For example, I'm sure I'm not the only person with a analog 5.1 speaker system that I plug headphones into... they have a hack right on the right front speaker to do this. But of course the head phones are 2 channel and I don't hear the 5.1.
So I want to create an application to rapidly switch the main speakers from 5.1 to 2 speaker settings.
What API do I need to research? Should I be trying to interface with the control panel or going at the Audio API.
