T12 - Beethoven's 9th in 3-D Audio with Digital Microphones

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

In Part 1 of this tutorial the difficulties and specialities of recording Beethoven's 9th Symphony in Auro 3D, with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra under Maestro Myung-whun Chung, will be presented. This will include an explanation of the digital microphone setup.
Part 2 of the tutorial will introduce a "one-size fits all" algorithm that can be used by consumers for upmixing from 2-D to 3-D automatically. 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 locations such as London, Chicago, Sao Paulo, and more.

The recording and the algorithm upmixing technique can be listened to in the "Recording Beethoven's 9th in 3D plus Upmix techniques" session.
