize that this card does not provide the ability to use four speakers; however, not all gamers have the space to set up four speakers for their system. Using two speakers or headphones, the Waveforce did an admirable job of rendering 3D sound. It was somewhat difficult to get a feeling for distance behind you from a sound, but quite a number of things did actually feel like they were coming from behind. With any sound sources that came from the sides around to the front, positioning was perfect, and the echo and reverb effects made a huge difference. With Sensaura's support for EAX (Creative Lab's Environmental Audio Extensions), you could hear the echoes of your footsteps change depending on the room you walked through in Half-Life. In Unreal, I almost felt the shells from the AutoMag flying over my head as they ejected. Jedi Knight (the three-level demo version is included in the retail package) was awesome and realistic as well.
