Spatial Audio

What’s all the buzz in the media production community? Spatial Audio! Spatial Audio is audio captured by a special, ambisonic microphone and is processed by audio encoders designed to create a 360 soundscape that interacts with immersive VR/360 experiences. A wide array of ambisonic microphones have been introduced recently, which speaks to the industry’s commitment to spatial audio’s role in enhancing immersive experiences.

As longtime users of the Ambeo and Hear360 products, Crosswater’s talented immersive VR/360 audio engineers have become very familiar with recording and mixing tactics, and are excited to collaborate on your immersive projects.
Contact Crosswater at (716) 884-8486, crosswater@crosswater.net, Facebook Messenger, or LinkedIn to learn how VR/360 experiences may be enhanced by spatial audio.

Music Therapy

Music and a healthy mind go hand-in-hand!

“Research has con­firmed that music has both psy­chological and physiological effects,” according to UC Berkeley’s article about music’s therapeutic value. Crosswater’s co-founder and composer, John Michael Adamo, knows this well, and has been composing music designed to comfort patients suffering from Dementia and Depression for an ongoing project with our Canadian healthcare partners, Primacare Living Solutions.

Contact Crosswater at (716) 884-8486, crosswater@crosswater.net, Facebook Messenger, or LinkedIn to learn how the power of music can have profound impacts, and how John may be able to help create the perfect soundscape to fit your specific needs.

Spatial Audio Enhances VR
