Three innovative and easy to use software programs form the Vortex Surround product offering: Designer, Mixer, and Encoder.
Each may be used individually or together as elements of a complete production chain. They also work transparently with other audio applications and can be used to provide multichannel sound capabilities for authoring environments that are otherwise less capable.
Sound moves around us every day and the human ear is capable of discerning both the location and relative direction of its motion. “3D sound” or “sound spatialization” is the process of placing and controlling the movement of sounds in space. Though “sound spatialization” has been of interest to composers and sound designers for years, recent breakthroughs in computing, software design and psychoacoustics have brought this exciting realm of sonic expression within reach of creators and engineers in all aspects of design and production. And with the proliferation of surround sound technology and surround media standards for cinema, gaming, computing and home theatre, any consumer now has access to the power of spatial sound within their own home media environments.
Immersive Media Research is dedicated to providing sound designers, musicians, and composers with professional, affordable, and powerful software products that address the entire production chain associated with the development of multichannel and binaural audio content.
Our tools are designed to inspire and enable surround sound content development, replacing the tedium once associated with this work with efficient, fun-to-use, powerfully expressive tools for designing sound in space.
