Immersive Music Mixing – First steps into 8D music and binaural audio productions - Live Webinar

June 30, 2020, 9:00 CEST, Berlin time

Christian Sander and Kai Detlefsen of Sennheiser partner Dear Reality and Johannes Kares from the Sennheiser AMBEO team will provide you with a solid technical background into the current and much hyped field of 8D music. Typical 8D productions are generated by binaurally rendering the stereo mixdown of a song – but there are certain limitations. The Sennheiser/Dear Reality team will show you how you can bring your 8D productions to a whole new level by positioning the instruments in the virtual space in your binaural mixes. Besides demoing binaural production workflows, they will also discuss the hype around 8D technologies and its impact on music production in general. Please register here.
