Wave Arts, Inc. has developed WaveSurround in conjunction with Human Machine Interfaces, Inc., a developer of high performance audio API's and applications including the InMotion 3D Audio Producer. WaveSurround greatly enhances the listening experience by placing the listener "inside" the stereo mix. The surround field may be adjusted by simply moving virtual speakers around the listener.
"Virtual surround technology allows listeners to experience a much larger sound field from a standard set of stereo loudspeakers," said Nick Skrepetos, C.E.O. of Human Machine Interfaces. "By enhancing the quality of MP3 files, the user is rewarded with an immersive and compelling listening experience on their desktop."
"We are very excited to be part of the MP3 revolution that is sweeping the industry," said Dr. Bill Gardner, Ph.D., C.E.O. of Wave Arts. "The WaveSurround plugin will set a new mark of excellence and performance for MP3 enhancement technology."
The technology featured in the WaveSurround plugin is the result of extensive research and development by Wave Arts over the past ten years. The plugin features state-of-the-art signal processing techniques including HRTF binaural processing and sophisticated cross-talk cancellation technology.
A demonstration version of the WaveSurround plugin is available for immediate download from www.wavearts.com. After 4 hours of processing audio, it must be authorized for continued use. The authorization fee is $9.95.
