Surround Audio That Lasts: Future-proof Ambisonic Recording and Processing Technique for the Real World

Document Thumbnail

The evolution of surround audio presents new challenges to recording engineers. While there may be some consensus on best practice for the 5.1 playback format, content compatibility for future formats is increasingly important. This paper describes practical experiences of these issues in a Music Recording context, using Ambisonic technology to achieve excellent spatial realism without changing classic workflow practices. Furthermore, the paper shows how this approach allows for simultaneous mixes to be made for playback scenarios as yet undefined, including possible "with-height" formats.
