The Spatial Sound Card works as the standard audio device of a computer. It overs stereo and surround playback on binaural loudspeaker systems with regular headphones.

The Spatial Sound Card (SSC) software is a so-called binaural audio application for headphones by New Audio Technology. Applications are audio and video production, playing games, watching film, listening music, and VR/360.

Binaural audio simulates on regular stereo headphones the psychoacoustical phenomenons our brain uses in reality, to localize audio sources around us and detect the size and kind of the room environment where we're in. These psychoacoustical phenomenons called HRTF = head-related transfer functions.

Using these HRTFs, the SSC provides stereo and surround sound on virtual loudspeaker systems for any computer using regular headphones, also giving the choice between surround sound 5.1, 6.1, and 7.1.

Adapted from the professional production line, it is a software-based, virtual sound card, highly recommended not only for gamers but also for movie enthusiasts, music lovers, and for 360 / VR applications.

Differently to other applications, the SSC doesn't do so-called up-mixing or fake-surround processing what means to playback a stereo source on 5.1 or 7.1 anyway. It provides straight away a natural and emotional listening experience of stereo and surround sound with a very precise positional audio reproduction. Just set the SSC e.g. to 5.1 and hear your sources via the related loudspeaker configuration like stereo and 5.1.
If the SSC is running, it works as the standard audio device of your computer between all audio playback applications and your audio hardware. The loudspeaker virtualizations are taken from high-end music studios and film mixing stages. The technology of the SSC has been used on Blu-ray releases of well-known Hollywood blockbusters for more than 15 years.

To customize the virtualizations to your preferences, the SSC provides a lot of adjustable parameters like the room reflections of the virtual sound studios and the frequency response curve of the headphones you use. Profiles for some well-known headphone models are included*.

The SSC works with all applications that support stereo and surround audio output. These include games and media players like iTunes, Netflix, and VLC as well as the main output of your operating system.

Keep in mind, that Windows sometimes struggle while dealing with new standard audio devices. This is mostly just a setting issue. The user manual offers a lot of workarounds which finally will let your SSC run pretty well.
