No, Sonar works with any headset or audio device connected to your PC.
GG is our new software hub where you can find all your favorite SteelSeries applications such as Moments & Engine, with more to come in the future. 😉
No, Sonar is a PC only software at the moment. So any setting, effect or feature applied in Sonar will not apply when gaming with your console. Engine is the best place to apply settings that will work on console as well.
If you are using your headset on PC we advise you to use Sonar, as it offers many more audio tuning capabilities and features. Engine is a good place for console gaming and mobile.
If you don’t want to use an app such as Moments, you can turn it off in the settings. When turned off it will not affect your performance and will not run in the background.
The same goes for SteelSeries Engine. If you don’t have a SteelSeries device plugged in, the Engine application inside GG will not be running in the background.
To turn Moments off you can do either of the following:
1. Click the dropdown menu above the Moments gallery and turn off “Gameplay capture”
2. Go to Settings -> Capture and Sound -> Turn off “Allow Moments to capture while gaming”
