Voyage Audio Updates Spatial Mic Converter Plugin To Include Surround Output, Announces Return to NAMM Show 2022 With New Products

Available now in countries worldwide, Spatial Mic is shipping with Spatial Mic Converter Plugin v1.3.0 that includes a highly configurable surround output stage with presets including 7.1.4, 5.1.2 and 5.1.

San Diego, CA, April 6, 2022— Voyage Audio announces Spatial Mic Converter plugin v1.3.0 — an update that allows users to decode the output from Spatial Mic’s 8 capsule array to various surround formats like 7.1.4, 5.1.2, and 5.1. The surround outputs can be used for sound bed tracks in Dolby Atmos® sessions or routed directly to the surround bus of choice. Purchase options for Spatial Mic are at

The Spatial Mic 360° Recording System relies on the Spatial Mic Converter plugin to transform the raw 8 capsule recordings from Spatial Mic into a format suitable for audio production. The output from the plugin can be configured for spatial audio production (ambix and FuMa at 1st and 2nd order are supported), mono & stereo with the virtual mic options including mid-side and various surround formats. 

The new surround output stage allows the Spatial Mic 360° recording system to be easily incorporated into surround mixes without the need for third party software. Use the rotation, tilt and roll controls to move the soundfield around in 360°, even when decoding to the surround formats.

In addition, Voyage Audio is proud to announce a return to the NAMM show, which will take place June 3 – 5, 2020 in Anaheim California. Voyage Audio is excited to show this update and also reveal new products – stay tuned for more information & make sure to visit us in Hall A, booth 11634.
