3D Audio Playback
Higher Order Ambisonic Playback
This is self-contained software, unlike our professional VST plugins for third order ambisonic (O3A) decoding and Rapture3D Advanced VST decoder which are run within other studio software, or the 3D audio playback facilities available in Rapture3D Universal.
This player is designed for Higher Order Ambisonic (HOA) content. It does not play mono, stereo or 5.1 material!
