Select in dearVR PRO one out of 26 different loudspeaker formats and immediately start mixing in e.g. 5.1.7 or 13.1. You want to deliver your mix in multiple formats? Start mixing in e.g. binaural, TOA Ambisonics or 7.1.4. At a later stage, change to e.g. 5.1 by just switching the output format in dearVR PRO.

You don’t want to invest in a 13.1 loudspeaker setup? Choose the binaural output to prepare your session on your headphone before easily switching to the final loudspeaker format.


Benefit from the dearVR VHSP technology simulating height channel loudspeaker signal information on flat loudspeaker setups.

You want to deliver 7.1.4 and 7.1? Start mixing in 7.1.4 using the four real height speakers. Change the output format to 7.1 and benefit from the virtual height simulation.


Run more instances of dearVR PRO due to performance enhancements of up to 60%. Working with large channel counts in complex situations was never that efficient.
