Intro to VIVE Audio SDKs


The VIVE 3D Sound Perception SDK provides a Unity compatible, audio spatialization plugin with the following features:

  • Higher Order Ambisonics
  • HRTFs based on refined real-world modeling (horizontally and vertically)
  • Support for Hi-Res audio source files and playback.
  • Acoustic distance effect with real-world modeling.

The VIVE 3DSP plugin supports room effect, room reverberation and reflection, and acoustic occlusion that is tuned for the VIVE Pro. However the original VIVE and other HMDs and headphones are also supported.

The SDK is available for download. We are looking forward to your feedback!



VIVE Pro Audio Mode

Since the VIVE Pro has dual microphones with support for alert and conversation modes, APIs are provided so that you can toggle between the three audio modes.  This provides applications the ability to toggle between listening to foreground or background audio or a mix of both. Additionally, USB Type-C high power mode setting (on/off) is also available.

The SDK is available for download in early access. We are looking forward to your feedback!
