Noise Makers has announced the release of Binauralizer Studio, new tool to get 3D mixes ready to ship for headphones.

Binauralizer Studio is a spatial audio plugin to convert surround tracks (up to 22.2) to binaural 3D audio. It conserves all spatial information contained in the original multichannel track, and translates it into binaural for listening over headphones.

Several input formats are accepted, including stereo, 5.1, 7.1, along with new immersive formats (with height) such as 7.1.2, 7.1.6, … up to 22.2. For each format, several channel orders are available, leading to a versatile binaural downmixer.

Binauralizer Studio uses Head Related Transfer Functions (HRTF) for binaural processing. Precise measurements of the Neumann KU 100 dummy head (credit Audio Group TH Köln) have been carefully modelled and included in the plugin. Custom HRTF and Binaural Room Impulse Responses (BRIR) can also be loaded in the SOFA format, for personalized binaural downmixes.
