Enrich your stereo mix with an immersive space

Immersive audio technology is rapidly moving to the forefront of the audio industry, and is shaping the way sound is created and consumed. Meanwhile, immersive audio production is now focused on more than technical functionality, and has developed to offer creators a whole new dimension of creativity within music and audio. 

At Dear Reality, we have been part of these technological developments since its beginning, giving creators total control over the spatialization of sounds in a 3D space with our pioneering plugin dearVR PRO. In this article, we are excited to introduce you to our bundle of tools for creative music and audio production - dearVR MUSIC and dearVR MIX, which open new worlds and dimensions for creators, even in the classic stereo format! 

Improved Stereo Mixes and New Creative 3D Possibilities with dearVR MUSIC

dearVR MUSIC turns any DAW into a creative 3D audio powerhouse.  This audio spatializer plugin is designed to free users from the limitations of crowded stereo mixes. It centers around 18 true-to-life virtual acoustic environments for music production, such as a concert hall, church, stage, drum room, and many more. These spaces are paired with a 3D panning interface, letting you sculpt the spatiality of mixes like nothing before.

Enhance your stereo mixes with dearVR MUSIC’s built-in spatial reverb effects and place your listeners in the center of the sound. Go beyond the limitations of stereo sound and spatialize your tracks in a realistic, three-dimensional binaural or Ambisonic world that is  perfectly delivered to headphone users.

Next-Level Stereo Productions with dearVR MIX

With dearVR MIX, engineers and content producers can rely on what they hear when mixing, and be sure that their mixes translate perfectly to any other sound system or location, whether on the road or in the studio. Based on advanced spatial audio technology, dearVR MIX turns any studio headphones into world-class stereo mix rooms with carefully designed acoustics. This virtual monitoring plugin revolultionises your mixing workflow, so you can test your mixes in a range of environments without needing to leave your chair.  

Place yourself in the sweet spot of your optimal mixing environment with spatial headphone compensation - a unique technology that counter-balances audio content to neutralize any imbalances found in headphones for transparent and accurate monitoring. 

Based on Dear Reality’s proprietary virtual acoustics technology, MIX enables you to create mixes with a realistic perception of direction, distance, reflections, and reverb.
