After a self-asserted ‘music-filled summer’, 3D sound expert Sonic Emotion will cap off the season with an enhanced version of its 3D sound processor Sonic Wave I – set for launch prior to the Pro Sound Awards (19 September).
Audiences at any of the 31 concerts held during the eight-week-long Paris Jazz Festival will have experienced the company’s Sonic Wave I. And its success at the event meant its use was carried over into the Parisian Classique Vert Festival, which showcases music old and new in the French capital from 3 August until 15 September.
The upgraded 3D sound processor will feature Urania - the name given to newer versions of software and hardware – offering further possibilities of interactive and timeline interfaces to go along with the company’s Absolute 3D sound technology. Urania will also enable further possibilities with tracking systems.
As for the upcoming Pro Sound Awards, the company has been nominated for its work in Zurich's prestigious Aura club in the Permanent Installation category. The 500-capacity venue immerses guests in 360º visual projection and Absolute surround sound. Sonic Emotion’s Sonic Wave I 3D sound processor has been integrated with a Coolux Media Manager, enabling the easy syncronisation of joint video and audio production at the venue. The system also allows editing and real time 3D movement automations can also be sync'd.
“We are so pleased to have been selected as a finalist for the Pro Sound Awards,” commented Christen Casey, marketing communications manager at Sonic Emotion. “It would be quite an honor to be chosen as a winner - to be named a finalist along with such an outstanding ensemble of the industry applicants and finalist is already a great reward.”
