Hello, recently I found myself wondering if there is a way to apply a binaural DSP to the whole system, i.e. have the soundcard driver directly communicate with it to alter the stream from the get-go.

The reason I wonder about this is because I have very diverse music interests and tend to browse the web on YT etc. looking for more interesting music because that's where the choice of complete titles is greatest, and I find the idea of having to download everything where I find the stereo image lacking a bit cumbersome.

For more technical details, I use Opera on a Win 7 64-bit OS and currently own an ASUS soundcard with ASUS drivers, which I may or may not replace with an ODAC in the long run. Of course this would complicate this whole "let soundcard driver interact with plugin" thing a bit.

Perhaps there is also a dedicated program for this that can run indepentend of the soundcard driver? And no, the Dolby Headphone settings are not an option as they are incredibly annoying.

I use Virtual Audio Stream and it allows me to apply any vst effects to system wide. You also simply use foo_record and set the input source in your soundcard mixer to stereo mix and use any of the crossfeed effects avaliable to foobar2000. This introduces noticable a delay so not great for video. Also if you havent tried tried Xnors crossfeed your missing out!
