8 Directions

While the basic audio system delivers sound only from 2 directions, left and right, 3DSND’s ambisonics system delivers sound and music from 8 directions through 8 wood totems arranged in a circle to reproduce up to third order Ambisonics Sound Sphere.

16 Channels

The system is powered by 8 Raspberry Pi controls, each controlling 2 audio channels, by taking digital audio sources in input and producing analog sounds as output.

32 Speakers

To allow you to experience one of the most immersive sound journeys.

Why Ambisonics?

  • It captures the full three-dimensional Soundfield
  • The format is independent of the reproduction equipment
    • Headphones (aka Binaural)
    • 5.1, 7.1 speaker arrays
    • Custom speaker arrays
  • Youtube and Facebook have adopted ambisonics as the standard for VR
  • Open standard since the 1980s

How does it work?

Think Furier Series,but with 3D waves! The first order has 4 channels (B-format) named W, X, Y and Z.

Higher orders yield higher spatial resolution which requires more speakers.
