SD4 - Recording Beethoven's 9th in 3-D Plus Upmix Techniques

Presenter:
Gregor Zielinsky, Sennheiser Electronic GmbH & Co. KG - Germany

Abstract:
Three repeated 30 minute presentations at 14:00, 14:30, 15:00.

Part 1
In this session, examples from the original recording of Beethoven's 9th Symphony, with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra under Maestro Myung-whun Chung, will be played (as introduced in the accompanying tutorial).

Part 2: Upmix of Stereo to 3D
In order to prepare the audience for 3D sound, sources need to be upmixed from 2D to 3D. A "one-size fits all" algorithm is presented, which is able to upmix 2D to 3D automatically. Furthermore, the algorithm can be used in a professional version with the option of parameter tuning for professional upmix mastering.
The algorithm was used for the "David Bowie is..." exhibition, which will be presented in Berlin 2014 as well as in other worldwide places like London, Chicago, Sao Paulo and more.
Many sound examples from Bowie to Pink Floyd will be played.
