Sonic Studio III

Sonic Studio now supports HRTF-based (head related transfer function) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The Sonic Studio GUI also offers a range of EQ options, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.

*A head-related transfer function is an audio algorithm derived from sound data recorded through a dummy head. Test tones are played from a spherical grid around the dummy head to obtain subtle changes in sounds that come from different directions. The results are combined into an algorithm that allows Sonic Studios virtual surround to process sound true to life.

**Please note Sonic Studio Link is available only in version 3.6 and later.
