By making your headphones behave a bit more like loudspeakers, the CanOpener Studio crossfeed algorithm allows you to recreate, on headphones, the rich sonic experience of listening to high-end speakers in a finely tuned room. Combined with a gorgeous equalizer and serious monitoring controls, CanOpener Studio is great for tracking — allowing performers to get the perfect headphone mix, and it's also equally useful on the master output — to help correct or enhance your monitoring environment:

  • Proven Goodhertz crossfeed algorithm.
  • Baxandall treble & bass equalizer, borrowed from Tone Control.
  • Extensive monitoring features: Mono, Flip L/R, Polarity, Dim, Balance.
  • Soft Start: Gently starts playback, avoiding loud transients.

Crossfeed — Less is more

CanOpener Studio takes a less-is-more approach: fix the bad things about headphones with as little coloration or alteration as possible. Rather than emulate a specific studio control room or loudspeaker setup (along with all its flaws), the CanOpener crossfeed algorithm uses an idealized loudspeaker & room as its guide and gives you the control to use as much or as little of it as you need.

"CanOpener conjures speakers from your headphones."

— Damon Kurkowski, Pitchfork.
