3D Audio Playback
Both the "User" and "Advanced" editions of Rapture3D ship with a stand-alone player application for Higher Order Ambisonic (HOA) audio. This uses our core 3D Audio technology for exceptional 3D spatial imaging.
There are other ways to play back ambisonics with our software. Our game engines can play back material prepared in ambisonic formats, and our Pro Audio studio plugin ranges include a number of "decoders," which allow playback within your favourite Digital Audio Workstation.
This player is designed for Higher Order Ambisonic (HOA) content. It does not play mono, stereo or 5.1 material!
