Binaural Encoding Tool
HEar provides faithful reproduction of a stereo or surround mix with a pair of conventional stereo headphones. It relies on proven technology to model the various phenomenons that occur when playing back audio material through a loudspeaker system.

This allows monitoring a full surround mix in situations when a surround-capable environment is not available. Another typical use of HEar is when doing precise checking of a mix. It's more convenient with headphones on, as these provide asurgical and very detailed rendering of the audio.

HEar can also prove very useful in a studio environment, and whenever noise isolation is a concern, as it helps achieving a more realistic sound environment.

Product Features

  • Routing Matrix for mapping between the plugins inputs from the DAW track to the virtual speaker internal outputs
  • Speaker Mode specifies the emulated virtual speaker configuration
  • Speaker Width to control the width between virtual speakers, expressed in degrees, which allows for narrowing or broadening the stereo image.
  • Angle Shift to control the angle between the listener and the center of the virtual speakers
