WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:
1. A customizable sound generation layer for a digital computing device comprising:
an application program interface;
a sound generation hardware; and
a software driver for said sound generation hardware;
wherein said software driver is adapted to be customizable by a user.

2. The sound generation layer of claim 1, wherein software driver comprises a set of parameters used by said sound generation layer to render sounds, and said customizable software driver is adapted to allow said user to modify said set of parameters.

3. The sound generation layer of claim 2, wherein said customizable software driver is adapted to allow said user to modify said set of parameters so as to modify a degree of amplitude reduction for a sound that is associated with a measure of distance.

4. The sound generation layer of claim 2, wherein said customizable software driver is adapted to allow said user to modify said set of parameters so as to select whether a certain sound is amplified.

5. The sound generation layer of claim 2, wherein said customizable software driver is adapted to allow said user to modify said set of parameters so as to select whether a certain sound is reduced in volume.

6. The sound generation layer of claim 2, wherein said customizable software driver is adapted to allow said user to modify said set of parameters so as to select whether a certain set of sounds is amplified.

7. The sound generation layer of claim 2, wherein said customizable software driver is adapted to allow said user to modify said set of parameters so as to select whether a certain set of sounds is reduced in volume.

8. The sound generation layer of claim 3, further comprising a graphical user interface adapted to enable said user modification.

9. The sound generation layer of claim 8, wherein such graphical user interface comprises a radar-type interface, and wherein said user is graphically represented in a center of a ring that can be expanded or contracted graphically using an input device.

10. The sound generation layer of claim 8, wherein such graphical user interface comprises a counter, and wherein said counter corresponds to a distance with respect to which said user desires to hear sounds within a range of volumes or a range of amplifications.

11. A method for providing an enhanced 3D audio experience to a user comprising:
providing a customizable sound generation layer comprising:
an application program interface;
a sound generation hardware;
a software driver for said sound generation hardware, wherein said software driver is adapted to be customizable by a user, said software driver comprising a set of parameters used by said sound generation layer to render sounds; and
customizing said software driver based upon input from said user.

12. The method of claim 11, further comprising modifying said set of parameters based upon an input from said user.

13. The method of claim 12, wherein said modifying comprises modification to a degree of amplitude reduction for a sound that is associated with a measure of distance.

14. The method of claim 12, wherein said modifying comprises selection of whether a certain sound is amplified.
