Poznan, Poland (April 17, 2019)—Zylia has introduced a Windows version of its software for the company’s ZM-1 microphone that enables tablet control over the ZM-1, a compact third-order Ambisonics microphone.
“Field recordings can yield unique audio samples that bring terrific character and richness to a variety of applications,” said Tomasz Żernicki, co-founder and chief technology officer of Zylia. “Sound engineers use the ZM-1 for ambient sound recording in the field and to create spatial soundscapes. Musicians heading to outdoor concerts and jam sessions use the microphone to capture live shows and one-of-a-kind collaborations. Now requiring only the microphone and tripod, a tablet, and headphones, field recording with the ZM-1 is unbelievably simple and convenient.”
Designed for bands and musical ensembles, sound engineers, podcasters, and audio creatives working in 3D audio, Ambisonics and virtual reality, the Zylia ZM-1 delivers 48 kHz/24-bit resolution. The spherical array of 19 digital MEMS microphones together with software can auto-detect sound sources from around the microphone and capture that sound as separate tracks for further editing on a digital audio workstation.
Setting up tablet control over the ZM-1 is straightforward. Users need only install the ZY Zylia LIA ZM-1 Windows 10 driver and Zylia Studio software on a tablet equipped with a 64-bit processor and 64-bit Windows operating system. Recordings can be processed with the Zylia Ambisonics Converter plug-in. Users can convert audio samples to third-order Ambisonics and perform further processing if needed. Zylia software also enables users to fine-tune the position of a sound scene to reflect a particular camera position.
