Spatial Mic Converter Plugin Updated To Include Audio Unit Compatibility
Available now in countries worldwide, Spatial Mic Dante & USB are shipping with Spatial Mic Converter Plugin v1.6.5 – an update that includes Audio Unit (AU) compatibility for use with macOS software like Logic Pro.
San Diego, CA, February 29, 2023 — Voyage Audio announces Spatial Mic Converter plugin v1.6.5 — an update that includes Audio Unit (AU) compatibility for both Spatial Mic USB and Spatial Mic Dante. This release is available as a free download and also includes various maintenance updates for both Windows and macOS. More information about Spatial Mic is located at https://voyage.audio/spatialmic.
With Audio Unit (AU) compatibility, the output from the Spatial Mic Converter plugin can be configured for the various surround formats available in Logic Pro, letting the user mix and export recordings as a Dolby Atmos spatial audio file, ready for Apple Music.
The Spatial Mic 360° Recording System relies on the Spatial Mic Converter plugin to transform the raw 8 capsule recordings from Spatial Mic USB & Dante into a format suitable for audio production.
“Bringing Spatial Mic compatibility to a DAW like Logic Pro opens up a streamlined workflow to create fully immersive spatial audio mixes using the integrated Dolby Atmos tools”, said Voyage Audio founder Colin Ritchie. “With built-in headtracking, personalized spatial audio and multiple ways to render and listen back to your mix, Logic Pro provides a great entry point for those wanting to step into immersive music, spatial audio podcasting and the future of music production.”
Logic Pro comes with a built-in surround mixer, 3D Object Panner, support for up to 7.1.4 and a suite of plugin-ins ready to work in Dolby Atmos sessions alongside the Spatial Mic Converter plugin. When you are ready to deliver your mix, you can export your project as a Dolby Atmos file, compatible with Apple Music.
In addition, a test project created from a concert recorded with Spatial Mic has been made available as a free download. Use this session as a tool to learn how to best use Spatial Mic in Logic Pro.
