Binaural Surround VST Plugin Technical Requirements

Please check that everything is okay here before purchasing software.

Operating System

Supported versions of Microsoft Windows are Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. Supported versions of Apple macOS are 10.7 or later, Intel only. The plugins are available in 32bit or 64bit forms on both platforms (packaged as a Universal Binary on macOS).

VST Host

These plugins are VST 2 plugins, and require a VST 2 host to operate.

These plugins do not work with all VST 2 hosts. They are multichannel plugins and so will not work on VST hosts that only handle stereo. Also, note that some of the plugins need large numbers of channels on each track. For instance, the "Binaural Surround - 22.2" plugin needs 24 channels of input and so currently cannot be used with Cubase or Nuendo. We hope this will change, but in the meantime you can use other hosts such as Reaper, Pyramix or Max/MSP. Check the individual plugins for the channel counts they need.

PC Hardware

Please check your PC meets the following requirements:

  • Intel Pentium D CPU or better.
  • 200MB of free disk space.
  • Internal network card.

Internet Connection Required

These plugins require an Internet Connection for license activation and verification. We don't really like this, but we can't think of a better way to discourage piracy! Please don't hack our code, it's taken a lot of effort to get it this far...

Successful license verification isn't required every time you use the software, but it is needed during installation and needs to succeed once every couple of weeks to keep the license fresh.

The license can be "revoked" to remove it from one machine so it can be moved on to another. You should also do this if you're updating your system in case the machine appears to have changed identity.

Permissions

You'll need administrator permissions while installing on Windows. The software won't install properly using a "restricted" account.
