I've been messing around with a Corsair Void USB which has 8.1 surround sound via Dolby in it.

I was wanting to do some experimenting with audio and games that don't support surround sound. Since enabling the mode adds a slight reverb to audio (similar to being in a room), I wanted to see what it'd be like if I took in the standard L/R the game was giving out and mapped it to play into FrontL/FrontR. To clarify, I am not looking for how to emulate surround sound or anything like that, but rather just to change the two output channels.

Does any application exist that can do this? I did some looking around but it was hard to find exactly what I was looking for, and I doubt one exists. I'm on a machine running Windows 7.

    Welcome to Software Recommendations! Interesting question – but it might help if you could edit it and add what OS this app should run on, and how much you'd be willing to spend on it. – Izzy Dec 16 '18 at 14:33
  • Agreed, OS is probably the most helpful thing you can add here. I can name half a dozen viable options for Linux and/or BSD for example that wouldn't cost you a penny, but none of them are practical for Windows, and they're sufficiently difficult to set up on OS X that they're not even worth trying there. – Austin Hemmelgarn Dec 17 '18 at 19:23
  • I knew something was missing. My bad. I've resolved that. – Xan the Dragon Dec 19 '18 at 3:23
