Navigating the Pitfalls of Immersive Audio Production

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Immersive audio production has become a common practice for music mixers and mastering engineers everywhere. Artists and labels are increasingly asking for 3D content to be delivered along with a standard stereo master. Practitioners, however, are at a loss when it comes to how and what to deliver, as various streaming services implement their own binaural processes. The differences include LFE filter settings, room simulation, loudness measurement and whether or not spatialization settings are respected. A panel of experts will discuss these issues and advise on best strategies regarding rear channel content, proper use of LFE and center channel as well as side surround and height channel signals. Questions from the audience will be a welcome part of the workshop.
