Below are three audio clips selected from the “Web Clips”. The first two I selected to demonstrate that Zoom H2 four channel recordings sound better when encoded by VZE into ImmersiveStereo™.
The first clip “Stereo Mix” was rendered by combining the two H2 files using a standard quad to stereo mix-down that can be done using any Digital Audio Workstation or DAW.
The second uses only VZE to render ImmersiveStereo™ from the pair of H2 stereo files. In my own humble yet biased opinion the ImmersiveStereo™ Mix has a distinctive and desirable spatial quality. I notice it in the lack of impact on the ear drum, and the sensation that you’re immersed in the scene rather than listening to a recording.
In the next clip I recorded the Hey! Ho! Let’s Go! Band live at U-31 in San Diego with a Zoom H4n. I fed front of house board mix into the H4n’s line inputs and used the H4n’s built-in stereo mics to record ambiance.

This two day Ferrari rally from Los Angeles to San Diego and back offered the opportunity to capture the voices of rare vintage and late model Ferraris. The unique voices of these cars was easily captured by the Zoom H2 in 4 channel mode and rendered in ImmersiveStereo™ as a WAV file, then compressed into an MP3 file for ease of distribution over the Internet.
Equipment Used: Zoom H2 in 4 Channel mode, and Vortex Zoom Encoder software to create ImmersiveStereo™.
