SRS Debuts Circle Surround Encoder for VST

Circle Surround VST Pro supports up to 6.1 channels By Dave Nagel
SRS Labs has announced a new encoder for its Circle Surround technology. The new software supports up to 6.1-channel encoding from within VST-compatible host systems. It's expected to ship next month for Mac OS X and Windows.

SRS Circle Surround VST Pro provides Circle Surround encoding and decoding via two plugins for VST. The Encoder plugin allows users to encode multiple channels of audio into a stereo delivery format for use in television, audio CDs and other formats. It provides full-bandwidth (96 kHz) stereo surround channels and center channel dialog isolation. Circle Surround is compatible with many surround A/V receivers, as well as stereo and mono playback. Other features include:

  • Support for 44.1 kHz to 96 kHz sample rates;
  • Full bandwidth playback of three distinct rear channels;
  • Support for LCR, LCRS, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0 and 6.1 surround formats;
  • Selectable high-pass filter on main channels.

The Circle Surround Decoder plugin supports seven-channel output, bass- and dialog-enhancement technologies and multi-band steering logic for >30 dB front/rear channel separation.

Circle Surround VST Pro will be available in November for $499 for Mac OS X and Windows. It supports any VST-compliant host application with surround capabilities. For more information, visit
