The view from the front: Mix with the Pros 3D

Missed our 3D sound event? You’re in luck. A couple of attendees – familiar MWTP face James Ivey from Pro Tools Expert and the new, more mysteriously named Statis from Beatnik TV – have kindly done everyone else a massive favour by rounding up the event.

Statis’ latest vlog over at Beatnik TV explains that “the event is devoted to helping audio professionals understand and work with the limitations and opportunities of [3D mix downs and sound for virtual reality]. From how to mix audio in 3D space to how to work with the issues created by movement in virtual realities, the event covered a huge range of the hurdles facing everyone working in these new sectors.” His video, below, features highlights of some of the day’s demos from Dolby, Sennheiser and more. (He also visited a very cool-looking graffiti show in the same episode, so you can brush up on your street art at the same time).

For a more detailed rundown of who said what, head over to Pro Tools Expert for James Ivey’s writeup, where insights include the fact that the S6 “can be used alongside any Eucon compatible application like Apple’s Logic Pro and because the S6 can address multiple machines and DAWs at the same time you can have different faders or banks of faders assigned to the different DAWs  at the same time. So you can have a group of virtual instrument channels from Logic running on the same surface as your dialog channels from Pro Tools.”

(There’s also a nice overview of the different speakers’ topics – useful in case you ever need to make small talk with Richard Addis or need to know who to direct your Dolby questions to).

Pro Tools Expert also managed to grab Avid’s Rich Nevens for a sit-down interview in our highly photogenic Steampunk demo room. Watch below for an overview on Rich’s journey to Avid’s Director of Strategic Solutions, and what Avid are planning for the future.

Thanks very much to James and Statis for a) dropping by and b) taking the time to give us such positive write ups – hope to see you next time, guys!

DSpatial | The Immersive Revolution

DSpatial | The Immersive Revolution

DSpatial offers an integrated and seamless solution for next generation immersive sound production, which redefines the classical concepts of reverb, panning and mixing, unifying them into a single space and providing a new paradigm for the sound production and mixing for film and virtual reality. This simple but powerful paradigm let the engineers concentrate on the creative process and provides a tool to create and manipulate sound in a completely new way.

DSpatial 2016

DSpatial‘s key feature is a proprietary Physical Modelling Engine, which allows the user to realistically recreate real spaces and locate, move and rotate sound sources in real time, transporting the listener to a new, virtual yet realistic dimension, therefore magnifying the aural experience and recreating natural soundscapes that rival reality. Physical properties like the inertia and Doppler effects are created automatically by simply moving the sound sources.

Adding more and more channels increases dramatically the complexity of an immersive sound mix. DSpatial directly addresses this by simplifying the problem at its core. With its multi-touch screen DSpatial opens up a whole new field of creative possibilities for the film mixer and sound designer by empowering them whilst simplifying processes.

DSpatial is fully integrated with Avid Pro Tools and is compatible with all immersive or non-immersive formats. The mix is played back in every format without the need to downmix. The number of input and output channels is only limited by the number of interfaces and by the power of the host computer.
