HRTF (Head Related Transfer Functions) refers to the way that the curvature
of one's ears are used to localize sound in 3D space.


This mod uses algorithms that can simulate this action, allowing for full 3D
surround sound with just a normal pair of earphones or headphones.


The resulting audio is referred to as binaural.


This has been uploaded before, but it hasn't been updated with the latest version of HRTF which:
  • Restored support for Doppler effect
  • Fixed spatialized sounds being too loud
  • Fixed stereo sources being too quiet
  • Fixed volume curve calculation for some sources (was inverse square law, but must be just inverse)
  • Added missing reverb factor calculation
  • Implemented different ways of transport of spatial data from X3DAudio to XAudio
  • Implemented a new way of transport which simply uses result from the last call to X3DAudio

This new version works perfectly now for Skyrim, plus has about 30% performance increase.


Installation

DO NOT USE ANY MOD MANAGER TO INSTALL THIS! COPY THE FILES MANUALLY.

  1. Extract the files to the Skyrim installation directory
  2. Launch the game and enjoy!

You must disable any other surround sound features of your headset or soundcard.
You will only get the desired effect if you use headphones!

If you have surround headphones (5.1/7.1), make sure to disable any surround processing.
Two channels (stereo) are sufficient for this mod to work.
Any further surround processing will distort the effect.

You might need to download and install Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 (the x86 version).

Uninstalling

Remove the files from the SSE installation directory.
