Coronal Audio Arcade Tech Preview v2.0.0 VST AAX MAC [FREE]
VST AAX MAC /// 30Mb
ARCADE is a patented spatial audio codec that allows encoding scene-based 3D audio over stereo with no additional metadata required. It allows encoding sources with height in a fully spherical manner. Its decoder is virtually able to decode to any 3D or 2D audio format, for example first-order or higher-order spherical harmonics ( FOA, HOA), VBAP, Surround, Binaural with or without head-tracking etc. The decoder also works as an upmixer for any stereo content, to any of the formats it can decode to.
We are very pleased to announce the update of Tech Preview DAW plugins to version 2.0.0, with improved encoding and binaural rendering quality. Consisting of three VST/AAX plugins for macOS, the ARCADE Tech Preview suite is still available for free!
