FxSound automatically improves sound quality by restoring the frequencies that are lost through data compression. Music, however, is very subjective. That's why we give you the tools to adjust FxSound Audio Effects to your personal tastes.
There are five FxSound Effects settings. Fidelity, Ambience, 3D Surround Sound, Dynamic Boost and HyperBass. Each can be adjusted with a slider on a scale of 1-10. We automatically set these levels to where we think the best sound quality is achieved for the average user, but you can either adjust these levels yourself or select from a list of music presets.
Adding Fidelity to the audio eliminates the "muffled" sound that is an artifact of the data compression algorithms used in Internet audio formats. FxSound compensates for this loss of high frequency fidelity by carefully regenerating the missing high frequency harmonics in the audio. This harmonic restoration is performed using patent-pending technology that carefully synthesizes high frequency harmonics to replace the harmonics lost during the encoding process.
Adding Ambience to the audio compensates for the lost or diminished stereo depth that is the result of closely located speakers, poor listening environments, and sonic losses due to data compression of Internet audio formats. FxSound compensates for the reduced stereo imaging and depth of PC audio by carefully regenerating the ambience and stereo depth. This same ambience processing has been used by Grammy winning engineers of artists such as Alanis Morissette and Ella Fitzgerald.
Using the 3D Surround Sound component adds amazing depth and body to the audio, compensating for monitoring limitations and sonic losses due to data compression. With 3D Surround processing the sounds will surround you, virtually putting you inside the music! 3D Surround enhances the sound played on conventional 2-speaker systems and makes even small PC speaker systems sound larger and richer. It is also fully compatible with Surround Sound playback systems.
Typical PC-based multimedia playback systems and even home stereo playback systems suffer from limited dynamic range and headroom. Dynamic Boost compensates for this limited headroom by carefully processing the audio to increase the perceived loudness of the audio without altering the perceived dynamic range. By adding Dynamic Gain Boosting, your playback system will sound twice as loud without losing any punch on loud passages.
Using the Bass component adds deep, rich bass sound to the audio by compensating for the bass limitations of almost all PC-based audio systems and data-compressed audio formats. FxSound does this by carefully regenerating the low frequency harmonics, thus increasing the perceived bass, but without exceeding the speakers physical limits, adding or changing speakers or amplifiers, and without increased power consumption. Bass greatly improves the low end performance of any sound system.
