Congratulations to the 93rd Oscar Nominees!
We released a free eBook called "All You Need To Know About 3D Audio", which covers the main 4 topics of immersive sound: channel-based, object-based, Ambisonics, and Binaural. Our goal is to bring more people into this world of sharing our passion of 3D sound!
Sound Particles is a disruptive 3D audio software that uses computer graphics techniques applied to audio. Our products have been used by all Hollywood major studios in productions such as Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Frozen.
We combine particle systems techniques with a 3D CGI-like engine, making Sound Particles capable of generating thousands of sounds to create complex soundscapes, enriching the audio results and achieving an unprecedented realism in the audio software.
