Surround sound stops working in a game after installing new GPU

Discussion created by walorda on Sep 11, 2019

As the title says my surround sound stops working properly after starting a game (The directions are completely wrong), this happened after i installed my new 5700 XT. i did a windows reset and reinstalled my drivers for Creative sound Blaster Z sound card , disabled onboard HD audio, disabled amd audio drivers in device manager: sound,video game controllers. I only have the playback device sound blaster Z in windows audio which should be correct. My monitor has an speaker as well but its disabled. i am using a Display port cable.

 

Everything works fine when i start windows but the moment i Join a game in apex legends my surround sound is completely wrong and off with all directions(like it changes something when i join a game because after i quit the game it is still wrong).
