2022 ONLINE MEETING
Date: Saturday, September 3,
2022, 2:00 PM
FEATURED GUEST: CEO of Zylia,
(Headphones Required to experience the Best of 3D Audio
6-Degrees of Freedom (DoF), Volumetric Audio production for
the Metaverse and Virtual Concerts.
Our ZOOM meeting Saturday will require
participants to have available headphones to listen to binaural
audio recorded with a Zylia, multi-capsule microphone. This
should be an exciting and educational meeting due to the advancing
field of technology involved in multi-capsule recording technology,
and the role it will play in our future recording menus. The
ZYLIA ZM-1S microphone has a 19-capsule array. All are equipped
with XENSIV digital MEMS microphones from the German-based
Infineon Technologies. Each capsule has a 69 dB signal-to-noise
ratio, 105 dB dynamic range, high output linearity, and handles
up to 130 dB Sound Pressure Level.
The Zylia ZM-15, according to its promoters,
delivers 6-Degrees of Freedom and delivers Navigable Audio.
Unlike the current two microphone approach, the Zylia engineer
records an entire sound field around and within any performance.
This means for the listener while listening to a recording made
with the Zylia, he/she will experience the same 6-DoF available
at a live concert. The listener can walk through the recorded
audio space freely as if he/she was at the live concert. For
instance, you can approach the stage, or even step on the stage
to stand next to the musicians. As in the case of a real-life
sound scene the sound you hear will be different at every listening
position, as in the case of a real-life sound scene.
Tomasz Zernickis presentation will
1. How can the Metaverse and XR offer a vast playground
and revenue source for the music industry?
2. How do I get started in XR if I'm an independent music-maker
3. What are the leading platforms and tools to develop
4. The strategy for recording sound and enabling six-degrees-of-freedom
playback, using multiple simultaneous and synchronized Higher
Order Ambisonics (HOA) recordings.
Many BAS members are involved in creating
live concert recordings. Saturdays presentation will be
our first look into the possible future of live concert recordings.
