Gain the gaming edge with Sonic Radar!
Modern games are more than graphics – precise audio positioning gives gamers the distinct edge over enemies. That’s why Xonar U7 Echelon Edition includes Sonic Radar, a unique ASUS technology that visualizes and enhances in-game sounds, giving you a vital edge in first-person shooters.
Fire up your favorite game and Sonic Radar displays a ‘radar’ HUD (head-up display) that pinpoints in-game actions relative to your position — so you’ll know exactly where you are on the battlefield and what’s happening around you!
There’s even more to Sonic Radar. Multiple radar-enhancers can be enabled in order to visualize and boost specific sounds such as footsteps, gunshots and call-outs. Sounds are plotted on the 360-degree HUD, even when there’s no clear line of sight, so invisibility is no barrier to pinpointing opponents — giving you a distinct advantage over other players!
What’s more, Sonic Radar’s on-screen appearance and position is completely customizable, so you can make it work just the way you want, with whatever game you want!
Take complete control of your audio with Sonic Studio Pro!
Xonar U7 Echelon Edition features the latest Sonic Studio Pro software suite, so you have full control over every aspect of the audio output — from equalization (EQ) to 7.1-speaker level-balancing.
Use the intuitive point-and-click interface to activate preset audio profiles to suit different audio environments, and to fine-tune plug-in Dolby® Home Theater 4 settings.
Experience incredible input-noise reduction from Perfect Voice!
Unlike noise-reduction technologies that rely on inverse-phase-based noise cancellation, Xonar U7 Echelon Edition’s Perfect Voice technology uses advanced algorithms to separate ambient noise from speech. The result is crystal-clear in-game voice communication, even in a noisy environment such as a LAN party — so you can be heard no matter what’s going on around you!
Love your levels with dedicated mic and master volume controls! Dedicated controls allow you to quickly adjust master and microphone volume without pausing games or going into software menus — so you can tweak audio levels without interrupting your game! The master volume controls even doubles as an instant switch for selecting between headphone output (front panel) and speakers (back panel) — convenience with a click!
