So, if the input is stereo we propose the traditional options, that are:
- Mono (In order to share a headset with someone for example)
- Stereo (Original)
- Reverse Stereo
Then if the input is > stereo, we propose:
- Direct (for OSes that can't setup passthrough)
- Original (PCM)
- Headphones (to use spatialaudio binauralizer)
- Mono (because, we still want to have all input channels mixed into each speaker/hearplug)
Should we propose:
- Stereo (for same reason than Mono)
- 5.1 (if input is > 5.1)
