New Release: EAR Production Suite v0.7.0

Posted on behalf of Matt Firth:

Hi all! We’d like to announce a new beta release of our EAR Production Suite software, developed by BBC R&D and IRT under the EBU: https://www.bbc.co.uk/makerbox/tools/ear-production-suite
The EAR Production Suite enables production of next-generation audio content using the Audio Definition Model (ADM - ITU-R BS.2076).

The most significant improvements in this release are support for HOA input and a Binaural monitoring plug-in using our BEAR renderer, complete with with head-tracking support.

We are keen to gather feedback on head-tracker compatibility whether good or bad so we can broaden our support. Head over to this thread to provide your feedback.

Thanks for the notification on this - I’ll check it out.
I’m particularly interested in the new binaural tools.
Side note: I did some separate testing with the binaural tools from VISR-S3A but was never able to get the binaural plug-in to load.
