The Spatial Sound Card (SSC) Pro is a software-based, virtual sound card. Professional monitoring of audio content usually requires complex, high-quality speaker installations, for which both budget and space are needed. The Spatial Sound Card Pro enables monitoring of stereo and surround up to 7.1 using binaural loudspeaker virtualizations with regular headphones on the computer.

The Spatial Sound Card Pro is inserted into audio source software, operating system, and audio hardware. The more than 60 binaural room virtualizations originate from a constantly growing number of high-end studios and dub stages like the ARRI Stage One, MSM Munich, and others. The technology used in the SSC was used on major Blu-Ray releases (e.g. The Expendables I -III, Fifth Element, and Kraftwerk 3D).

To optimize the virtualization, the SSC provides parameters to customize the frequency curve of the used headphones. Presets for over 40 well-known headphone models* are included, more will follow constantly.

The Spatial Sound Card Pro works with all applications that support stereo and multichannel audio output. These include media players like VLC and FLAC-Player as well as video/audio workstations, games, and 360/VR applications. The SSC is recommended for media professionals from the audio, music, 360/VR, video, games, and multi-media domain as well as for agencies and companies with workstations that need high-quality audio monitoring.

The “Stereo” version is limited to a maximum of two (“stereo”) channels for monitoring.
With the “Standart” version you can handle up to 8 channels (“7.1″ Surround”).
