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.

  • University of Derby at the cutting edge of new sound environments

    The University of Derby will be the first university in the UK to have a Wave1 processor installed.

    Swiss-based company Sonic Emotion are to supply the University with a Wave1 processor on loan. The processor will be used for teaching and academic research by Music and Performing Arts students and staff.

    Sonic Emotion specialise in several fields related to 3D sound for professional applications, including hardware/software design for real time/low latency and interactive sound rendering.

    Following the success of their Wave1 3D in Europe and Northern America, Sonic Emotion are looking to grow their market share in the UK, using the University of Derby as their first demonstration facility.

    John Crossley is the Head of both the MA Music Production and BSc Music Technology with Production at the University of Derby. He said of the project: “3D sound is something we take very seriously here at the University of Derby. We are pleased to be forging strong links with such a state of the art company. Our staff and students can’t wait to get their hands on the kit.”

    Dr Richard Hodges, Deputy Head of Performing Arts, added: “We are delighted that this relationship with Sonic Emotion offers our students the opportunity to be at the forefront of development in 3D sound.”

    Dr Etienne Corteel, Chief Science Officer at Sonic Emotion, commented: “We, at Sonic Emotion are most happy that the students of the University of Derby will experience the Wave1 technology for 3D sound mixing, spatial sound reinforcement and interactive installations. We look forward to hearing about their creations and receiving their feedback.”

    Prospective students and local secondary schools will be able to see a demonstration of the Wave1 processor at the University’s Music Production Show and Music Industry Day, on Tuesday 3 March 2015, at its Markeaton Street site. The processor will also be available for viewing on University Open Days throughout 2015 on:

    • Saturday 28 February
    • Saturday 6 June
    • Friday 19 June
    • Saturday 26 September

  • HARMAN’s Studer and Sonic Emotion Present 3D Speaker Management Systems—Mixer Integration Concepts Paper at Tonmeistertagung Conference

    Studer Associate Director of R&D, Peter Glaettli and Etienne Corteel of Sonic Emotion presented a paper titled, 3D Speaker Management Systems – Mixer Integration Concepts last Sunday, 23 November, at the Tonmeistertagung conference in Cologne.

    The paper addresses the benefits of 3D speaker management systems over traditional systems, the differences between these systems, practical implementation practices for 3D speaker management systems, and more.

    “At Studer, we firmly believe 3D sound control has a place in many applications, beyond the highly niche projects where special spatial effects are required,” Glaettli said. “To that end, it’s important to educate the industry on the best ways to implement 3D speaker management systems, while also showing that Studer is integrating with third-party systems, which is key to widespread implementation in the future.”
