Support Page

Oh dear, if you're here, it's because you're having a problem with Stereo Lab! This page details Pspatial Audio's support policies and how to get in touch if you have a problem.

Address any support mail to support@pspatialaudio.com.

When sending an email to support, please be sure to include in your mail:

  • The Stereo Lab model (Audiophile, Phonograph, Tonmeister, Home, Demo) which is installed
  • A screen capture of the "About Stereo Lab" dialogue (details of how to do this below)
  • Details of the machine running the program
  • The version of OS X that you are running
  • A brief description of the issue, with any screen shots or other information that might help
  • A copy of the audio input file which is failing (if applicable)

If the application has crashed, then we may send instructions for how to retrieve log information which will help us debug the problem.

Before you log an issue, please review the features list to check that the audio input file is supported by your application version. For example, audio input files must always be stereo.

A note about file compatibility

Please also note that audio files are formatted and structured in different and inconsistent ways by different audio encoding and conversion tools. Stereo Lab always conforms to the official specification of each supported audio file format. We cannot absolutely guarantee that it will accept files which conflict with the official specifications; even when they play out successfully in your standard audio player. That said, we do aim to extend our support for "popular format inconsistencies" over time.

Capturing the "About" dialogue

When the Stereo Lab window is in focus on the desktop, the About dialogue is the first menu entry on the Stereo Lab (Version) tab on the main menu bar. To capture this dialogue, simultaneously press the Apple command key (⌘) + SHIFT + 4 as illustrated below.

This will launch an on-screen cursor which may be used to capture a selected part of the screen. Please make sure that the About Stereo Lab is captured fully as there is information we need to help diagnose the problem given here. Your image should look like this...
