However, everyone has headphones. As more media is consumed, watched and listened to on smart phones and tablets this Plug In App from Flux / Icram allows for discrete 5.1 (and other surround formats) to be down converted into a binaural stereo surround file that can be played pack on any device.
This means for $35.00 USD this plug-in is the gateway to open the flood gates to surround sound via binaural for the masses. This is really exciting. I'll be posting some demos soon of some mixes I've been playing with using this technology.
Some may have seen the Z+ App for the iPhone from Hans Zimmer for several of his scores.
