ZYLIA 6 Degrees of Freedom Navigable Audio Software
Below you will find a list of software included in the ZYLIA 6 Degrees of Freedom Navigable Audio set:
ZYLIA 6DoF Recorder
ZYLIA 6 Degrees of Freedom Recorder is an application available for MAC OS and Linux. It enables simultaneous audio recording from all ZYLIA ZM-1S microphones connected to the computer (input). It also generates a synchronisation impulse at the beginning and at the end of each take (output) which is being sent to all the microphones at the same time for capturing. For the benefit of the user the application offers several facilities – naming the microphones, listening individual ZM-1S’s, live monitoring.
ZYLIA 6DoF Synchronizer
ZYLIA 6 Degrees of Freedom Synchronizer is an application available for MAC OS and Linux. It allows to upload recordings made with all the microphones during one take (between the initial and final synchronization impulse) and synchronize them with each other. For this purpose the Synchronizer cuts all the recordings at the beginning – so they could start exactly at the same place and makes resampling – so that the ends match as well.
ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter
ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter converts ZM-1S multi-channel recordings to Higher Order Ambisonics (HOA). The conversion is required since ZYLIA 6DoF HOA Renderer works in the Ambisonics domain. During the transformation process, the A format recordings, which are an output of the synchronization stage are being converted to a 3’rd order Ambisonics sound.
ZYLIA 6DoF HOA Renderer
ZYLIA 6 Degrees of Freedom Higher Order Ambisonics Renderer is a MAX/MSP plugin available for MAC OS and Windows. It allows processing and rendering ZYLIA Navigable 3D Audio content. With this plugin users can playback synchronized Ambisonics files, change the listener’s position, and interpolate multiple Ambisonics spheres. The plugin is also available for Wwise, allowing developers to use ZYLIA Navigable Audio technology in various game engines.
