  1. You're going to need headphones!


    Listen to the soundclip.

    I don't know what it is supposed to be (Cutting your hair?), but it simulates a surround sound experience.

    You can even hear it move above you and below you.

    I have a pair of 5.1 Surround sound headphones, and this is the most amazing thing I've ever heard.

    This is not a screamer. ;)

    Someone buy this guy some tickets to a RUSH concert. :D

    Really though....it reminded me of a cheap rip off of the beginning of "One" by Metallica. I kept waiting for the opening riff.

    It´s someone lighting a match and then shaking a box full of matches.

    Cool though how the sound moves around your head :)
  4. Ah yes, holophonic sound. The most awesome thing about it is that it's only stereo and yet you can get a strong sense of directional sound, even sound behind you, below you, or above you. Pretty amazing stuff.

    It's great because it's really only stereo and yet it beats out 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound systems. The only catch is that it really only works well in headphones (or just the right kind of speakers).

    I need a VST effect that can do holophonic sound positioning. :p
