Improved automatic gain correction in the set of new ZYLIA drivers
To ensure the highest quality of ZYLIA equipment, every piece of ZYLIA ZM-1 array is professionally measured at the assembly line to detect any sensitivity differences, which may occur between individual MEMS microphones. Those data are constantly monitored and analyzed for the benefit of all audio recording enthusiast. Based on captured measurement data Zylia specialists developed the automatic gain correction in the set of new ZYLIA drivers. It means a significant upgrade in the quality of the 360-degree sound scene recordings.
To be more detailed, this great new feature, allows to lower the sensitivity differences between individual microphones in ZYLIA ZM-1 from +/- 1 decibel down to +/- 0.1 dB! This results in higher performance of sound source separation algorithms applied in ZYLIA Studio and ZYLIA Studio PRO. It will also increase the quality of HOA signals (Higher Order Ambisonics) in ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter. From the user’s point of view, it means especially:
Introduced changes will be appreciated especially by professional sound engineers and audio researchers.
Additionally, a new ZYLIA ZM-1 driver for macOS:
Additionally, a new ZYLIA ZM-1 driver for Windows:
New release of ZYLIA Studio PRO and ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter Plugins are developed to address the needs of audio enthusiasts. The new plug-ins accommodate specific characteristics of Pro Tools and enable use of the DAW with the innovative ZYLIA ZM-1 microphone.
Because Pro Tools since 12.8.2 version supports a maximum of 16 channels per track instead of the 19 provided by the ZM-1 microphone, ZYLIA plug-ins in the AAX plug-in format work slightly different than in VST/AU version. They process the first 16 channels from ZYLIA ZM-1 recordings and omit the three bottom microphones. Users still benefit from the plug-ins’ unique features. ZYLIA Studio PRO enables spatial filtering and signal separation directly within a DAW, and also gives users access to various surround presets (up to 10.2/5.1.4). Number of virtual microphones is limited to 16. ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter in the AAX version supports conversion to 1st- and 2nd-order Ambisonics, enabling users to prepare 3D audio recordings.
We are happy to announce a new release of ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter v. 1.2.0 and ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter Plugin v. 1.1.0. Here are all the changes.
ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter v. 1.2.0

We are happy to announce a release of ZYLIA ZM-1 drivers for Windows 7. Now our software is compatible with Windows 7 and 10.
We are thrilled to announce new versions of ZYLIA Studio (1.7.2), ZYLIA Studio PRO (1.3.1) and update of ZYLIA ZM‑1 drivers.
ZYLIA ZM-1 model 3E support
The most significant change is support for a new model of ZYLIA ZM-1. We added tailored spatial filters for a 3E microphone model to ZYLIA Studio and ZYLIA Studio PRO.
Source localization in ZYLIA Studio PRO
Source localization function is a new feature which will help you to find sound sources in the space. Thanks to that you will add a new virtual microphone in the right 3D position immediately.
To enable this function, press on the "Source localization" button in the left-upper corner of ZYLIA Studio PRO window. The localization algorithm works in real time. During playback of your 19-channel recording, estimated positions of the sound sources will appear on the VST/AU radar screen (blue icons). To add a virtual microphone in this position, simply click on the sound source icon.
ZYLIA Control Panel (macOS)
ZYLIA Control Panel now is bundled with ZYLIA ZM-1 driver for macOS operating systems. Thanks to this application you will be able to manipulate LED brightness of your ZYLIA ZM-1 device.
To dim LED of plugged ZYLIA ZM-1 microphone, open ZYLIA Control Panel application and by using the slider decrease brightness to the desired level (you can turn the LED off as well). After closing ZYLIA Control Panel you'll be ready to start your recording session. ZYLIA Control Panel saves the last used LED brightness level and restores it right after application start.
Additionally we fixed a few small bugs to improve stability of ZYLIA software.
We are pleased to announce a new release of ZYLIA Studio 1.6.1.
This edition is a minor update to the previous release and it brings a lot of small changes and bug fixes.

Auto-mixing by default
Second change is that we enabled the auto-mix function by default.
After you separate your recording into separate instrument tracks the auto-mixing feature will engage when you visit the mixer screen for the first time. Thanks to that you’ll immediately receive a balanced recording. You can always reset the adjustments using the “Reset adjustments” option in the mixer’s menu. You can also use the “Mix automatically” button to repeat the auto-mixing procedure.
Bug fixes and other improvements
Alongside those two changes, we fixed couple bugs regarding the user’s interface, including: better touch-pad scrolling on macOS, improved snack bar notification’s management and we fixed a minor bug in the auto-mix functionality that could lead to weird results in some band configurations.
