A Powerful Spatial Audio Plugin for Digital Audio Workstations
Works is the simplest way to place interactive 3D sounds in VR experiences. It empowers filmmakers and audio engineering professionals to create lifelike audio for cinematic VR and 360 video during the post-production stage.
- OS: MacOS 10.10 (Yosemite), MacOS 10.11 (El Capitan), MacOS 10.12 (Sierra)
- Plugin host: Pro Tools 12.x, Pro Tools 11.2 or later
(Pro Tools HD is required for 5.1 and Ambisonics audio)
The current version of Works supports Pro Tools. Support for other platforms, including VST, is in development.
Spatialization has never been easier
Unlike other spatial audio plugins, the structure of Works is simple and familiar: master and slave. Simply insert the slave plugin for the tracks you want to spatialize. The slaved tracks will then appear on the master window view for you to manipulate.
Intuitively shape and design sound content in real time while playing your imported reference video, which can be up to 4k resolution. Every element can be manually adjusted to achieve granular precision. Simply drag and drop the audio tracks onto the video and match the corresponding object movements. After movements are placed and recorded, the information for azimuth, elevation and distance is applied on the automation lane. All the appropriate audio tracks now have positional data, and sound synchronizes perfectly with the video as the user’s orientation changes.
Quick export with offline bouncing
Once an output format is chosen, projects can be exported quickly with offline bouncing. GA5 format is recommended to deliver a superior sense of object localization and audio quality over FOA. GA5 guarantees that the same sound from production is heard on the player side without downgrading the quality.
