NEW – VST3 Plugins Supported in Audirvana Plus for Windows 10

Version 1.3 of Audirvana Plus for Windows 10 now includes support for VST3 plugins. Restart Audirvana Plus to upgrade to the new version 1.3 and you could use your equaliser and your preferred acoustics corrector.

The installation directory is set by the VST3 standard. Just use the plugin installation program and then relaunch Audirvana Plus.

FYI, there will be no development of VST 2 for Audirvana Plus for Windows 10. Indeed, Steinberg announced 5 years ago that the VST2 format was obsolete and replaced by VST3. The end of the transition period ended in October 2018 with the complete removal of support and SDK for VST2.

For more information on Steinberg’s removal of VST2s, please read Steinberg’s release.

Interview of Damien PLISSON, Founder and CEO of Audirvana

Watch the interview of Damien PLISSON, CEO and Founder of Audirvana about future developments of Audirvana Plus…

This video was made possible thanks to Cinenow during the Festival Son & Image 2017 in Paris.

Audirvana received a Special prize as “MASTERPIECE 2017 – PRODUITS LES PLUS REMARQUÉS DU FESTIVAL” during the Festival Son & Image 2017.

Audirvana Plus 3.1 released

Audirvana 3.1 now enables to play to UPnP/DLNA network players to benefit from the great sound quality of Audirvana Plus even when the Mac is not directly connected to the audio system.

Audirvana Plus 3.1 was developed:

– thanks to the help and close collaboration with the Pioneer & Onkyo Group who actively participated in the development of this new version of the software by providing support including a wide range of representative models of network players (Pioneer N-70AE, Pioneer N-50AE, Pioneer N-30AE, Pioneer N-70A, Pioneer N-50A, Onkyo NS-6130) and the Home Cinema Receiver VSX-1131.

– and in close collaboration with the manufacturer Sonore who allowed the compatibility of the following products (microRendu, ultraRendu, Sonicorbiter SE, Signature Rendu SE)

In order to easily identify the network players that have been tested and certified as compatible with Audirvana Plus 3.1, Audirvana Plus created a new sticker called « Works With Audirvana Plus ».

Audirvana Plus 3.1  is available for:

  • $74 (or €64 excl. VAT)  for new customers
  • $39 (or €34 excl. VAT)  for any Audirvana Plus user of a previous version – Audirvana Plus 1 or Audirvana Plus 2
  • Free Upgrade for any customer who already purchased Audirvana Plus 3

Audirvana Plus 3.1 public beta is available!

With Audirvana Plus 3.1 your audio files can be sent to a network player to benefit from the sound quality of Audirvana Plus even when you Mac is not hooked to your audio system.

Audirvana Plus 3.1 prepares the working process of the network player:

  • Any PCM format audio file is sent to a non-compressed WAV format thus, avoiding the network reader from performing decompression calculations potentially harmful to the sound quality,
  • Any DSD format audio file can be transmitted directly decompressed (or transcript to PCM if the network drive does not support the DSD)
  • The MQA decoding is performed before being sent to the network drive, thus enabling the network reader to read the Hi-Res content of the MQA file.
  • All audio filters (such as “Upsampling to PCM and DSD”, “AudioUnits effects” (e.g. for equalization and digital room correction)) are available.
  • Please note “realtime setting of AudioUnits” is not available when playing to a network player.

The public beta can be downloaded from Audirvana “beta 3.1” forum. And you can also report your test findings there.
