sn0wl Posted April 18, 2006 Report Share Posted April 18, 2006 (edited) Toshiba Virtual Sound M (TVS Modded) for Windows XP First of all many thanks to Ultima who made this installation possible by modding the program. :( :) Alcahest mentioned sound service change once but Ultima made it possible thus adding support for generic installation and made his own setup! TOSHIBA Virtual Sound HD works as an audio filter using SRS TruSurround XT, SRS WOW HD and SRS Circle Surround Xtract 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 before it is sent to your speakers. The boost effect is significant regardless of the quality of your sound card or speakers. Requirements: *Any and ONLY a Toshiba Laptop Modded version probably work on other computers as well. *High Definition (HD) capable sound card Modded version adds services for normal sound cards as well so no need for HD card! *Windows XP Ultima is still testing the application and found out audio driver service name should be added to registry - otherwise TVS icon will not show up on taskbar even it is running in background. How to find your Sound Card service: Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003 users can download our new attached script TVSASI.cmd (TOSHiBA Virtual Sound Audio Service Information) and post their result. Windows XP Home and Windows 2000 users should use the LaptopVideo2Go NERD tool and post the logfile or execute the following procedure: - Start > Run > devmgmt.msc - Find their audio device's name check its properties - Under the Details tab, select Service in the dropdown, and that's the service name we're looking for - Provide this service name along with the audio device manufacturer and model Currently added sound card services: ac97intc - Intel® 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audiocontroller aeaudio - Analog Devices AC'97 AEAudioService - Andrea Audio allegro - ESS Allegro PCI Audio (WDM) ALCXWDM - Realtek AC'97 Audio cs429x - Cirrus Logic Crystal WDM Audio Codec emu10k - SoundBlaster Live!

DOWNLOAD (462 kb) 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! :P 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. Legal Note: TVS is intended for Toshiba laptops only. Use at your own risk. Warning:We had reports of TVS crashing some systems or not working at all. Use at your own risk.
