Wave Field Synthesis (WFS) permits the reproduction of a sound fi eld, which fi lls nearly the whole reproduction room with correct localization and spatial impression. Because of its properties, the WFS technology shows enormous potential to be used for creation of audio in combination with motion pictures. For this application a special authoring system is in development, which gives audio engineers the possibility to automate the process of positioning sound sources, and takes several ergonomics as well as technical features into account. This paper presents fi rst experiences of the mixing process for content production using WFS. It also demonstrates the authoring system capabilities for WFS and shows future developments.
