Boom 3D Surround Ambiences: Urban USA
Our second entry of our brand-new sound effect series 3D SURROUND is here: ROOM TONES EUROPE. This library offers an enormous variety of different room ambiences. From busy transportation areas, malls and warehouses over congress centers and green houses to swimming pools and public libraries. ROOM TONES EUROPE covers all different scenarios you could possibly need, delivered fully surround with unprecedented precision, spatial impression and clarity. Undoubtedly, this can be easily used in stereo productions as well. Either chose the angle yourself or use the stereo version (included in 3D SURROUND).
URBAN USA – 3D SURROUND AMBIENCES
This library, delivered in our brand-new 3D Surround format, is the perfect fit for your 3D urban ambient scenes. From calm downtown areas to busy crossroads and markets, it features both in- and outdoor subway areas, train stations, highways, parks, fountains, urban beaches, and much more. If your next project is set in an urban area, this collection of urban sounds entails everything your needs require. The duration of the files varies from 3 to 11 minutes to give you more flexibility and less repetitions in your sound design. URBAN USA contains both detailed sound scenes as well as quiet basic layers.
ENTER A NEW ERA OF SURROUND SOUND FX LIBRARIES
SUITABLE FOR ANY SURROUND APPLICATION, EVEN AND ESPECIALLY IMMERSIVE AUDIO LIKE AURO 3D, DOLBY ATMOS, 360° VIDEOS AND VR
URBAN – USA is the first product of our brand new sound effect series 3D SURROUND. It marks a new era of surround sound FX libraries with unprecedented precision, spatial impression and clarity. 3D Surround delivers better results where conventional surround techniques reach their limits. This occurs especially, although not exclusively, in VR, where events must sound 100% convincing depending on the rotation and tilt of the user’s head. With our new 3D SURROUND series, you are ideally equipped for not only VR, but any other application that requires high-definition and crystal-clear surround sound.
HIGH-PRECISION SOUND LOCATION
Conventional surround sound often provides a somewhat diffuse image of the sound source, making it hard to precisely pinpoint the direction where the sound is coming from and where it is moving to. 3D Surround draws a crystal-clear picture of the source recording for a complete sound experience.
THE 3RD DIMENSION – SUITED FOR VR & DOLBY ATMOS
3D Surround adds a height layer as a third dimension compared to regular surround. The sound not only reaches the listener’s ear from the side, but also from above. This results in a much better localisation of the sound source and a much more immersive listening experience which makes it the perfect surround type for VR applications and Dolby Atmos.
RECORDED WITH THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
Our 3D Surround libraries are recorded with the highly-acclaimed SCHOEPS ORTF-3D setup, a cuboid 8ch level/time difference ambience setup. The main benefit is an additional height layer compared to regular surround recording setups. It consists of 8 supercardioid microphones.
The height layer offers a much wider range of spatial sound effects and a more realistic three-dimensional reproduction. Therefore, it provides a clearer representation of spatial depth, a more natural surround impression, improved envelopment, and an authentic feel.
