We are happy to announce the release of ZYLIA 6DoF HOA Renderer for Max MSP v2.0. (macOS, Windows).
This software is a key element of ZYLIA 6DoF Navigable Audio system. It allows you to reproduce the sound field in a given location based on Ambisonics signals recorded with ZM-1S microphones. The plugin works in Max/MSP environment so you can use this tool directly in your project. Please refer to the provided example project with our plugin and the manual for ZYLIA 6DoF HOA Renderer.
The newest ZYLIA 6DoF HOA Renderer for Max/MSP has a lot of improvements.
The new User Interface can be accessed in a separate window – it allows you to set up the whole configuration directly in the plugin, without using the message mechanism of Max/MSP. The UI allows you also to lock the microphones’ positions, preventing the unintentional change of the scene configuration.
The next thing is an increased number of supported signals, right now you can pass up to 30 HOA signals to the plugin, and create a 6DoF experience on much larger scenes.
If you would like to test this plugin, you can also use a 7-day free trial, and play around with our 6DoF audio rendering algorithm. The test recording data for the plugin can be found on our webpage.
