Hi guys, I wonder if somebody has a solution for this? I am using the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 sound card and have a pretty ****** receiver that does little to no bass management for 5.1 sources. The sound card itself does a great job for stereo sources, strong and full bass throughout.

But in surround playback, none of the low frequencies from front/center/surround are sent to the sub. If a source has little to nothing in the dedicated LFE channel (e.g. the Bob Dylan surround SACDs), well then I have little to no bass.

Is there no way to do bass management in Ubuntu?
