Play the space

 

Create immersive listening experiences and perform spatial music with multichannel loudspeaker setups in custom 2D and 3D layouts. Gabrieli, Stockhausen, Kraftwerk: the idea of spatial music is grounded on the centuries-old history of immersive works created by inspiring artists—and it is as vital as ever. Imagine how much effort, money, and sometimes helicopters it took to make 3D audio happen back in the days. Today, you can grab a bunch of affordable loudspeakers, connect them to The Sound of the Mountain and play the space as an instrument.

 

Connect any DAW

 

The MNTN Production Suite comes with a VST, AU, and AAX plugin. This means that you can connect any digital audio workstation to the MNTN spatial audio rendering app.

Scene: The fullscreen panner

 

The fullscreen panner is designed for automating sound sources while keeping track of the whole picture. The MNTN plugins and the MNTN app communicate in both directions, so the sound sources you move can be automated in both in the DAW and in the MNTN app.

Custom loudspeaker layouts

 

Thanks to MNTN’s object based approach, audio content in any format such as MNTN 3D, stereo, surround, quadrophony, ambisonics, or Auro 3D can be acoustically projected on up to 128 loudspeakers and subwoofers in almost any standardised or custom spatial configuration, 2D and 3D.

 

Up to 128 input and output channels

 

Depending on what audio interface you have, up to 128 audio input and output channels can be used — even with two different audio interfaces for inputs and outputs. By using Audinate’s Dante Virtual Soundcard, you can connect up to 64 sound sources to the MNTN Spatial Sound System.

Binaural 3D audio for headphones

 

Start working on headphones by using the binaural listening mode. Later you can switch the playback mode to any multichannel configuration and finish your 3D mix on a loudspeaker set-up.

3D audio mastering

 

A variety of additional export formats is available for content exchange with other systems, including ambisonics, binaural, stereo, and surround, as well as a custom loudspeaker print-out for channel-based playback systems.
