Mach1

Spatial Audio Simplified


What’s Up?

Mach1 preserves traditional audio engineering best practices enabling the artist to be in full creative control. We are not just looking to the masters of the past, but connecting and expanding on their core values and motivations, making sure that we bring ourselves, as craftsmen, into emerging and new mediums. Defending craft matters. Without it, our work and innovations are just research and development for the existing repressive system. A Renaissance of sound is happening as sound quality is critical for maintaining immersion and our openness to this fundamental change should not create footholds that undermine the craft in service of the technical. Unlike other spatial formats, using the Mach1 VVBP (Virtual Vector Based Panning) system, all surround and spatial rendered sound field formats are ingestible without alteration to the sound field. Mach1 Spatial achieves a perfect 1:1 with what the audio producer or engineer created, with no processing or filtering effects to simulate directionality at the expense of quality. With Mach1 the creative mix is the technical mix.

If you create content

Avoid mixing in confusing systems that require you to use their processing effects (unless you specifically desire so). Use the same mixing environments from stereo mixing or surround mixing; be able to hard-pan to any direction in a full divergence system. No processing effects are added during or after mixing (unless you specifically desire so), ensuring your mix is retained as a master format and can be safely transcoded to any other surround or spatial audio format without degradation. Creatively decide what spatial mixing means yourself in our vector panning format, define what “directional” or “distant” means yourself, as expected in post-production.

If you develop apps

Mach1 Spatial is designed to safely and easily to add what is missing from object audio engines and solutions. Adding traditional post-production and sound field mixing of all formats to any solution. Lightweight and modular design for any development’s native audio gain stage so that no proprietary codecs metadata or file containers are required. Safely allow any other solution to be added later without compromise.
