(1) Routing Matrix

The routing matrix gives an overview of the mapping between the plugin’s inputs from the DAW track to the virtual speaker internal outputs. The virtual speaker outputs are down-mixed to stereo using a virtual speaker processing algorithm.

Please take note that the plugin’s output to the DAW track itself is always stereo as the binaural processing is intended exclusively for use with headphones.

The meters above the fi rst row indicate the source levels of individual input channels.

(2) Speaker Mode

Specifies which virtual speaker configuration should be emulated. Available modes depend on the configuration of the track the plugin is inserted into, and comprise of one or more of the following:

(3) Space Preset

Selects between different spaces with subtly different colorations (Preset 1..3) or completely neutral (No Effect)

(4) Speaker Width

Controls the width between virtual speakers, expressed in degrees. The default is 60°, which corresponds to the recommended setting. This allows to narrow or broaden the stereo image.

(5) Angle Shift

Controls the angle between the listener and the centre of the virtual speakers. The default is 0°, which corresponds to the ideal listener position, giving a balanced image between channels.

(6) Setup Menu

Advanced settings to override default behavior, typically when using hosts that do not conform to the standards.


Override automatic track I/O specifications. HEar automatically adjusts its I/O configuration based on what the hosts reports to the plugin. Some hosts such as Logic do not report this correctly or do not support asymmetric I/O configurations In this case you have to do this manually and select amongst a number of choices of symmetric (N-to-N) and asymmetric I/O (N to stereo).


These are best left at their default in most cases, but can be changed if required:
