Surround Sound, should I proceed when I get this message

I use Music Maker 16 Premium. Some time I want to use surround sound but when I click from Mixer

I get this message. I am not sure if it is ok to proceed. Any advice will be appreicated.

 

I got Tascam US-122 MKII audio interface connected with computer. When I tried to see what will happen I get this message.

Does this mean I can not use surround sound in Music Maker?

 

Thank you

It sounds to me like your audio output device (soundcard, etc.) does not support 5.1 surround sound.

 

I'm not a computer expert, but that would be hard to believe in this day and age.  You need to investigate the capabilities of your audio output device.  BTW...are you using a laptop?

Hi,

 

Thank you Procyon for reply, I use Dell Laptop, and using audio interface because of Music Maker. In the Music Maker my driver is set to Tascam audio interface US-122 MKII , however before, when I used computer's sound card Sigmatel I had gotten the same message. My computer is not older.

Yes, but what are your speakers plugged into?  Are your speakers a 5.1 surround system?

 

Does your computer have an independant audio output?  What is it? (Check the computer system information.)  Is it capable of supporting 5.1 surround sound?

 

The Tascam does not support surround sound - only stereo.

Hi,

 

Due to the magix.info website maintenance I was unable to login.

Thank you for reply, you are right, Tascam does not support surround sound.

I just use Laptop(Notebook)speaker or Head phone. No external speakers.
