Manufacturer's Description from FLUX

HEar - Binaural Encoding Tool

HEar provides faithful reproduction of a stereo or surround mix with a pair of conventional stereo headphones. It relies on proven technology to model the various phenomena that occur when playing back audio material through a loudspeaker system.

 

This allows monitoring a full surround mix in situations when a surround-capable environment is not available or practical. Another typical use of HEar is doing precise checking of a mix, which is convenient with headphones as these provide a ‘surgical’ and very detailed, microscope-like rendering of the audio. HEar can also prove very useful in a project studio context, and whenever noise isolation is a concern, as it helps achieving a more realistic sound environment.

 

 

Binaural technology

Binaural technology encompasses methods for recording, processing, synthesizing and reproducing sound that are specifically designed to preserve tridimensional localisation properties.

 

In order to mimic the impression of a sound originating from a given incidence, it is sufficient to filter a mono signal, which on its own lacks any kind of spatial information, with both left and right HRTF filters. This constitutes the foundation of binaural synthesis.

 

Please note that the resulting signal is only meant to be listened to with headphones, and isn’t designed for a conventional stereo loudspeaker setup.

About Manufacturer

Flux:: sound and picture development is a French company involved in pro audio and picture development. We're a new player in the plug-in business. Why founding a new company into this over-crowded domain? We, Flux:: people, believe there is always a place for excellence. Our design is focused on the human element. Senses are bridges between reality and consciousness, between the real world and the imaginary one. We have chosen the best for ears and eyes to free your creativity. We are also aware of the productions short time demand, that's why, every Flux:: plug-in feature a morphing slider between presets that allows users an ultra-fast operation even for plug-ins including many parameters. We haven't chosen between simplicity and sophistication. We think, you need both.

Specifications

Processing Specifications

 

Virtual head

This plugin relies on HRTF filter measurements made using a KEMAR (Knowles Electronics Manikin For Acoustic Research) dummy head and torso simulation. This type of manikin was conceived during the 1970’s for conducting acoustics experiments using a model with anthropometric dimensions equivalent to that of an average human listener.

 

Virtual speakers

The audio input is routed internally to virtual speakers, through a routing matrix. These represent the emulated loudspeaker setup configuration.

 

 

HEar provides:

  • Up to 8 channels Input/Output.
  • 64-bits internal floating point processing.
  • Sampling rate up to 384 kHz DXD (Pyramix DSP based).
