Virtual Sound works as an audio filter using SRS WOW XT and SRS TruSurround XT functions provided by SRS Labs. A MUST-HAVE software to significantly boost your laptop speakers! TVS works as a global 'system sound plug-in.' It employs SRS Labs WOW XT and TruSurround XT technologies to processes any sound of sampling rate 44.100 kHz or 48.000 kHz before it is sent to your speakers. The boost effect is significant regardless of the quality of your sound card or speakers.
*Any and ONLY a Toshiba Laptop
*HD capable sound card for version 1.02 or later.
You can try Modded TVS here - it is modded by Ultima to alter installation restrictions and support for other sound cards as well, including non-HD capable!
Note: If you have HD capable soundcard on your Toshiba but installation says you can't install it on your machine, read this thread.

SRS WOW HD delivers an amazing virtual surround sound from various two channel contents over two speakers or headphones.
SRS TruSurround XT delivers an amazing virtual surround sound from various multi-channel content over two speakers or headphones. SRS TruSurround XT is the virtualizer that features post processing audio enhancements, creating a wider, and taller sound image field with deep rich bass from multi-channel content using SRS FOCUS and SRS TruBass technologies.
SRS Circle Surround II converts 5.1 or 6.1 channel surround sound into 2 channel signal which is recorded or broadcast using conventional technologies, then retrieves the original 5.1 or 6.1 channel signal form a surround sound system. Any multi-channel surround sound source can be recorded on an ordinary CD format, or can be broadcast through the current FM stereo broadcasting system.
SRS is selling its own WOW XT plug-in for Windows Media Player, which only works within WMP, for $10. I am pretty sure this TVS would cost more than $30! Moreover, we wouldn't have got this software for even $100 if Toshiba hadn't cooperated with SRS Labs - it is not commercially available - there is no retail version of such thing. Toshiba must have paid a lot for the licensing so enjoy!
Thanks to Hazart for telling us about TVS.
The latest version of TVS is Toshiba Virtual Sound for Windows XP v1, "VirtualSound v2" is actually an old version of v1 for some odd reason - both the application version and digital signature time stamp are old.
