Spatial Audio in Virtual Reality

January 18 at12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$65 – $85
Learn how to create spatialized 3D sound using Unity in VR.

This workshop uses the Unity 3D game engine to spatialize 3D sound in virtual reality.  The first hour of the workshop is focused on the basics of the Unity 3D user interface to ensure everyone can participate.   Following that, we will learn about the Oculus Spatializer plugin which enables the spatialization of sound for virtual reality.  Finally, we will explore animating the sound position and the properties of spatial sound like distance fall off, reverb, and environment reflections.

The tools and techniques learned in the 3D sound workshop can be applied to virtual sound installations and interactive sound designs.  For artists who like to craft real-world sound installations, these techniques can be used to simulate fully realized art installation without the need for large setups or expensive equipment rentals.  Finally, the Oculus Spatializer, which is the software we will learn, allows for up to fifty 3D sound sources in one project which opens up the sound canvas for artists to explore new ideas.

Limit: 12 Participants
