The Future of Audio Production in VR and AR
Dear Reality announces dearVR Spatial Connect, a completely new workflow to mix spatial audio while being in VR & AR with any common Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) connected to HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.
As Unity and Unreal Engine bank on content creation while being in VR with their upcoming VR editor tools, it will become the workflow of the future. This applies for spatial audio, too. The dearVR Spatial Connect software enables any sound designer, musician or sound engineer to create immersive 3D audio content in VR.
Dear Reality Co-founder Achim Fell:
“If you want to mix for VR, you have to be in VR! dearVR Spatial Connect combines an enhanced workflow in VR with your common DAW and audio plugins.”
Dear Reality Co-founder Christian Sander:
“This is the world’s first audio production pipeline for mixing on a DAW while being in VR and transfer the mix directly to Unity. We are confident that this is the audio workflow of the future and are also working on an implementation of dearVR Spatial Connect to mix in Augmented Reality. Because content creation should take place in the medium itself.”
The novel workflow with HTC Vive or Oculus Rift enables intuitive positioning and mixing of sound objects directly with VR controllers, which is way more intuitive than putting things around with the mouse on a 2D screen. dearVR Spatial Connect closes the gap between any DAW and the VR world. All automation data written in the DAW can be exported as object-based audio to the Unity game engine for VR or 360° production. Additionally, scene based Ambisonic output formats for YouTube 360 or Facebook 360 are supported.
Dear Reality will release dearVR Spatial Connect in Fall 2017. To participate in the upcoming beta testing, sign up for our newsletter!
