Need adequate soundscapes?

SuperDiff, unlimited audio 

– Clearly perceive each sound, precisely localised. Notice every detail, every instrument, every intention, subtle or ample.

Do you want to experience that for yourself?

Why move to multi-channel immersive audio?

Because anything is possible, now. A bit like in the 60’s when the Beatles and the Stones were inventing show-business and stereo. Likewise, today all multichannel audio / immersive / spatialized / SuperDiff can be questioned, experimented, created. I love this moment. Even naming and best practice conventions still are evolving, but it exists! Big time. To name a few: Youtube, Facebook, Sony, L-Acoustics or Meyer have working systems, along with us @ PAA-Consulting. So, already multi-channel immersive audio is available for live shows as well as for your living room. For headsets, museum, art-galleries & for huge open air events too.

Artists, time to reclaim your creative edge!

In the 1980s, the number of audio channels swelled exponentially. From the “modest” tracks count of the sixties where four or eight were enough to create the firsts Rolling Stones or Beatles albums, it flourished in biblical proportions to 96-channel SSL or Neve consoles attached to two Dash 48 tracks digital recorders, de-facto standard in 1985 & the size of rather large refrigerators. With matching leasing contracts.

Everything was cool and the 80’s were great years for studios: besides the crew of a modern liner that was needed to operate all these equipments and the serious studio time that was consumed to fill up the 96 tracks. But I think something got lost on the way, something about the pleasure of recording, playing together, spontaneity…

I never imagined saying that one day, but thank you Facebook and Google: today’s audio/video 360° allows artists to be at the center of their creation again. This is true for the image, for the sound too. In essence, the explosion of the traditional video framework and the stereo audio format, effectively gives the artists extensive creative possibilities. It’s up to them to decide what they want to do with these…

Yes, size matters! Ask the Rolling Stones!

For music, tempi, beats, at least. It is as if the very place where the music is played was, is, part of the music itself, just like one extra big instrument being part of the band.

Interestingly, there is an absolute critical size, for rooms, around  the 100 m2 range where sound start to react completely differently. This paradigm shifting dimension interact with how the music can be played and/or perceived in a said room. Smaller that that size, you are perfectly free to play at any tempo you fancy, but, you are stuck with notes or scales sounding better than others. Bigger than 100 m2 and it is exactly the opposite: you are welcome to play in any key your fancy, but the room dictates what works and what doesn’t in terms of tempo. Ask the Rolling Stones.
