I am very excited to announce the launch of our brand new Hooke Live Sessions- Chicago series. In this series, we capture some of Chicago’s most exciting up and coming acts in immersive binaural 3D audio with Hooke Verse. Hooke Verse is perfect for capturing live music as it lets you feel like you’re in the room with the musicians. Hearing is believing!

How it works

We shoot each video in one take. The cameraman wears Hooke Verse so that when watched back you are both hearing and seeing from his perspective. We put a camera to our eye to let viewers see what we see, why not put a mic to our ears to let them hear what we hear? The result is magical, a musical experience unlike any other that puts you right in the middle of the action from the comfort of your own home.

Why Music in 3D Audio?

Your ears know best when it comes to mixing your instrument. Whether your hunched over your guitar or smack dab in the middle of drumset, you play based upon what YOU hear. So if you hear the world in 3D, why not capture it that way? Put a record a button your eardrums. Grab a pair of headphones and hear the difference by clicking any of the videos on this page.

  • Binaural 3D audio can be experienced on any pair of headphones, meaning you can upload your binaural music straight to the web and have any one hear it in 3D.
  • Hooke Verse can record wirelessly or wired, meaning you can record to a mixer, phone, recorder or sampler right in your studio. When plugging the cable in, it will override the onboard mic to capture your music in 3D audio.
  • More than half of YouTube, SoundCloud and Spotify content is consumed on mobile, meaning headphone listening is at an all time high. A perfect opportunity for binaural audio.
