Positional (3D) sound in Qt C++



  • I want to use 3D sound from my C++ code, so I was really glad when I first saw a reference to QtMultimedia module, that turns out to be capable of 3D sound. But suddenly I can only find that exactly 3D sound functionality to be exposed exclusively for QML. As I can see here "Qt 5.4 > Qt Multimedia > Multimedia":http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/multimediaoverview.html#multimedia-recipes, there are C++ classes called AudioEngine and Sound. However, any given docs only show these types in QML (for instance if you click the link "AudioEngine":http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qml-qtaudioengine-audioengine.html in the bottom-right of the table).
    Am I missing something? I need a fast solution with 3D sound available to C++ code, like OpenAL, but if that is possible with Qt, that would be great.
