Immersive Music Mixing Live Webinar

Christian Sander and Kai Detlefsen of Sennheiser partner Dear Reality and Johannes Kares from the Sennheiser AMBEO team will provide a technical background into the current and much-discussed field of 8D music. Typical 8D productions are generated by binaurally rendering the stereo mixdown of a song – but there are certain limitations. The Sennheiser/Dear Reality team will show how to bring 8D productions to a new level by positioning the instruments in the virtual space in binaural mixes. Register here.
