In this video, John Escobar, a professor in the Music Production and Engineering department for Berklee College of Music, instructs you on how to use Facebook Spatial Workstation 5 to showcase ambisonic recordings. Beginning with an overview of Audio 360 plug-ins—Spatialiser, Control, Video Player, Converter, Meter, Stereo Loudness, and Encoder—Escobar demonstrates how to set up your session. He then shows how to make sure your positioning of sound is correct with how the microphone was set up in relation to the camera, and how to lock the sound to picture, enabling it to be headtrackable information. In this instance, he is working with footage of a string quartet at Boston Symphony Hall, and Escobar shows on the screen how to select different players, and assign spatialized and headlocked destinations for those players’ sounds. You’ll also learn how to export a mix, and how to encode a final 360 video.
