How can we all get started with spatial audio ?
XRBASE and VRDAYS are very pleased to increase the focus on – and the need for – more realistic audio in immersive settings
We have invited three CEO’s from three German companies to Amsterdam to elaborate on democratizing spatial audio and insights from productions.
Dear Reality’s “dearVR Spatial Connect” is a software tool that can lower the entrance point for spatial audio. The users can mix audio for VR in VR and intuitive understand the impact.
No audio engineering background is required.
Dear Reality is the company behind the software and has recently received funding by Sennheiser in order to improve immersive audio (creation and rendering of immersive audio in object-based and scene-based formats)
‘Dear Reality’ will be joined by ‘DELTA Soundworks’, a VR Sound Design Company , and ‘VRTONUNG’, a 360° Sound Production company
This is a night for all that takes sound seriously – and for the those who wants to take spatial sound seriously, but still finds is too big of a hassle.

CEO | VRTONUNG
Martin Rieger has been specialized in cinematic virtual reality video productions and is one of the view freelancers who work full time in that specific field and wrote his master thesis about it.
With his studies of media technology and production, he has a good overview of state of the art technology, not only limited to the sound, which is what can give him advantages over classic sound engineers.
He has been working for varies feature films, documentaries and commercials as a production sound mixer, re-recording engineer and music composer.
This is where he realized 360-degree videos is exactly what he was looking for, small but stunning projects he can handle on his own, thus delivering the sound on vision from day one of shooting to the final delivery after taking care of post-production.
