RJ Studios has released Cans2Cones version v2.0.0, a complete revision to the headphones-to-speaker emulator with an improved algorithm and added features. Cans2Cones is designed to help a listener make better mixes when monitoring through headphones.
Cans2Cones applies Interaural Time and Amplitude Difference (ITD and ITA) information to a stereo signal that emulates the distance and spacing of loudspeakers in a treated room. A special feature of Cans2Cones is a dynamic de-compression control which helps to overcome the compressed "in your head" sound that can occur due to the close proximity of headphone drivers to the eardrums.
Can2Cones cones v2 now includes a "Quick Select" menu that allows rapid comparison of the various speaker types and positions as well as a "subwoofer" control that extends the bandwidth of any "speaker" to full range.
Price: $14.95. More information and downloadable demo versions are available at the company's web site.
