Though it all started with mono but the success story of the recordings began in the 1960s then with the stereo record followed by the CD. Everything in stereo - but music recordings continued to develop. Quadrophony, surround sound and today immersive (3-D) audio mixes enable completely new and impressive listening experiences. Music no longer has to be compressed into two channels / stereo. The dynamics and transparency increase with more channels. Not to mention possible sound effects.
Film has taken advantage of this since its creation. Almost every DVD has a 5.1 surround mix, Blu-rays and UHDs even have 3-D mixes with Dolby Atmos.
What film can do, music can too, and thus enables the most natural form of listening, because we perceive sound in 3-D every day. In front; behind; above and below us.
Efficient mixing processes from immersive (3-D) audio via surround to stereo result in marketing costs on Blu-ray, UHD, in the cinema and at home cinema, with a manageable and affordable cost.
We would be happy to advise you on production implementations in multi-channel.
