This engineering brief presents a new object collection for Max that enables the Spatially Oriented Format for Acoustics (SOFA) file format to be used within Cycling 74’s Max. The SOFA file format allows for easy distribution of and access to impulse response databases. This collection will allow for SOFA files to be easily opened and created from within Max, so that they can be used in patches that utilise spatial audio reproduction. Primarily, the aims, motive and criteria of this project are discussed. This is then followed by an outline of the objects themselves, along with their design considerations and applications. A finalised version of the package will be made freely available online at: https://research.hud.ac.uk/institutes-centres/apl/resources/
