Binaural recording with ZYLIA
The ZYLIA ZM-1 microphone has a lot of applications. One of them is the possibility to record your sound scenes and represent them in a binaural way. What does binaural actually mean?
According to Wikipedia,
Since ZYLIA ZM-1 is a 19-channel microphone array, it is possible to simply record 360 sound and convert it to a binaural representation.
It is easy. Just convert the 19-channel audio recorded with ZYLIA ZM-1 to ambisonics, using ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter, then use a binaural decoder VST plugin such as the one from the IEM suite (https://plugins.iem.at/).
