Sonosphere has announced two new courses taking place on February 4 and April 21 in Marlow and Knowsley respectively. Aimed at sound professionals from both the film and music worlds, as well as music producers, audio engineers and immersive content creators, Ambisonics Workflow training will provide a hands-on, practical understanding of the immersive content production, from capture to delivery.

As the world of immersive audio continues to develop, there is a greater need for audio professionals to become competent in understanding and applying the principles behind the latest advances in immersive audio workflows. Sonosphere’s award-winning trainers will bridge the knowledge gap utilising their expertise, state-of-the-art hardware and software from industry leading providers such as Sennheiser, Sound Devices, and Dear Reality.

The day’s agenda includes an introduction to Ambisonics Workflow as well as an in-depth overview of the hardware used in capturing, followed by practical location recording session and discussion around Ambisonics essentials. The second half of the day will see participants looking at Spatialisation and Mixing Workflow, after which a practical session on 360 Post Production will be held. The end of the day will see the group navigating through the depths of Ambisonics Advanced, finishing off with the last practical session focussing on Mastering and Uploading.

Upon completion of the course, all participants will receive a certificate confirming their understanding and ability of applying the principles of Ambisonics Workflow for Immersive Content Production.

As an additional benefit, all attendees on the course will receive an offer for 50% discount on the Dear VR ambisonics bundle containing dearVR PRO, dearVR Spatial connect and dearVR AMBI MICRO, with a potential saving of over £350. Participants can also make use of the special offer from Pink Noise for a MixPre-6 & AMBEO VR mic at a 10% off their web price for £1845 inc-VAT, with a saving of £205.
