GENELEC Partner Session: Creating an Immersive Audio Room
Will Eggleston and Paul Stewart from Genelec’s US office will discuss some of the thinking that goes into making a purpose built or temporary immersive monitoring space. Having just created the stunning new Genelec USA Experience Center in Boston, Will and Paul will draw on this recent project as a practical example of modern immersive room design. Among the topics covered will be making the transition from stereo to 5.1 to 3D immersive layouts, cabling and signal flow, monitor selection and mounting, listening distance vs. SPL, bass management and calibration. This is a great real-world insight into the practicalities of creating a high quality immersive studio.
10:00 PT - 11:00 PT
Immersive Audio for Live Events
The live industry is living a transition from traditional left-right, mostly dual mono, to immersive systems. In this workshop, specific challenges of immersive audio for live are presented and addressed. These challenges are mostly related to the scale and diversity of audiences and performance spaces, from pre-production, to touring, to post-production. They can be overcome adopting a full system approach as proposed by the L-ISA technology within L-Acoustics ecosystem. This approach combines specific tools and guidelines for the design of the loudspeaker system, object oriented mixing tools and specific 3D audio algorithms for loudspeakers and headphones. Presenters: Scott Sugden: Product and Technology Outreach Manager, L-Acoustics, Westlake Village, CA Etienne Corteel: Director of Education & Scientific Outreach, L-Acoustics, Marcoussis, France

Audio Futures: Technologies for Games
Where does research aiming to create virtual sounds that are indistinguishable from reality intersect with today’s cutting edge game audio technologies? Scott will discuss both some of the novel experiences Facebook Reality Labs Research is building today and their implications for current games, both screen- and head-mounted-display-based. We’ll also cover both nascent and evolving creative and technical best practices for audio storytelling in the immersive worlds of virtual, mixed, and augmented reality.

(3 hr + Q&A & Prize Draw)LIVE MASTERCLASS: Producing High Quality Immersive Audio
Via link on Zoom and using AudioMovers. Producing immersive content is, nowadays, more accessible than it ever was, thanks to new tools, which are available for free or at very low costs. But achieving great results, compatible with high quality standards, is still not an easy task. In this hands-on workshop we unveil the secrets of 360 audio production during 3 intensive hours. Attendees will learn to capture and mix 3D audio using object-oriented solutions and will be able to create immersive content suitable for a variety of applications, such as live concerts, studio recordings, advertising, gaming, VR, AR, e-sports, etc. With: Martin Muscatello (@360MusicLab) Brian Glasscock (Sennheiser) Achim Fell (Dear Reality) Host: Andres Mayo (@360MusicLab) Andres will announce the Prize Draw for an AVID ProTools License!
16:30 PT - 17:00 PT
Dolby Partner Solution: Atmos Music Creation with Studio 1 LA
At the leading edge of immersive audio, Karma Auger and Erich Gobel welcome guests into their state of the art mixing studio to share their creation theory and techniques for mixing in Dolby Atmos. Guests will learn about Studio 1 LA's Atmos education series, their work in anime sound design, and their tips for getting started in Dolby Atmos. Speakers: Karma Auger & Erich Gobel – Studio 1 LA Host: Ben Givarz – Dolby Laboratories
17:00 PT - 18:00 PT
Traditional 5.1 as a delivery vehicle for immersive audio in cinema
For nearly 30 years the predominant surround audio format for cinema, home video, streaming, marketing, and music has been 5.1. Workflows for content creation, delivery, streaming, and playback are common, robust, and well understood. Neural:X from DTS allows for a variety of immersive playback scenarios using a standard, codec-agnostic, 5.1 deliverable which provides a simple, economical solution to broadening the footprint for immersive audio. Using a similar concept to stereo-surround 4-2-4 workflows, we demonstrate a system whereby an immersive audio mix can be acoustically encoded into a 5.1, then decoded back to an immersive environment. This method allows for a single delivery of a 5.1 which has been created and monitored for use in any sound field, including mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1, immersive, as well as speaker and headphone virtualization.

Partner Session from Fraunhofer: MPEG-H Authoring Suite for post-production workflows
With MPEG-H content, producers can enable features that create an entirely new audio experience for consumers. This session explains how you, as a producer, can do that. MPEG-H Authoring Suite (MAS) is a set of applications that facilitates the easy, fast and intuitive production of MPEG-H Audio content. In this webinar bit, Yannik Grewe demonstrates the MAS tools for production, monitoring and quality control as well as their interoperability.
