T10 - Multichannel 3D for Synthesizer Music with Vocals

Lasse Nipkow, Silent Work LLC - Zurich, Switzerland

In synthesizer music, vocals are usually strongly compressed, so that they hold their own against the rest of the mix. In a multichannel 3D format the conditions are different: the sounds are no longer all coming from the same direction as the vocals, but from other directions around the audience. If the vocals are only being played back from the center channel, even though they will come through better, there is still the danger they will not merge timbrally with the rest of the music. Hence new ground must be broken at the conception and mixing of a song, in order to attain a satisfactory result. In this presentation, psychoacoustic considerations relating to the aforementioned cases are discussed and practically demonstrated on the basis of audio / video examples.
