Since no production is the same, we came up with a range of solutions suitable for all pockets and desired outcomes. Here below we introduce our good-better-best binaural recording techniques, examples and products for you to achieve them:
AMBEO Smart Headset
Your ears and brain work together to create a 3D audio landscape of your surroundings. The AMBEO Smart Headset captures this landscape with high quality microphones utilizing the actual outer structure of your ears to replicate the same 3D sound image that you hear naturally. Basically, a portable, iOS compatible, intuitive small brother to the dummy head concept, to be plugged directly into your ears. Capture and share your binaural audio for video in the simplest way.
AMBEO VR Mic
The AMBEO VR Mic can provide immersive binaural sound for a variety of applications thanks to the high degree of flexibility on the output its ambisonics format enables. It is a definite step up from the AMBEO Smart Headset towards professional productions, and its effect is comparable to the one of binaural dummy heads: it upgrades your music productions with a much smaller footprint, an easy setup and a more attractive price.
When wanting to include the ambient sound and acoustic footprint of a special venue and put the listener in the middle of the live performance, the AMBEO VR Mic is the ideal solution. An example is Egopusher’s binaural immersive live production of “Flake”. The Swiss/German instrumental Electronica duo made of Tobias Preisig and Alessandro Giannelli has been using the Sennheiser AMBEO VR Mic not to let the grandeur of the church they performed in get lost. Additional stationary mics have mixed in by using , Sennheiser’s free binaural panner plugin.
Neumann KU 100
The Neumann KU 100 is the industry reference dummy head microphone. A top class solution for producing pristine quality immersive binaural listening experiences. Its spatial depiction appears three dimensional and shockingly realistic. The KU 100 can be used to great effect in music and audio drama productions.
