Is this supported by Windows XP which is the current OS I'm using?

I currently cannot switch to 7 since my computer cannot support 7 and I don't have the funds currently

It's probably just a game-wide thing, except maybe mac.

Will there be dynamic music? If so, what will trigger it? Champion kills? Team fights?

To explain this a bit further. The "Listener" (Think of this as a virtual microphone in game that helps determine which sounds should be played in which speaker), is currently very low to the ground. This is also where all the sounds play, which means all audio is essentially on the same plane.

With the new audio engine we have moved this upward quite a bit to give better stereo imaging and also allow players to utilize surround sound sound playback.

2nd Edit:

Just to clarify so I don't add to further confusion. (I'm really excited about this as we've been working on it for quite a while, and I may have mis-understood you're question before replying u̶n̶d̶e̶r̶s̶t̶a̶n̶d̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶i̶t̶ ).

In General the overall stereo imaging of the game should be a lot better. This won't fix every issue you run into with camera movements, but should address a lot of the Speaker to Speaker "Hopping" of sounds.
Are people going to be able to sound ***** ganks from a mile away?

This audio engine is really cool. I would like that you guys address the issue about high end graphic cards causing big fps drop like you said here http://forums.euw.leagueoflegends.co....php?t=1658287
Which is causing too much stress as of now.

Thank you guys, keep up the good work.

Basically how much of a performance gain are we talking?
Very early testing shows that memory usage from Audio is reduced by something like 40-60MB.
It's not huge, but could at least help with some low end machines.
