Spatial Sound in Virtual Reality

16 Selecting a Binaural Renderer and Decoder

Since we are using a binaural renderer, the track has 4 inputs and 2 outputs given by the plugin’s binaural preset. In the picture, the youtube_spatial_audio was selected as a decoder but any configuration of speakers can be used. The binaural renderer will playback as if we were listening the configuration (array of speakers) of choice. We can also use the ambix_converter plugin to convert from Fuma to Ambix and the opposite.
