Fiedler Audio has announced the availability of a 3D spatial audio production plugin featuring a unique set of tools for next-generation audio production.

Whether for music, film/video, broadcast, games, or VR/AR, Spacelab opens up a revolutionary new way of putting all of your tracks into the right acoustic perspective.

Spacelab combines state-of-the-art reverb, 3D-panning, and spatialization in one plug-in – providing access to the world of 3D-audio for anyone on any DAW. The plug-in treats incoming audio as objects, which are positioned in the space of a virtual room. That room creates a stunning reverberation of these objects. The objects plus their reverb are then rendered to any desired output format, ranging from stereo up to any 3D-audio format, be it for speakers or for headphones via binaural rendering. Spacelab is fully compatible with Dolby Atmos and MPEG-H workflows.

Spacelab, of course, may be used as a classic send and return reverb effect, but, the object-based approach actually unlocks Spacelab’s full capabilities for workflow and for sound design. Providing easy control over object positioning and a virtual “listener”, which can be moved around freely, Spacelab facilitates creative workflows for music, film, broadcast, VR/AR, games, etc. Rendering the reverb for each object individually, depending on its position, creates a unique sonic landscape with amazing detail and realism which is impossible to generate with any channel-based reverb.

Spacelab comes in two iterations. To get going with great reverb and the possibility of expanding audio tracks into 3D audio objects, Spacelab Ignition is the perfect tool for music producers and any audio content creators that want to be able to position sounds in space, leaving the stereo field. Ignition supports up to 24 independent objects. Regularly priced 249 EUR / $279 USD, Spacelab Ignition is on sale for the intro price of 149 EUR / $169 USD until May 18th, 2022.

Priced 599 EUR / $669 USD, Spacelab Interstellar is the product of choice for up to 256 independent audio objects in space. The reverb section provides a unique spectral EQ to shape the reverb sounds in detail and also provides unique features like “spread in space” which lets the creator define the size of audio objects in space.

Spacelab for Windows and Mac supports VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats.
