The workshop would help students, sound artists, producers and other practitioners to work with 3D audio
Sound artists Felix Deufel and Nikhil Nagaraj are hosting a full-day 3D audio workshop at 3D SoundLab Bengaluru from TheISRO (Indian Sonic Research Organization) on January 5th.
Although little known in India, 3D audio is one of the most exciting fields of study in audio technology, says Nikhil. Besides its commercial uses in film, games and more, he believes, it has limitless possibilities in the “experimental space”. For example, his current projects include developing technical solutions for immersive audio streaming and high-quality audio recording in environmentally sensitive areas for research and preservation.
3D audio is also one of the rapidly growing areas of audio technology. According to Global Industry Analysts, the global 3D audio market will reach $ 13.7 billion by 2027.
On the day of the workshop, Nikhil and Felix would present the technical infrastructure of the 32-channel 3D sound system at the SoundLab (hardware configuration and signal flow). They would also introduce open source ambisonic VST plug-ins from IEM, “Grapes” by Not a Number, and “Reaper” (a software crash course for a full 3D audio production pipeline – binaural and multichannel).
The workshop would help students, sound artists, producers and other practitioners to work with 3D audio and use TheISRO – 3D SoundLab for future experiments and productions.
“3D sound technology is scalable. This way, participants can work with their computers and headphones after the workshop in the lab, ”explains Nikhil.
The organizers recommend having a laptop. Schedule: 11 a.m. to 9:35 p.m. Participation fee: 800. For more information and to register for the workshop, visit theisro.org
