    Its basically funnel low-frequency audio into DS HD vibrator, by using OBS to mirror the audio. The old tutorial this was based on, requires you to plug headphones/speakers into DS. This new tutorial doesn't. Thus allowing you to keep using your surround sound system.

    You would need some apps and some special config, grab them here.

    A short video tutorial:



    Text tutorial:

    Here's what you need to do
    1. Plug dualsense to PC via USB

    2. Install EqualizerAPO and select Wireless Controller Speakers

    3. Download the EqualizerAPO config and replace the file in C:\Program Files\EqualizerAPO\config

    4. Press start, type configuration, and open configuration editor.

    5. Make sure your editor looks like this. Also make sure "device:" is set to "Spakers - wireless controller". If it looks different, close the editor, replace the config file again, then reboot.

    6. Install OBS and run it

    7. Create a new scene, lets name it dualsense

    8. click the gear icon in AUDIO MIXER

    9. click advanced audio properties

    10. on DESKTOP AUDIO, set the Audio Monitoring to "Monitor only (mute output)", then click close.

    11. click file, settings

    12. click Audio, and set MONITORING DEVICE to "Speakers (wireless controller)", then click OK.
    Now all games on steam will have normal vibration (if enabled) and HD haptic vibration.

    Troubleshooting
    - No HD vibration: Simply exit OBS and open OBS again.
    - Controller no longer work on steam: full computer reboot.

    Issues
    - only randomly work for non-steam games that's been added into steam
    - works with DS4windows app as long as the lightbar color didn't change from default pink/purple.
    - ALL low-frequency audio will be transformed into HD haptic vibration. So you will feel not only the rumbling of explosions but also the sweet subsonic music (especially Cyberpunk 2077 with its ridiculous variety of music with subsonic sounds).

    that's for VR would be amazing!

    btw dualsense also works for normal sound. so if not using equalizer filter, you can feel it when a piano key was pressed, etc.
    Feels awesome with "Deep stone lullaby"
