This Driver has Full OpenAL support, Surround sound, Louder volume, audio console functional, Microsoft enhancements (These enhancements allow highly advanced Bass Management Control, Speaker Fill similar to CMSS, but MS sounds better, Room Correction and Loudness Equalization) and same XP´sound quality.
Eax works with Alchemy

1-Uninstall old drivers
2-Run setup, ignore whql message, instal the driver, reboot
3-Install Audio Console reboot, this is important for surround sound, if you don't install the audio console the sound only passes through two front speakers
4-If you hear distorted sound, change speakers to 4 or 5.1; or change sample rate option in panel control, 48000hz 16bit works for me, if you can´t hear any sound after installing the driver or changing speaker setting, mute and unmute the volume in windows mixer and this should fix the problem.
5-The sounds in vista enviroment have only two channel, test multichannel sounds in games like Bioshock or Prey

Note: For multichannel sounds in windows vista, you will have to enable Speaker Fill option in the control panel - sound enhancements setting.

I tested multichannel 4 and 5.1 sound successfully in the Bioshock demo.

Instruction for winamp and other players:
copy dsound.dll´s ALchemy directory to Winamp folder. enjoy
