Spatial Audio Designer In-One
Binaural monitoring plug-in
The SAD In-One is a kind of “quick and dirty” stand-alone version of the SAD, made for discrete track and bus binaural virtualization in DAW projects.
|In-One (single plug-in for instant binaural track and bus processing).
This product is included in both the SAD Producer and Producer Plus, handling up to to eight different sources of audio input and binaural output.
It’s that simple: insert the SAD In-One into a DAW track or bus to hear playback on the virtual loudspeaker system of an existing professional studio environment.
Get easy access to high-quality loudspeaker systems and reliable mixes from bedrooms, kitchens and cafés. On-the-go music producers can continue to work on studio mixes and audio can quickly be crosschecked in a variety of different environments.
Monitoring 5.1 / 7.1 surround sound can be done quickly and reliably, even if no actual loudspeaker systems are available. Simply insert the SAD In-One into the master bus of a DAW or video workstation, and it’ll deliver instant binaural processing capabilities on Channels 1 & 2.
This binaural output can also be recorded as an extra “virtual 3D headphone track” for online, Blu-Ray or DVD playback. And because it’s all done in real-time, the SAD In-One binaural output can be used for live streaming as well.
Immersive DAW mixes can also be monitored in the absence of a real immersive monitoring environment. Virtual dub stages allow for the pre- and post-production of film projects as well as presenting work to clients online.
Finally, the SAD In-One can be used to create exciting effects for different audio sources in stereo mixes for headphone applications. Each source can be placed into a separate binaural environment and then be mixed and mastered in regular stereo productions, keeping the binaural effect.
