Can you please give me more details how can I do this, I'm a beginner and I do not know.:banghead:
Can you tell me what are the steps to follow to give disabling.docx?


I managed to install but get the following error,DTS is not available.
The error quoted in the first image should be due to the fact that the driver package is not digitally signed, so in this case, it is necessary to activate the test mode or to disable the driver signature enforcement.

Please make your signed driver DTS x with DAtmos.
Thanks

@Dj Urko

I was trying to install it and use it for my external 5.1 speakers. I don't if there's another way of installing Dolby Atmos for gaming for the mod because the sound effect was working for me.

I know about editing the XML preset.

@Virion you must run bat file or first install product settings then install appx
But Remember that dts headphone x, nahimic, dolby atmos are enhancers for stereo channel configuration i thing that nahimic can work in multichannel configuration but affects only front speakers

For Dolby atmos I think you have to first enable 5.1 processing by editing system32\dolbyaposvc\default.xml first. It is configured for 2 channels on stock settings.

So that means older dolby home theatre v4 is better than all latest dolby uwp drivers

Does Dolby Digital Home Theater v4 do surround-up mixing?

@OMER in my mod all these plugins work together over speakers analog only dolby home thater v4 and dolby digital plus work on spdif
You must set all plugins to music and only one to movie and you can also disable someone who dont need to use

@Dj Urko It is surround sound upmixer; properly configured it upmixes audio to all channels, including side/rear channels. I use it for upscaling stereo-5.1 on my audio system.
check those settings:
For 5.1
Code:
<endpoint type="internal_speaker" brand="Generic" model="Default" operating_mode="normal" fs="48000" total_count="6" front_count="3" side_count="2" height_count="0" has_subwoofer="1">
Also check this:
Code:
<surround-decoder-enable value="1"/>
All previous settings such as headphone surround virtualiser, dialog enhancer, volume leveler, graphic equaliser is present in xml.
Only missing is three additional Intelligent Equaliser presets.
I stopped using PCEE4 for audio processing because is has a defect that I cannot personally accept: It cannot handle float audio data properly; audio samples louder than 0dBFS clips with PCEE4. This bug was removed in all later versions of Dolby software.
@ReconNyko All Dolby software does upmixing. PCEE3 and earlier uses Dolby ProLogic. PCEE4 and later versions use Dolby Next Gen surround Decoder. This decoder is the basis for current atmos upmixing on receivers.

Shouldn't 5.1 speakers be 3 fronts because a left, Center, Right. 2 sides/rear: left rear and right rear. 1 sub

Instead of what @alanfox2000 said on pg 30 on making a enhancers thread, which is 5.1 speakers: total_count="5" front_count="2" side_count="2" height_count="0" has_subwoofer="1"

?

Center speaker is in front, thus it is considered as a special front speaker.
Alanfox2000 also approve.

So 6 chn count instead of 5 chn count in the XML preset?
You see the math. Total count=6.
Dolby considers the 5.1 to be a 6 channel system, just one channel limited to low frequency.

i see. i don't know why @alanfox2000 said at #692 post on making-audio-enhancers-work-on-windows pg 29

For 5.1 or 7.1 speakers - Dolby DAX API Service 3.xxxxx.yyy.z
change from total_count="2" front_count="2" side_count="0" height_count="0" has_subwoofer="0" to
5.1 speakers: total_count="5" front_count="2" side_count="2" height_count="0" has_subwoofer="1"
7.1 speakers: total_count="7" front_count="2" side_count="2" height_count="2" has_subwoofer="1"

when i all i heard and read that 5.1 is 6 channel system.

This is old debate. We had a discusssion afterward, and though if I recall properly alanfox did not confirm my response explictly, the configuration for Dolby Atmos by him/her was changed.

Okay, as long as he changed then it is confirmed for dolby uwp apps. I knew 5.1 was 6 channels. But didn't know that the configuration changed on Alanfox's page.

I wonder if using a channel less made a difference in sound.
Not sure. Have to listen to see.
Windows do have a way to tell APOs upstream that the next filter down has a specific speaker configuration. Dolby Digital Plus, PCEE4 uses that; SRS Premium Sound uses that. This is why DDL works. The DDL APO sets a new speaker configuration for APOs upstream to use.
Why this xml setting is beyond me.

Thing that bothers me is that the configuration is set when downloading the original presets on puresoftapps. Like for 2.1
It supposed to be this 2.1 speakers: total_count="4" front_count="3" side_count="0" height_count="0" has_subwoofer="1"


But in preset 2.1 is total_count="2" front_count="2" side_count="0" height_count="0" has_subwoofer="0">
