Absolute 3D™
Traditional 5.1

Absolute 3D™
Less Speakers means More Sound
Sonic Emotion Absolute 3D™ sound technology provides an innovative unique solution for an immersive natural 3D sound reproduction by implementing audio products with sound field control from only 2, 3, 4 or 6+ channels using a single compact device (and an optional subwoofer internal or external).
All other single device solutions are only truly effective within a narrow range in front of the device (the sweet spot), whereas Sonic Emotion’s Absolute 3D extends across the entire listening area for an amazing listening experience.

Benefit from Absolute 3D

  • Broad sweet spot with elevated sound image to impact the entire listening audience.
  • Precise placement of audio cues for powerful impact from one compact device.
  • Maximize volume output without creating distortion.
  • Improves dialog for clear and intelligible vocals.
  • Deeper and richer bass for enhanced low frequency response.
  • Windows, Android & iOS compatibility.

  • Sonic Emotion introduces BinauralWave

    Sonic Emotion is introducing BinauralWave. BinauralWave comes as a replacement of the Wave I 3D sound processor for offline content production in object-oriented format. BinauralWave can perform rendering of your 32 input channels in various formats:

    – Binaural under headphones for on the road adjustments

    – 5.0 or 8.0 loudspeaker rendering in the studio

    – 2.0 for stereo production compatibility

    The content created can be directly played back on WaveI with any valid speaker configuration by simply routing the outputs of your preferred DAW to the WaveI input. No further adjustment required! Create in the train; play back in the Arena!

    One license of BinauralWave is granted for free for any up to date WaveI installation (version 4.X to be upgraded to V4.2). Licenses can be bought by packages for larger installations.

    BinauralWave is mac only so far. We’re working on a windows porting. Stay tuned!

    The Mixage Fou contest celebrates its 7th edition introducing a new category “Object WFS Sonic Emotion”. We offer 20 licenses of BinauralWave to help participants creating content. The winners will be played back over a WaveI installation during the award winning ceremony.

  • OnOff audio purchased Wave I

    Our Wave I has been purchased by a major French rental company (On Off), please check the interview of Yannick Betis and Eric Barthelemy, owners of OnOff, talking about their intentions to use Wave I in touring.

    http://www.soundlightup.com/

    Yannick Betis, CEO OnOff Audio “Sonic Emotion Labs is a French-Swiss company that works on 3D sound and spatialization. We started by testing with our sound engineers on a small show, and then we made a very successful first test in an Arena. So we decided to invest in these processors. The first date to be equipped will be held at Paris Bercy (AccorHotels Arena) and then the Zenith of Toulouse in December. The system will allow us to do effects, movements on stage and a full reconstruction of the soundstage. And it works very well. Thanks to the processor, with not even ten programmed effects on the show, the rendering is absolutely amazing.”
