ZYLIA ZM-1 Single-Mic Portable Recording Studio

At AES New York 2018, Zylia will showcase the new ZYLIA ZM-1, an incredibly light, compact, and beautifully designed recording solution capable of delivering 48 kHz/24-bit resolution while capturing the full spatial sound scene. No matter where they are, users can simply connect the ZYLIA ZM-1 to a laptop via USB and begin recording.

The ZM-1 boasts 19 omnidirectional microphone capsules, which are distributed around a sphere measuring 4 inches in circumference and weighing just 16.6 ounces. A LED ring encircling the sphere gives off a gentle glow that indicates recording status. When using the ZM-1 in combination with ZYLIA Studio software, musicians can record their performances in a groundbreaking way — in both 3D/360-degree audio and traditional stereo.

ZYLIA Studio PRO

ZYLIA Studio PRO is a (VST/AU) plug-in that brings spatial filtering and signal separation directly into the digital audio workstation (DAW). ZYLIA Studio PRO uses virtual microphone technology (software-defined microphones) on the 19-channel ZYLIA ZM-1 recording to separate sound sources and record them as individual tracks. The software also uses spatial filtering and blind sound-source separation to automatically detect the position of sound sources and separate them in real time. Users can set and monitor virtual microphones of multiple polar patterns or characteristics, both live and during postproduction. They can also take advantage of presets for surround or ambient recordings (5.1, 7.1, 5.4.1, 22.2, and more).

ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter

The ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter converts multichannel recordings made with the ZYLIA ZM-1 microphone into Higher Order Ambisonics (HOA) full-sphere surround sound recordings. This software tool makes it easy for users to prepare 3D audio recordings for playback on the Facebook 360 and YouTube 360 platforms. The converter offers a B-format signal set that includes first-, second-, and third-order Ambisonics to bring added height and depth to surround sound. Users can choose between the FuMa and ACN component ordering formats, as required by the target platform, and between ambiX and TBE output formats. The converter also allows for quick correction of microphone orientation in postproduction.

Zylia Workshop: Spatial Audio-Video Creations for Music, Virtual Reality, and 3D Projectors — Case Studies

Wednesday, Oct. 17, 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Part of the AES New York 2018 conference’s Immersive & Spatial Audio Track, this session will cover spatial audio-video creations in practice. Professional audio engineers and musicians will talk about their 360-degree, 3D, and ambient productions combining sound and vision. The session will include an examination of “Unraveled,” a 360-degree spatial experience in which listeners find themselves in the middle of the recording. Furthermore, the speakers will discuss the process of making 3D audiovisual footage displayed in the 360-degree dome as well as spatial recordings of the concert music. The workshop will focus especially on the use of spherical microphone arrays, which make it possible to record an entire 3D sound scene. The separation of individual sound sources in postproduction, along with Ambisonics, gives creators unlimited possibilities to achieve unique audio effects. The moderator of the workshop will be Tomasz Zernicki, Zylia co-founder and chief technology officer. More information about the event is available at http://www.aes.org/events/145/spatialaudio/?ID=6328.
