What is 3D audio?
Because humans are binaural, meaning we have two ears, we are able to localise sound by comparing how each ear receives a sound slightly differently. ‘Binaural audio’, or ‘3D audio’, refers to recording or processing audio in a way that mimics this human sound localisation. The goal is to trick your brain into believing that the sounds are surrounding you in a 3D audio soundscape. Binaural audio is designed for playback on headphones.
Why is there a volume test near the beginning of the recording?
We like to use a large dynamic range in our recordings to create a realistic representation of the real world. However, the loud moments can be sudden and unpredictable, so we therefore play you a volume test that is a similar volume to the loudest moment in our production.
The volume test helps you set your listening volume to a) ensure you do not need to adjust your volume during playback, and b) to help protect your hearing.
Simply set your listening volume during the volume test so that it is not uncomfortably loud. Afterward, it is advised that you avoid raising the volume during playback.
Which headphones should I use?
Higher quality headphones will of course produce a more immersive experience as the soundscape will sound more realistic, but just as important is your listening environment. For best results, listen in a quiet environment or use noise cancelling headphones.

Yes! We have completed numerous private commissions for both multi-national corporations and small businesses. Please contact us with details on your project to enquire about a commission.
Can you produce 3D sound, 5D sound, and 8D sound?
Of course. Especially given that these are, in fact, all the same exact thing! 8D might sound fancier than 3D, but it’s just a little marketing magic. We consistently use the most cutting edge production tools and we can assure you there remains only three dimensions.
