    What a plugin..

    I hope more detailed documentation and/or more online information will be available soon. With so many adjustments made available to you, I feel like I'm underutilizing this thing and just scratching the surface of this plugin's functionality. Some questions:

    1. what does FX chain do?
    2. what's FAT?
    3. what's DeWoofer?

    Awesome! Time to play...

    Control, too much control...! Maybe the audiophiles can give us some tips on how to use all those wonderful controls. Right now, I'm just going with what sounds good to me.

    What does the "brainwave inductor" do? :rolleyes:

    Yay! This also means that Quicktime movies dropped into iTunes will play with simulated OSS 3D audio!

    Teej, you can get all the info from the online manual, even if it is meant for the Windows version (bleah), the info is basically the same.

    I installed version 1.3 ( http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/ipod_itunes/oss3dpluginforitunes.html ) but now the Presets are missing. There is only Manual and Save as Preset now...

    Anyone know how to get the presets back? Or am I missing something?

    Thanks.

    Maybe, but that would be the same as manually adjusting the OSS 3D settings. The purpose of disabling the equalizer as recomended by the software developer is for the user to experience their presets. If you prefer tweaking with it you can do so within OSS 3D more precisely than iTunes equalizer. ;)
