3DSoundsurge heeft een artikel geschreven over een QSound sound technology. So wat is QSound?
There has been much focus lately on Creative and Aureal's 3D sound cards but as we mentioned several weeks ago in our feature on Sensaura there are other companies that license 3D sound technology used for soundcards. Another such company is QSound. QSound's calls their 3D sound technology Q3D, which they introduced in 1991. QSound doesn't sell chips using the 3D audio technology. Just like Sensaura, they license their 3D audio technology to other companies. Some recent design wins for Q3D are Sega's Dreamcast, VLSI's Thunderbird (which Aztech's 368DSP card uses) and Trident's 4DWAVE-DX and 4DWAVE-NX chips. QSound's 3D audio technology is not only used by sound chips companies but has also been used in many games and a few other software applications like iQ and QCreator.
