RECORDING AND MIXING IN WAVE FIELD SYNTHESIS
Celebrate good vibes!
Hosted by the University for Music and Performing Arts, Vienna and supported by the partners Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT, Sennheiser, Studer and Merging Technologies, this Special Event will present live concerts and their reproduction in Wave Field Synthesis alongside.
Attendees will be able to directly compare the sound inside the hall with its recorded and live mixed counterpart. Therefore, renowned musicians - including Alvaro Pierri (classical guitar) and the tango orchestra Band-O-Neon - will play pieces from their repertoire in the Joseph Haydn Concert Hall. Next door, in the Batiken Hall, the recorded and mixed session will be played back using a WFS system with more than 90 loudspeakers.
Different microphone techniques can be compared and evaluated. Neumann/Sennheiser microphones, a Vista 5 console by Studer, the Merging Technologies Pyramix Digital Audio Workstation and the Spatial Audio Workstation by Fraunhofer IDMT will provide a professional recording and mixing environment.
The workshop will be held in four sessions on May 5th and May 6th at the University of Music Vienna. For transport between the Austria Center and the University, a bus shuttle service will be offered.
Tickets will be available from the Technical Tour counter. Meeting point is the main entrance of the Austria Center.
