Start mixing VR games in headset

Control Wwise* in VR

Audio production for VR games can be tiresome, as today’s workflow requires audio designers to frequently switch between previewing their work in-headset and making changes on the desktop.

This past year, Dear Reality has worked directly with a major game studio to improve their production workflow for a forthcoming AAA VR title by providing audio designers in-headset control of Audiokinetic Wwise sessions.

We’re excited to share the result, dearVR SPATIAL CONNECT for Wwise & unity, with more people and gather feedback from the community. Apply for our exclusive technology preview program and start controlling Wwise sessions directly in Unity’s* VR preview.

Reduce context switching

Intuitive mixing

Mixing in a VR headset not only reduces context switching but also enables the game audio designer to work with 3D space more intuitively by working in context.

dearVR SPATIAL CONNECT for Wwise & Unity allows you to visualize the location of active sound sources, control attenuation curves, share set parameters, make adjustments to mixers, and more – all in Unity’s headset preview.

Let’s shape the next level of interactive audio production together
