Binaural 3D Audio – Introduction

One of the coolest things I’ve been exploring is Binaural 3D audio. It’s 3D audio for normal headphones, coded in normal stereo. We’re living in a world where people consume most music with earbuds, so I am hoping the modular world will be inspired to give these ‘poor’ people a completely new and immersive experience. In this episode I’d like to showcase the #3DIO​ Free Space stereo microphone that hears stuff exactly as we hear it. It’s the cheapest model in the 3DIO portfolio, but it can deliver awesome sounds. But you can also experiment for free with the Sennheiser #Orbit​ VST, now rebranded to #DearVR​ Micro (https://en-us.sennheiser.com/ambeo-orbit​). I am hoping to inspire the modular community to bring a new dimension to the music and help people to stand out on media like BandCamp. It works best with high quality WAV files (and not so good with MP3) so this could be an incentive for people to actually download your albums. Have fun!

Signals ‘Blue’ by Audio Brewers – Be Amazed!

After countless months of research, development, and art, the Audio Brewers team is proud to announce Signals ‘Blue’. Signals ‘Blue’ is the latest tool to design custom pulses and textures that can conform to any key, be major or minor, and from there, to a plethora of chords with multiple voicings. This way, the resulting texture not only fuels your music with an ambiance, but this ambiance is coherent to the chord progressions as you move through your music.

Ambisonics is a spherical surround format developed in the UK in the 1970s. Unlike stereo and other recording formats, the microphones don’t carry speaker signals, but a representation of a three-dimensional sound field. This allows artists to think of sound as source directions rather than speaker positions, allowing them to easily decode the signal to any speaker-array configuration used for playback.

Audio Brewers are helping you to set up your DAW to empower you to use Ambisonics Sounds. Just follow the link below by selecting your DAW.

Stereo Version

Audio Brewers’ method to sound also has a benefit to those who prefer to stick to Stereo. Thanks to Audio Brewers’ recording and mixing techniques, where Audio Brewers respect the microphone positions not only in a left to right fashion, but on a three-dimensional space, the resulting mix is a faithful representation of how sound behaves as it travels to your ears. Instead of having mic positions that layer on top of others, Audio Brewers offer multiple mixes that combine seamlessly with each other in total sonic harmony.

Stereo Version is compatible with every DAW available in the market.

But that’s not all! Because Audio Brewer’s philosophy is to create sample libraries in Ambisonics so that they can be compatible with any speaker-array, Audio Brewers saw the sampling phase as a new challenge and instead of using plugins with reverbs or virtual halls, Audio Brewers partnered with ‘Dust Bowl Cinematic’ and spent a great deal of time to research and develop an acoustic art installation that would reshape sounds in a custom three-dimensional sphere, they called it Pandora.

Pandora has helped to push Audio Brewers’ sampling methods to a new level, and thanks to it, Audio Brewers been able to offer Digitally Processed samples in an organic Ambisonics environment – everything that Audio Brewers captured and mixed was the natural replica of the real acoustic morph.

A full version of Kontakt is needed to load this library. It will NOT work with Kontakt player. Please make sure you own the latest version of Kontakt before purchasing.
