F1 2011 is a Formula One car racing game from Codemasters. It features new multiplayer options including splitscreen, great weather effects - and, on the Windows LIVE version, cutting-edge sound spatialisation algorithms using the "Game" edition of our Rapture3D games software.

Hopefully you know this already, but just in case, Rapture3D features include:

  • Advanced 3D audio rendering, including "holographic" techniques using Higher Order Ambisonics (HOA).
  • Support for headphone surround, stereo, surround stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and 3D7.1 using the outputs of your Windows sound card.
  • Support for hundreds of sound sources and multiple effects using a scalable architecture tailored to the computer in use.
  • Volumetric sources, second order filters, high quality sinc sample rate conversion, HRTFs and more...

For more details, see our page on 3D audio for games.

If you like the sound of Rapture3D in F1 you might like to buy a copy of the "User" edition, which works with some other OpenAL-compatible games.
