A new platform for immersive and object-orientated sound production for the film and television postproduction market, Fairlight’s 3D Audio Workspace reckons to provide a ‘comprehensive and diverse environment for 3D audio production’.

Fairlight AirPanOne of the features of 3DAW is AirPan, allowing operators to use a Virtual Reality (VR) style input to position and control images in a 3D space. ‘You can literally reach out into the airspace monitored by the controller and by just moving your fingers in the air, you can pan, rotate, tilt and spread your sound in space,’ says Fairlight CTO, Tino Fibaek.

3DAW adds immersive sound capabilities to an existing digital audio workstation, while remaining compatible with an established workflow. This open platform configuration support VST and RTAS plug-ins, as well as ASIO for I/O and sync sharing.

‘The philosophy behind Fairlight’s 3DAW is to give sound mixers a postproduction solution that works with all platforms,’ Fibaek explains. ‘Different deliverables require different technologies, so Fairlight’s immersive platform provides the best of both worlds, supporting object orientated implementations such as Dolby’s Atmos and DTS’ MDA and fixed bus formats in 2D and 3D, from stereo through to 5.1 and all the way up to NHK’s impressive 22.2 format.’

The system’s user definable B-chain processing supports up to 34 discrete speaker outputs, allowing sound mixers to switch instantly between different surround formats, different speaker sets, speaker muting and soloing and comprehensive metering.
