Aaton Digital and Sennheiser Partner on AMBEO

Aaton Digital announced a partnership with Sennheiser that includes their AMBEO technology interface for immersive audio in their CantarX3 and CantarMini location sound recorders.

Aaton Digital is a member of Sennheiser’s newly-announced AMBEO for VR Partnership Program, which was created to ensure quality in collaborations with manufacturers of field recorders, VR live cameras and platforms, mixing plug-ins and live streaming software.

Aaton Digital’s CantarX3 and CantarMini digital multitrack sound recorders are used for film, broadcast and music production.


“The future of audio is in immersive sound experience, and perhaps this is nowhere more apparent than in the field of VR,” said Véronique Larcher, co-director AMBEO at Sennheiser. “With the launch of the AMBEO VR Mic last year we have provided an easy-to-use tool for 3D audio productions, while our AMBEO Blueprints website provides ample information on recording and mixing 3D audio. Now our new partnership program helps content creators to design the full VR experience with ease.”
