Unlock the Future of Sound Capture with Spatial Mic
If your next Virtual Reality (VR) or Augmented Reality (AR) video, game or other multimedia project requires immersive head-tracked audio, Spatial Mic is here to help. Spatial Mic records in 360 degrees, allowing the sound your viewer hears to change as they move and look around in a Virtual Reality or 360° video.
Spatial Mic can record or stream audio for live events, games, film, YouTube 360 and Facebook 360 with a compatible plugin host like Reaper, Pro Tools or Nuendo. The Higher Order Ambisonics (HOA) output from Spatial Mic can be manipulated live or in post production using industry standard plugins from Facebook 360, SSA, Blue Ripple Sound and others.
Spatial Mic is an essential creative tool for your mic locker. It’s easy to incorporate Spatial Mic into a more traditional recording setup by using the built-in ADAT connectivity. For example, add an 8 channel, Second Order Ambisonic mic to your next drum recording session and dial in the perfect room sound.
Recording on-the-go? Spatial Mic can connect directly to mobile devices and apps like AUM, MultiTrack DAW, Audio Evolution Mobile, and N-Track that support class-compliant USB audio 2.0 devices. If you are concerned about battery life, Spatial Mic also offers an aux 5v power input over a micro-USB jack.
Quality & Construction
Spatial Mic Converter Plugin
The Spatial Mic Converter plugin transforms the raw audio signals from Spatial Mic to first or second order ambisonics in AmbiX or Fuma formats. To accomplish this, Spatial Mic Converter uses an internal 64-channel filter matrix and measurements from an anechoic chamber.
Spatial Mic Converter offers the capability to change the microphone’s aim at the point in space where the audio was recorded. This is useful when aligning audio position with 360 video, or aiming the mic at a specific sound that should be in front of the listener.
Spatial Mic Control App
The Spatial Mic Control app provides remote manipulation of various hardware parameters on Spatial Mic. Spatial Mic Control communicates with the microphone through the same USB cable used to supply power and stream audio data. Spatial Mic Control replicates the hardware controls found on Spatial Mic itself and adds additional functionality.
