Voyage Audio Now Shipping Spatial Mic Dante 360 Ambisonic Microphone

voyageaudio spatialmic dante

Voyage Audio announced that its Spatial Mic Dante, a hybrid analog-digital second order ambisonic microphone, is now shipping.

With Audinate’s Dante audio networking built-in, Voyage Audio says there is no need for complex multimicrophone and preamp setups — plug in an Ethernet cable and focus on recording immersive audio for VR, surround sound, ATMOS, spatial and stereo music, concerts and live broadcasts. With the flexibility to output complex polar patterns of your choice and aim around the soundfield, Spatial Mic Dante brings the freedom to experiment with sound in completely new ways.

Included with Spatial Mic Dante is the new MicNet control app that lets you remotely adjust connected microphones on the network. Using filters created in an anechoic chamber, especially for Spatial Mic Dante, the Spatial Mic Converter plug-in (VST & AAX) now works for post-processing the entire Spatial Mic family — just select which mic the recording was created with from the new dropdown menu. Download the plugin and newly released example sessions for free on the Voyage Audio website and explore audio in 3D.
