FAQs

dearVR AMBI MICRO handles first-order A-format Ambisonics and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd order Ambix Ambisonics B-format. If you want to integrate mono and stereo sources into Ambisonics, we’d suggest using the high-quality spatializer dearVR PRO.

We suggest using the Sennheiser AMBEO VR microphone as dearVR AMBI MICRO integrates perfectly, offering extended controls and additional features.

There are two use-cases: If you want to convert your recording done with the Sennheiser VR microphone from first-order A-format into B-format, you need to insert dearVR AMBI MICRO as the first plugin on the microphone’s track and choose the A-format input and the B-format output options.

If you use AMBI MICRO to monitor your Ambisonics mix on headphones, you need to insert dearVR AMBI MICRO on your master channel and choose the corresponding B-format input and a binaural output option.

We suggest using the dearVR HRTFs as they have the best resolution and, in our opinion, the best sound.

You’re producing an Ambisonics video that will be published on Facebook or YouTube?

dearVR AMBI MICRO enables you to preview your mix in real-time with the platform’s HRTFs to get the same impression the end-users will have when the video is published.
