The X-Audio Team from the Ecole Polytechnique's Center for Applied Mathematics (CMAP) developped a free binaural monitoring plug-in. Born out of a collaboration with sound engineers of the Conservatoire National de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP), this dynamic binaural engine allows you to mix and monitor up to 48 channels for each instance of the plugin, using the speaker setup of your choice.
This software uses HRTFs calculated with state-of-the-art interpolation techniques which allow a one degree precision. Various equalizations have been employed on those filters to seek the best compromise between timbre and externalization.
