The Spatial Audio Designer (SAD) enables mixing and monitoring any surround and 3D audio format with speakers or common headphones in any DAW.
Independently of the host DAWs buss structures, which are commonly limited to eight channels, the SAD enables monitoring and mixing all current and future audio formats. Stereo, 5.1, 7.1, 11.1 and 13.1 are just a mouse click away from each other. If no appropriate speaker system is available, the SAD provides a high quality, flexible and personally adjustable HEADPHONE SURROUND 3D speaker virtualization for standard headphones.
Furthermore the SAD can import panning and volume automation data. Hence an existing multi-channel 5.1 mix session is just minutes away from being a discrete 7.1 mix and maybe a day of evolving to a 13.1 mix for cinema, home or mobile entertainment application.
For exhibition and event applications the SAD is also available in special configurations to mix on format independent speaker arrays.
Besides all of that the HEADPHONE SURROUND 3D technology of the SAD opens the door into a complete new dimension of audio production. Format independent mixes with multiple speaker arrays using all three dimensions, in different distances and locations can be created parallel or in one mix. Making music, film, radio-play and game mixes are possible like they have never been heard before. Available right now, with any headphone on any audio device in the world - because technically it is a two channel stereo format.
