What is 3D Audio?
In short, when recorded audio contains more spatial information than simple stereo, we can call it “3D Audio”. Or we can use one of the related terms “Ambisonics” and “Immersive Audio”. The main difference to stereo is that stereo only provides information to localise sound sources in the horisontal plane from left to right, while 3D audio in addition includes front-to-back and/or down-to-up information.
This means that 3D audio files greatly increase the sense of envelopment and realism of audio productions. This is especially true for so-called “higher order recordings” (read more here), for two reasons: Firstly, they make it possible to locate sounds much more precisely when listening. Secondly, they increase the sense of actually “being there”.
What is Munk Productions Ambisonic Ambiences?
Munk Productions Ambisonic Ambiences (MPAA) is a growing library of 3D audio ambiences and 3D sound effects for immediate download. We intend to cover the most often needed ambiences (and a smaller number of single sound effects) for a broad range of projects.
We record all ambiences to 3rd order Ambisonics format (Higher Order Ambisonics, HOA) and make them available as
- 16-channel 3rd order ambisonic files for Ambisonic projects
- binaural (stereo) immersive files ready to use in stereo projects
You can purchase the two file types together in the Ambisonic packages, or as binaural only in the binaural packages.
