VISR Production Suite

The first open-source tools for producing and reproducing object-based audio.

The VISR Production Suite is the first open-source set of DAW plugins for producing and reproducing object-based audio.

It consists of an audio object editor to transform your tracks into audio objects, a scene editor to manipulate the whole object-based audio scene, and integrated renderers to reproduce the audio scene on various loudspeaker layouts, sound bars, or headphones.

What you can do with the VISR Production Suite:

  • Create an object-based session
  • Spatialise and control your audio objects
  • Easy binaural content creation with different sets of HRIR and BRIRs in SOFA format
  • Head tracking and head orientation compensation capabilities, suitable for VR
  • Create loudspeaker layout agnostic spatial audio content and render it for different loudspeaker systems with just one click
  • Exploit JUCE framework and the VISR, a modular open-source framework for audio processing
