Introducing dearVR PRO 2

As the demand for spatial audio solutions that captivate and immerse audiences has never been higher, spatial audio software solutions enable engineers and musicians to dive into the immersive audio field reasonably and efficiently. dearVR PRO 2 stands at the forefront of this audio revolution, providing the user with a sophisticated yet easy-to-use toolset to craft spatially rich and emotional soundscapes.

"Simulating distance in spatial audio productions is essential when creating truly authentic 3D spaces. Just one spherical plane with a fixed distance around the listener will not do the trick. dearVR PRO 2’s distance simulation unlocks this natural depth perception for multi-channel formats and lets the user place the sound seamlessly even behind speakers.”

Christian Sander, co-founder of Dear Reality

dearVR PRO 2’s true-to-life early reflections and its 46 virtual acoustic presets – from a small car to a large church – are ideally suited for professional music and postproduction needs, enhancing any audio production with an accurate perception of direction, distance, reflections, and reverb. The freshly added filter modules, each consisting of a high- and low-cut filter, expand the versatility and reduce unwanted rumbling or harsh frequencies in the early reflections or late reverb section.

The output section of dearVR PRO 2 features 35 multi-channel loudspeaker formats, including the latest 9.0.4, 9.1.4, and 9.0.6 Pro Tools® DAW formats. Furthermore, the all-in-one spatializer offers Ambisonics - up to third order - and binaural outputs, making dearVR PRO 2 the perfect tool for advanced XR productions.

With dearVR PRO 2 we follow our easy-to-use approach, as we enable you to concentrate on what matters most - the audio - by reducing unnecessary menus or disruptive overlays. The plugin provides direct access to the audio’s position using the graphical XYZ-pad in 360° - placing audio behind or in front, above or below, to the left or right, closer or farther away was never easier.

The new stereo input feature expands this concept to stereo tracks, enabling direct access to the stereo width and making the plugin the perfect spatializer for stem productions.

"Recording audio with stereo miking techniques is still common practice, even for the creation of advanced three-dimensional experiences. dearVR PRO 2 helps the engineer to position instruments and ambiances that have been recorded in stereo in a spatial sound field.“

Felix Lau, Product Owner of Dear Reality

Besides the already established connection to our VR controller plugin, dearVR SPATIAL CONNECT, dearVR PRO 2 can now be connected to any third-party OSC head-tracker. Using the included SPATIAL CONNECT ADAPTER, which can be installed during dearVR PRO 2’s installation, you benefit from head tracking control and a much more natural way to judge immersive productions.

Moreover, dearVR PRO 2 features of course a re-sizable user interface, received updated colors, and a streamlined layout. Furthermore, you benefit from internal performance improvements like reduced CPU usage and the latest Dear Reality license manager.

There’s one thing that we kept the same: Our 14-day trial, which enables you to test our plugins as you desire. Click here to try dearVR PRO 2 by yourself, as words can only do so much justice to our powerful Spatial Audio all-in-one solution.

As of 2024, spatial audio formats dominate the field of professional audio production, a trend that shows no signs of waning. Not only will Apple's Vision Pro accelerate its proliferation, but developments like AMBEO 2-Channel Spatial Audio show that spatial audio formats can seamlessly establish themselves as standard formats in AAA media production and that spatial audio is finding its way into "usually" stereo contexts.
