Audiomovers Omnibus 3.0 & New Binaural Renderer for Apple Music

Omnibus gets networking capability and a new user interface.


1 February 2024

As well as new networking options, Omnibus 3.0 also features a revamped UI and improvements to existing features for far greater flexibility when routing audio.

The audio routing software – which operates like a virtual patchbay for Mac – will feature new networking functionality, with support for NDI and AVB network protocols. The new networking functionality means Omnibus 3.0 can communicate with nearby Omnibus instances running on other machines via one of the networking protocols, simplifying wireless audio routing between devices and machines.

Omnibus also now has a flexible virtual device channel count. Each Omnibus virtual device can have anything from two to 256 channels, depending on preference and use case.

Engineers can also add only the audio devices they wish to route visible in the interface, adding and removing any audio device, from both the list and the routing matrix.

Omnibus 3.0 will now allow engineers to capture audio from specific applications (as well as audio devices), regardless of their audio device output routing, and route the audio as required, so engineers can route application audio separately or combine audio sources.

Omnibus 3.0 New features in full: 


  • AVB support (AVB-enabled hardware required)
  • NDI audio support

Flexible and robust audio routing

  • Four Virtual Drivers with 2 up to 256 channels
  • Application Capture (when OMNIBUS is the system playback device)
  • Add only desired hardware/virtual drivers to routing matrix
  • Sample Rate Conversion and smart buffer tracking

MIDI and Stream Deck support

  • MIDI program Change support for snapshots
  • Support for Stream Deck including Stream Deck Plugin

UI Improvements

  • Adjustable darkness levels for matrix background
  • Hot Snapshot Panel and Menu recall
  • Add devices and channel count as needed

Audiomovers also announced a new Binaural Renderer for Apple Music.

The new standalone application version allows users to use any audio device as its input for ease of routing. It features two additional switchable auxiliary inputs for pass thru audio that could be used as reference inputs for other binaural or stereo sources such as Dolby binaural render or Apple Music spatial out.

The multichannel ‘pass thru’ option allows users to integrate the Binaural Renderer application between the Dolby Renderer and a studio speaker setup with ease. In addition, a separate Spatial Render output device and channel selection enables engineers to use any headphones as an output.

The Binaural Renderer for Apple Music app comes supplied with a 16-channel virtual driver that acts as a link between Dolby Renderer and Binaural Renderer for Apple Music – simplifying the engineer’s workflow in a single system scenario.
