Sydney, Australia (May 7, 2020)—Røde Microphones has unveiled its new Ambisonic Sound Library, a collection of 360° surround sound ambisonic recordings, free to download for license-free use in projects.
It’s not the company’s first venture into ambisonics, having released its SoundField by Røde NT-SF1 ambisonic microphone in 2018 and the accompanying SoundField by Røde Plug-in, which allows users to manipulate the mic’s recordings in post-production, changing the mic directivity, position and rotation, allowing users to create everything from a 7.1.4 surround mix to a fully head-tracked 360° soundscape for immersive video.
The library, then, highlights recordings made with the mic and plug-in over the last 18 months by numerous engineers, including composer/field recordist Watson Wu and musician/sound designer Richard Devine. The Library contains hundreds of royalty-free ambisonic recordings, ranging from atmospheric soundscapes to specific sound effects, all available for use in films, podcasts and more.
Users can preview and download the ambisonic files and load them into the free SoundField by Røde Plug-in in any DAW.
