I currently use 3 monitors to efficiëntly use multiple windows and applications at the same time. This works very well for me in general, but I have a problem.
Sometimes a specific window, application or other sound source start producing sound and I want to shift my attention to it (e.g. to mute it or because it requires user interaction). Sometimes the source is difficult to find (especially when the sounds are generic). This brings me to a question:
Is there a way/driver/application to modify the mixer so that the sound source location gets taken into consideration and the sound will shift to the left/right according to the position of the source on the screen or monitor?
In layman's terms: I want music playing from a player on the right monitor sound louder from the right speaker then from the left speaker. Is this possible?
I personally use Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04, but this might be interesting for others with other OS'ses so solutions for those are also welcome.
