I’m on Mac OS Mojave. I’m experimenting with using FMOD to generate 7.1.4 ambiences for non-game applications. The problem I’m running into is that FMOD won’t let me simply send all of the outputs to a 7.1.4 device. This appears to be happening because FMOD always mixes down to the speaker configuration of the specified interface in Audio MIDI Setup. And unfortunately Audio Midi Setup doesn’t support speaker configurations beyond 7.1.
Is there a way to disable the AMS speaker configuration “awareness” of FMOD so that it will just play all of the channels out the assigned interface?
This leads me to another question–how do people monitor the 7.1.4 output of FMOD for game applications? It doesn’t appear to be possible on the Mac.
