Description of App: 

"A life-changing application, one that makes listening to music like nothing you have ever experienced" - Westword

"StagePass is your sure ticket to an incredible listening experience" - AppModo

StagePass is an incredible new way to experience your music. Listen to any of your music as if you are sitting in the audience at any of the included world class venues. StagePass recreates all the subtle nuances of each venue in rich three dimensional sound using state of the art spatial audio processing.

StagePass is the culmination of two years of breakthrough developments in binaural acoustic measurement. Using a custom designed binaural microphone, StagePass is able to achieve unprecedented localization, soundstage, imaging, and clarity in recreating the acoustics of venues. Put your headphones on and visualize each space's expanse, textures, the stage in front of you, and be taken away by the music.

Design your own experience. Listen to your favorite local artists rock out at large theaters and concert halls. Take the Rock Stars back to their roots on the small club circuit. The possibilities are endless.

Our team is on the road, in the venues, capturing the sweet spots in every room so you always have the best seat in the house. We will continue to add the greatest venues as we capture them.

Other Comments: 

I was quite sceptical on reading the description. but after putting StagePass through it's paces, I can say that it really does do what it says on the tin. It really puts the music out of your head and into the space around you. Either directly to the frunt, to the side, or even behind you depending on the preset selected.

After looking up some of the venues on YouTube, I think the emulations are as accurate as they claim.
I wouldn't use it a lot as convolution reverb effects are quite processor intensive, so I can see it draining the battery quickly.
