MNTN's 3D audio engine is extremely flexible. You can create a mix and deliver it in any imaginable format. Back and forth. Besides the standard formats, you can create a custom loudspeaker configuration with as many loudspeakers as your computer can eat.

THE MNTN 3D AUDIO SYSTEM

THE MNTN 3D AUDIO SYSTEM


THE MNTN 3D AUDIO SYSTEM

The MNTN 3D Audio System for use in venues is a custom made hardware solution configured, built, and tested in Berlin. The system includes the production software plus a series of extra features and services vital for professional use cases.

Inputs

MNTN is compatible to all audio interface standards such as Dante, AVB, MADI, AES/EBU, ADAT, or analog. The number of inputs (spatially independent sound sources) is limited only by the chosen interface and the processing capacity. Usually, 128 inputs or more can be processed in realtime.

Outputs

Any number of inputs can be processed and fed to any number of output channels (loudspeakers and subwoofers). The maximum number of outputs is limited only by the particular configuration of the system. Usually, our systems are capable of addressing 64 loudspeakers or more. As with the inputs, any audio interface standard can be used, according to your needs.

3D-Audio Rendering

MNTN is based on object-based 3D audio rendering, which means that any input format can be rendered to any loudspeaker configuration. Rendering is processed in realtime with minimal latency, allowing 3D sound for live performances.

Loudspeaker configuration

Loudspeakers can be positioned in almost any place and in any number, around, above and below the audience. This means that playback is not limited to a specific loudspeaker arrangement such as 5.1 Surround. Of course, MNTN will let you output standard audio formats such as stereo 2.0, or 5.1 surround sound. Moreover, the system even outputs a 3D audio format that can be experienced through headphones, called binaural 3D audio.

Services

We will configure, build, and test your individual MNTN 3D Audio System. According to your needs, we can implement the system on location including loudspeaker tuning. Although MNTN is easy to use and a manual is available for download, we also offer an individual workshop to make you and your colleagues comfortable handling the system. In collaboration with the Berlin based sound scenography studio TAUCHER Sound Environments, we offer creative production support for artists and sound designers as well as workshops to introduce sound artists and musicians to the world of 3D sound design.

Creating Content

Creating content for MNTN 3D audio systems is easy because you'll only need a MacBook, headphones, and the MNTN app for artists to get started. This means that content can be created anywhere on the planet (and any place beyond with an internet connection). When as artists arrive at the venue, they can connect their working session to the speker setup at the venue with a mouse-click and keep working on any MNTN 3D audio system.
