About

Dear Reality is a German software company that specializes in spatial audio technology and Virtual Acoustics. With a strong background in sound engineering, the founders of Dear Reality have delivered on their vision to provide the best sounding 3-D audio technology to all kinds of next-generation audio production environments. They are supported by an excellent team of sound designers, software developers and game designers.

The dearVR 3D audio reality engine enables ultra-realistic acoustic virtualization. Compatible with any pair of headphones, it creates a realistic, three-dimensional sound space around the listener. Just as in a real-world soundscape, one will hear sound sources with a genuine perception of directional reference, distance and room acoustics.

By using a simple preset selector, users can virtualize all kinds of acoustic settings – from a small car to a huge cathedral – with in-depth realism. No other 3-D audio technology offers this kind of ultra-realistic acoustic simulation so easily. With dearVR plugins, the achieved realism and spatial impression for the listener is outstanding.

Easy-to-integrate software plugins based on the dearVR engine cover a whole range of platforms for all kinds of media production needs. Use it on any DAW, game engine or audio middleware to work on virtual reality, augmented reality, or mixed reality applications. From entertainment applications like games or 360° videos, to enhanced music production for headphones, dearVR is ready to be your all-in-one spatial audio solution.

    I can count on one hand the number of VR and Ambisonic plugins that I actually want to use, and that list got smaller because dearVR just replaced three of them. It’s completely brilliant, utterly intuitive, excellent.
