Real-Time Auralization

Early reflections, caused by sound waves bouncing off their environment, provide crucial clues to a listener about where a sound is coming from. dearVR PRO’s Real-Time Auralization feature adjusts the timing and directionality of early reflections dynamically as you alter the acoustic characteristics of the virtual environment or as you pan a sound around in space.

FAQs

You can use dearVR PRO with any stereo or mono source. The spatializer works perfectly with regular microphones, direct signals, and virtual instruments. Just insert dearVR PRO as the last plugin in your plugin-chain and place the audio in a three-dimensional space.

dearVR PRO can produce Ambisonics signals from any mono or stereo audio source. 

To convert and monitor content already recorded in Ambisonics, such as the output of the Sennheiser AMBEO VR Mic, you can use our free plugin  dearVR AMBI MICRO.

The answer depends on your output format, but for the most part, no.

Binaural: you can listen to your binaural mix without any additional processing. Just plug in any standard pair of headphones. 

Multi-channel speaker output: Nothing additional necessary as long as you have an appropriate speaker setup, just route the output as appropriate. 

Don't have a multi-channel loudspeaker setup, or you want to check your mixes on the road? Use dearVR MONITOR to listen to all common speaker setups, from stereo up to 9.1.6, in a virtual mixing room using your headphones.

Ambisonics: You will need an additional plugin to listen to your mix, as Ambisonics always requires decoding. Fortunately, we make available for free dearVR AMBI MICRO which can easily render Ambisonics to binaural audio suitable for listening to on headphones. 

Yes, of course! Just contact us to upgrade to dearVR PRO.
