My Creative Sound Blaster settings for SQUAD

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Thought I'd share my custom settings for SQUAD for anyone running a similar setup. I've found these settings to sound great, give very good directional sound and also enable you to hear footsteps and people crawling around in fields very clearly. For anyone who does not believe that stereo headphones can give perfect directional sound, you literally have to try it, I can pinpoint people near me in complete concealment and generally shoot them dead, all by sound alone. Plus you also get the benefit of larger drivers in each ear cup so the sound is much fuller. I was originally using the onboard sound on my ASUS Z270 TUF MARK 1 motherboard with a pair of 5.1 Roccat Kave Analog headphones (https://www.roccat.org/en-GB/Products/Gaming-Sound/Kave-Series/Kave-XTD-5-1-Analog/) but my latest setup just blows that out of the water.

 

My hardware:

 

Soundcard - Creative Sound BlasterX Pro-Gaming AE-5 (https://us.creative.com/p/sound-cards/sound-blasterx-ae-5)

 

Headphones - Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250ohm (http://www.inta-audio.com/beyerdynamic-dt990-pro-headphones-black-limited-edition-p7379) Worth noting that as these are 250ohm headphones they generally won't be very good if powered by your motherboard, they require a headphone AMP of some sort or a decent soundcard with built in AMP.  

 

Mic - Antlion ModMic4 With Mute (https://antlionaudio.com/products/modmic-4)
