Here's the press release from Sound Magic: 3D Interactive Music is a revolutionary digital audio technology which
achieves an entirely new level of realism and playability while opening up
incredible new realms of sound! 3D Interactive Music allows audiences to
experience music from different physical perspectives, allowing them to
"move around the concert hall" - or even "join" the band on stage. And
more importantly, it is the first time that the audiences have the right
to choose the sounds they prefer - arranging and re-arranging their sounds
to create amazing new perspectives of their favorite music.
Totally different from recording, 3D Interactive Music enables its
audiences to actively participate in the process of shaping the final
sound. Not an equalizer or tone control - or even a basic panning knob -
3D Interactive Music delves deeper into the way our brain interprets the
sounds we hear. When we play our music, be it on CD, MP3 or even a Blu-ray
Disk, it is static: audiences hear the same thing every time and cannot
change it.But in 3D Interactive Music, your ears will be opened to new
worlds. You can switch to the player's perspective and hear the same
sounds the guitar player heard when he originally played your favorite
song. Or you can switch to audience perspective, listening from the back
row of the theatre. You can even go crazy and crawl into the grand piano,
hearing the band from inside! Still not satisfied and want to build your
own rock band? You can mix different instruments from different
perspectives by simply dragging them onto the 3D stage. Move instruments
around, tweak it, play with it. When you discover your own unique, perfect
mix, you can render it to MP3 or burn a CD and impress your friends with
"your" new band.
3D Interactive Music offers great detail using nearly 20 times the
quantity of information that the latest 24 Bit/192KHz High Definition
Audio spec calls for. Every nuance is preserved, each detail will be
present in your ultimate mix. And you are no longer forced to listen from
one perspective - you now have the ability to hear your favorite songs
from anywhere you desire. 3D Interactive Music uses groundbreaking multi
position synchronization recording, HRTF and DSP technologies to achieve
these incredible effects. And, with an audio resolution up to 32
Bit/384KHz even the pickiest audiophile's ears will be pleased. By using
the latest personalized Head Related Transfer Functions, 3D Interactive
Music will simulate the effect of binaural recording, preserving an
accurate and realistic stereo image at every point in your virtual venue.
3D Interactive Music lets users compare the differences between the
original recording and their own creations, A/B switching on demand,
allowing anything from subtle changes to sweeping alerations. Listeners
demand so much more these days, arguing about studio recordings vs. live
shows. 3D Interactive Music puts you in control. You now have the
flexibility to arrange the venue as you choose. Move that lovely singer to
the front - put that drummer way off stage! You decide!
One of the great advantages of 3D Interactive Music is that it is
extremely friendly to both audiences and producers. There's no new
hardware to buy, nothing to plug in. In fact, experiencing this
revolutionary technology is easy as listening to any of your favorite
songs on your PC. All you need is a Windows PC with standard audio
outputs. Even your five years old "antique" PC can play 3D Interactive
Music without any issues. Any current digital music can easily be
transformed into 3D Interactive Music.
With the release of 3D Interactive Music, we are also releasing 2 albums
demonstrating the use of 3D Interactive Technology: Piano Magic and Silk
Piano Magic is a virtual encyclopedia of grand pianos, featuring five of
the greatest (and most expensive!) grand pianos from around the world.
This is the first album that audiences can enjoy with these amazing piano
sounds heard from different perspectives - with details never heard
before. Featuring three different perspectives, you will experience piano
sound from a full 360 degrees.
Silk Road contains 4 unusually beautiful sounding Chinese instruments: the
Guzheng, Matouqin, Kong Hou and Bawu. Once again utilizing the magic of 3D
Interactive Music, you will experience three different perspectives and
the unique sound of each. Pricing and Availability:
