Clipping gunshot sounds with G35 7.1 Surround Headset
New, WishlistPublic


When using the 7.1 surround mode (software / USB headset) there is a noticeable stuttering / sound clipping ingame when many guns shoot at the same time.

I have tried lowering the volume, increasing the sound channels to 128 and updating my usb headset driver.

This occurs only in Arma 3.

The same issue has been reported on Bohemia and Logitech forums but there is no solving yet.

In general there really aren't many surround sound options for this game :/

I don't think that this has something to do with options - it is more like a bug / maybe an excessive demand?? This needs to be fixed as many gamers use the G35 headset.

Have you checked or tried adjusting the Playback Format in Advanced tab of windows sound? There were others that had a similar stutter/choppy in MP (including me) for multiple sound sources - that ended up being a result of the format being set too high, thus putting huge demand on the cpu

cancerouspete: I tried that you said, but for me it only became worse.

Sorry this didn't help :(
