Stage Tec Develops 3D Audio Mixing Console In Aurus Platinum

At the recent IBC Show in Amsterdam, Berlin-based Stage Tec introduced a new 5.1.4 multichannel format with Z-plane in its Aurus platinum mixing console for 3D audio mixing applications.

Three-dimensional audio is becoming increasingly important in the professional audio arena. The expansive soundscapes that 3D audio creates evoke a more emotional response for consumers not only in music and TV productions or cinemas, but also at live events and in theaters.

Stage Tec’s Aurus has offered true multichannel format capability for parallel mixes in 5.1 and stereo or mixes in 7.1 for many years. Following Software Release 4.7, the new multichannel format 5.1.4 is available in Aurus platinum and enables 3D audio mixing with four overhead speakers.

The pan-pot in the channel strip and the joystick in the Aurus platinum center section have been given Z parameters for the new feature. In operation the user can choose between X-Y and Z-Y. Project configuration has been expanded and ten-channel monitoring integrated.

The Aurus was launched in 2003 and is currently in its fourth generation. From extensive control functions and intelligent audio processing features for highly efficient operation to the integration of third-party products, Stage Tec continues to introduce numerous software releases and new functions to Aurus to satisfy the ever-increasing requirements in broadcast, recording and live environments. Software release 4.7 will be available soon.
