Downmixing surround audio files to stereo


Recommended Posts

I was just wondering whether Poweramp downmixes 5.1 audio to stereo by just playing the first two channels, or whether it plays all channels, outputting as stereo. I have Poweramp on an Android headunit in my car and just wanted confirmation of this. Thanks.

Oh sweet. So, implying all channels are incorporated into the downmix via ffmpeg? 

Correct, the various channels are mapped to basic L and R by the ffmpeg module using an algorithm that tries to balance them out correctly.
