PS4 Users Will Now Experience Crystal Clear Game Audio and Enhanced
In-Game Communication via USB on Katana with Its Advanced Sound Blaster Processor, 24-bit DAC, Virtual 5.1 Surround, and Tri-Amplified 5-Driver Design
Creative Technology Ltd today announced that its Award-Winning Under-Monitor Sound System, the Sound BlasterX Katana, now supports USB audio connectivity with all Sony PS4 console variants.
The updated support allows PS4 users to enjoy cinematic audio performance via USB delivered by the Katana for all their gaming content, including popular titles such as Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Horizon: Zero Dawn, as well as highly anticipated upcoming titles such as Star Wars Battlefront 2, Call of Duty WWII, NB2K18 and Destiny 2.
On top of that, users will enjoy an enhanced in-game communication experience that allows them to enjoy a full suite of noise-reduction and voice morphing technologies made possible by Katana’s built-in advanced Sound Blaster processor. Previously, Katana users could only connect to their PS4 via optical connection with a separate mic connection to the PS4’s controller – all without the benefit of noise reduction and voice morphing enhancements. Also, users can look forward to accessing these technologies on-the-fly while Katana is connected to a PS4, from the convenience of an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, with an updated version of the Sound Blaster Connect App – which is slated to be released by end-October 2017 on the App Store and Google Play.
USB audio support is also particularly convenient for users of the latest Sony PS4 Slim console to enjoy digital audio. With USB audio support, PS4 Slim users will not have to purchase a separate optical-out adapter to enjoy digital audio through the Katana.
