Binauralizer Studio, new tool to get 3D mixes ready to ship for headphones

Noise Makers Binauralizer Studio

Binauralizer Studio is a spatial audio plugin (VST, AU, AAX) to convert surround tracks (up to 22.2) to binaural 3D audio. It conserves all spatial information contained in the original multichannel track, and translates it into binaural for listening over headphones.

Several input formats are accepted, including stereo, 5.1, 7.1, along with new immersive formats (with height) such as 7.1.2, 7.1.6, ... up to 22.2. For each format, several channel orders are available, leading to a versatile binaural downmixer.

Binauralizer Studio uses Head Related Transfer Functions (HRTF) for binaural processing. Precise measurements of the Neumann KU 100 dummy head (credit Audio Group TH Köln) have been carefully modelled and included in the plugin. Custom HRTF and Binaural Room Impulse Responses (BRIR) can also be loaded in the SOFA format, for personalized binaural downmixes.


  • Multiple standard input formats (stereo, 5.1, 7.1.2, ... up to 22.2)
  • Output format : binaural 3D audio
  • SOFA importer for custom HRTF and BRIR
  • Sampling frequency up to 192 kHz
  • Solo mode to hear individual input channels
  • Option to low-pass filter LFE channel

Binauralizer Studio is available in DEMO mode for Mac (AAX, AU, VST) and PC (AAX, VST).

Binauralizer Studio does not replace our native binaural panner Binauralizer. It complements it to handle massive multichannel inputs. A new version of the panner is currently in development and should be ready quite soon.

Binauralizer Studio intro price is 89 euros until May 31 (regular price 149 euros).
