I’d like to create an audio file to test my Cambridge FPS2000 digital 4.1 surround sound system. I installed an AC3 codec and am able to play surround sound music with Media Player Classic. The rear speakers sound a bit weak, but that may be caused by the music recording.
By creating a test file with five signals in sequence ("Front left, Front right, etc.), each at the same volume, will help me check my setup.
I recorded 5 mono tracks and mapped them as follows, but no sound comes from the Sub-woofer and Rear Left speaker when I play the file.
Front Left____________Channel: 1
Front Right___________Channel: 2
LFE/Sub-Woofer Channel: 3
Rear Left_____________Channel: 4
Rear Right____________Channel: 5
I downloaded a 7.1 test file from the Internet but can’t find one for a 4.1 system, so I’d like to make my own. Can anyone lend a hand and tell me what I might be overlooking?
