Best Examples of Music Recorded in Binaural 3D Audio
Recording hardware and the way we listen to music has come a long way in the last decade. But no recording technology has witnessed an larger upgrade than binaural recording.
Binaural audio, a technology on the rise is changing the way we record the world. It’s also changing the way we make music. Binaural audio is 3D sound, the sound in the space identical to the way we hear it, and it’s is a great way for artists and storytellers to get their vision out there. But must be recorded using a binaural microphone.
Binaural audio puts listeners directly in the spaces where it was recorded. No matter where that is, the audience is transported back to that time and space, hearing everything as it was recorded. Every note, every breath, tap of the foot, creak in the floor, everything exactly where it came from. However it was recorded is the way that it plays back for you. Localization, or being able to process a particular place where something is coming from, is a very big part of binaural and 3D audio and recording. Your brain processes the soundwaves and where they are coming from and tries to place the sound source.
