AX32 Makes Ambisonics Dreams Come True at The Royal Danish Academy of Music 

Thanks to new audio formats such as Dolby Atmos, Auro 3D and Ambisonics, immersive audio has become something of a buzzword lately. But while the individual formats may be new, the idea of immersive sound is far from new...

We met with Jesper Andersen, Associate Professor and Head of Tonmeister Studies, at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, Denmark, to learn more about a brand-new concert hall with a very immersive twist and some AX32-magic at the core.

48 Audio Channels with SPQ Processing
In total, the Ambisonics system in the immersive hall comprises a staggering 48 channels with 44 speakers and 4 subs. The speakers are installed to form a hemisphere as accurately as possible.

However, that was very difficult to achieve. For instance, the hall is rectangular, which means that the speakers on the sides are actually too close to the listeners compared to the speakers at the front and rear.

But luckily, there was a solution to this problem – our SPQ speaker management card for the AX32 that was already chosen to handle all of the D/A conversion and audio-routing. 

“We used a measurement microphone and determined the distance to the speaker that was the farthest away, and then we added delay to the rest in order to emulate a perfect circle in each speaker plane.

Using the AX32 with the SPQ card brought us so much closer to the perfect hemisphere, as we measured and compensated each channel to deliver within a 1-millisecond margin. The AX32 / SPQ combo was an absolute genius solution to this problem!”
