A new series of monthly meetups taking place at Somerset House Studios, focusing on new spatial sound technologies, with talks and discussions around creative uses of spatial and AR audio.

This meetup will run as a participatory workshop aimed at getting everyone started with the basics of producing spatial sound mixes and rendering them as binaural stereo – using Reaper and the Ambisonic Toolkit.

This will cover using mono, stereo, and ambisonic sound sources, applying spatial effects and panning and moving sound sources with automation.

No experience with Reaper or ATK is necessary but it’d be useful if you’ve at least a little familiarity with working with digital audio.

Bring a laptop and headphones if you have them! If you don’t, we’ll pair you up with someone who has the equipment.

In addition, there’ll be a little time for announcements, presentations and requests for feedback/discussion on your own projects. If you’d like a 5-minute slot to present something or start a discussion, please let us know!

Throughout the evenings, attendees are welcome to ask questions and interact with both the speaker and one another.

Each session will be hosted by BBC R&D and will feature a presentation by invited guests.  

BBC R&D has been at the forefront of innovation in media technology since the founding of public service broadcasting in the UK.

Based in Research Labs in the North and South of the UK, the department is comprised of just over 200 highly specialist research engineers, scientists, ethnographers, designers, producers and innovation professionals working on every aspect of the broadcast chain, from Audiences, Production and Distribution right through to the Programmes themselves.
