Main Features

Dive into the most common spatial audio formats

Enhanced spatial music production

dearVR MUSIC renders high-quality 3D audio for the most common immersive audio productions.

Use the binaural output to listen to your mixes in mind-blowing 3D audio on any earbuds and headphones. The 4-channel Ambisonics format outputs spatial audio for YouTube 360° video soundtracks.

You can also use dearVR MUSIC's beautiful virtual environments as conventional reverbs in stereo format, doubling their music production usefulness.

Binaural Panner
Create a 360° music experience

Binaural Panner

Place your listener in the center of the sound! Drag your mouse around using the plugin’s graphical XYZ-pad to position audio sources anywhere in the immersive soundstage - behind or in front of the listener, above or below their head, to the left or right, closer or farther away. With dearVR MUSIC, the sound is no longer inside your head but out in the environment where it belongs.

Experience true-to-life 3D imaging and depth

Virtual acoustics tuned for creative music production

dearVR MUSIC lets you choose between 18 versatile virtual acoustic environments perfectly suited for music production, including a concert hall, church, stage, drum room, and many more.

Place your tracks in a realistic, three-dimensional world where your singers and musicians sit or roam around in real-time.

Change the shape, dimensions, and texture of your environment using controls that adjust its size, damping, and balance of early reflections and diffuse reverb.

Virtual acoustics tuned for creative music production
Tonal balance in binaural processing


The Clarity algorithm allows you to minimize colorations resulting from the binaural rendering and individually adjust an optimal balance between the externalized spatial perception and the overall tonal preservation. This can be especially useful for musical instruments and the human voice and paves the way for a barrier-free transfer to regular stereo loudspeakers.
