In this video, John Escobar, a professor in the Music Production and Engineering department for Berklee College of Music, uncovers five smart tips for mixing ambisonic sound. Tips include what is needed, such as a DAW that’s capable of handling multichannel tracks, such as Reaper and Pro Tools, a variety of plug-ins, a format converter, and a playback converter, to monitor what you’re hearing. One of the reasons immersive audio works so well is that it gives us the ability to replicate psychoacoustic cues similar to the way we hear naturally. When working in virtual reality, headtracked audio allows the viewer to explore the environment depending on your position as you move, which gives you a more realistic sense that you’re physically in the space you’re seeing. Escobar’s tips also include AB conversion, mixing workflow, monitoring while working, and output delivery format options.
