  1. Disabling the software mixer to use OpenAL instead also disables reverb.[3]


  2. 2.0 2.1 How To Get 3D Positional Audio (HRTF & Ambisonics) in Serious Sam Fusion 2017 - YouTube
  3. @Apocryph Wiki Master#3423 (I Drink Lava) on 3D Game Audio Discord server - last accessed on 2019-04-06
    "Just a heads up on Serious Sam Fusion 2017: disabling the Software Mixer to use OpenAL Soft's HRTF also seems to disable reverb. Parts that I know had reverb originally (like the opening platforming section in the 2nd Palenque level in TSE) were dry. I'll have to do more testing on this, but it's just something that's worth noting."
