GenAudio's AstoundSound 3D-audio system is explained by inventor Jerry Mahabub; download a free 30-day trial of the consumer application here.
Hi Scott; I have been to this website before. I listened to the sample of HELLBOY 2 and one or two of the music selections. I was impressed with the samples. I downloaded the trial thingy but I could not get sound or it was too low. Over the past few months I figured out it was some computer settings of mine and by trial and error I downloaded the trial the other day and got it to work. I had some stored stereo movie files. Unfortunately, I have to say that I found the stereo separation to only be poor to fair. I tried the three expander modes but they did not help. I deleted the program and listened to the virtual mode on the Realtek HD audio thingy that came with this E-Machines computer. That worked fine(I had to defeat virtual on Realtek go get AstoundSound to work). I also think that my upconverted Magnavox dvd player with its virtual surround mode also sounds quite good.
If this application can sound like Hellboy 2 all the time on the demo this company could have really something.
