Binaural Surround - 6.1
This plugin takes a surround mix prepared for a 6.1 system and converts it to 3D stereo to be listened to on headphones.
The 3D aspects of the stereo are synthesised using HRTF data. This models how sound from different directions is changed as it passes around the head.
The channel ordering used is:
|1||Front Left||Front Left|
|2||Front Centre||Front Right|
|3||Front Right||Front Centre|
|5||Surround Centre||Side Left|
|6||Surround Right||Side Right|
The low frequency effect channel is not used.
The plugin is available in the Binaural Surround plugin library.
Two modes are supported, "Inferred" and "Virtual". Generally, "Inferred" is recommended.
|Inferred||This mode is optimised for use with material that has been mixed using conventional panning techniques, such as equal-power panning or VBAP. The approach produces smooth transitions when sounds pass between speaker locations.|
|Virtual||This mode simply places each of the main (non-LFE) audio channels in their appropriate speaker direction. This can be worth trying when the mix has not been put together by conventional panning and the channels have a complex phase relationship.|
