Sirus 5.1 Surround Sound Features
Sirus 5.1 Surround Sound Software
Having a GUI makes advanced settings easy to access. The software can be used to accomplish the same tasks as the Tactical Mixing Console and much more. With audio profiles huge changes can be made with a single button press.
A status bar is available which summarizes the current audio settings. For convenience the software minimizes to system tray, but the Sirus can even be used without software for basic features.
The software was fairly simple to use, but the sample provided did not include instructions. The layout of buttons and options was scattered all-over the page and did not have an intuitive, consistent flow. For this reason it took longer to learn the software than normal, and even still I spend time hunting for little things that could easily be organized into tabbed pages. Once you find the right page the interface is fairly straight forward. It would be nice to have more descriptive tooltips and explanations on each page describing the purpose and instructions of each advanced feature.
