Cans2Conesv4 is a headphone-to-speaker emulator that can help a listener make better mix decisions when monitoring through headphones. Cans2Cones reduces the "super-stereo" effect of headphones by applying 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. This is not the same as simple panning or width reduction as it produces an actual sense of distance and size to the emulated speakers. 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.
Cans2Cones includes 3 "Quick Select" presets for the most common speaker sizes and positions - "Near-field", "Mid-field" and "Far-field" - as well as a "subwoofer" control that extends the response of all speakers to full bandwidth. Custom distances can be selected over a 0.5ft to 15ft range with the Distance slider control.
Cans2Cones is a 64-bit plugin available as VST2, VST3 and AAX for Windows PC and VST2, VST3, AAX and AU formats for Mac OS 10.11+ on Intel and Apple Silicon. Free 14-day trial demos are available for download at the RJ Studios website.
