The SPATIAL AUDIO DESIGNER ™ (SAD) is the market leading high performance pro audio tool for creating content and monitoring in surround and 3D. Uses are e.g. movies, music and games.
The SAD enables the mixing and monitoring of any surround or 3D format with speakers or standard headphones on any DAW.
Independently of the host DAW bus structures, which are commonly limited to eight channels, the SAD enables the monitoring and mixing of all current and future audio formats. Stereo, 5.1, 7.1, 11.1 and 13.1 are just a mouse click away from each other. If no appropriate loudspeaker system is available, the SAD provides a high quality, flexible and personally adjustable HEADPHONE SURROUND 3D™ speaker virtualization for standard headphones.
Furthermore, the SAD can import panning and volume automation data. Hence, an existing multi-channel 5.1 mix session is just minutes away from being a discrete 7.1 mix and maybe a day of evolving to a 13.1 Auro-3D® mix for cinema, home or mobile entertainment application.
For exhibition and event applications, the SAD is also available in special configurations to mix on format independent speaker arrays.
Besides all this, the HEADPHONE SURROUND 3D™ technology of the SAD opens the door into a completely new dimension of audio production. Format independent mixes with multiple speaker arrays using all three dimensions, at different distances and locations, can be created parallel or in one mix. Making music, film, radio-play and game mixes like they have never been heard before is now possible. Available right now, with any headphones on any audio device in the world – because technically it is a two channel stereo format.
Limited to Headphone Surround 3D and 8 discrete channel outputs.
