“Triste” (meaning “Sad” in English) is a bossa nova song composed by Antônio Carlos Jobim, who also wrote lyrics for it in both English and Portuguese. Jobim wrote the song in late 1966.

Geoff from geoffmobile.com shows a recording of a jazz trio playing a jazz song. Geoff filmed a 360 video with his Samsung Gear 360 video camera in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The sound is captured in Ambisonic surround using Zoom H2n and Ambisonics is best experienced with headphones. When you rotate the video, the sound mix will change to your orientation.

Filmed with Samsung Gear 360 camera in 4K resolution. I put the Gear 360 camera and Zoom H2n on light stands and filmed the jazz trio.
Thanks for watching! Cheers, Geoff

Spatial Audio Test with Zoom H2n and Gear 360

82 views. By in 360 Videos, Ambisonic Sound, Arts, Latest Videos, Marketing, Media, People, Technology, Vancouver, Virtual Reality. February 19, 2017.

Watch this video using headphones, and then spin the video around to hear the ambisonic immersive sound.

This test video was recorded using Samsung Gear 360 (for 360 video) and Zoom H2n (for Ambisonic spatial audio).

For my tutorial video on how to edit Spatial Audio with Ambisonics using Adobe Premiere, please visit: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wk-fsuy84oM

How to edit Ambisonic 360 Spatial Audio sound in Adobe Premiere for Zoom H2n workflow tutorial

227 views. By in 360 Videos, Ambisonic Sound, Arts, Ideas, Interviews, Latest Videos, Marketing, Media, People, Technology, Vancouver, Virtual Reality, Vlogs. February 19, 2017.

Geoff from geoffmobiile.com shows a tutorial video on the workflow for Adobe Premiere for how to capture and process the spatial audio (ambisonic surround sound) from the Zoom H2n, and then edit it to go along with a 360 video from the Samsung Gear 360, using Adobe Premiere, Audacity, ffmpeg, and the Google 360 Metadata Injector Tool.

This allows you to create an immersive sound experience when watching a 360 video.

For my other tutorial on how to Process and Edit video from the Samsung Gear 360 Camera, please visit:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=wO7FNAnqkH0

Contents of tip.txt as shown in the video (command to run in process.bat):
ffmpeg -i video-input.mp4 -i sound-input.wav -channel_layout 4.0 -c:v copy -c:a copy final_video.mov

Addendum:
Please note that there is a missing step in this video.
At time 11:38 in the tutorial, BEFORE importing the 4 audio tracks into Audacity, be sure to change the Audacity Project Rate (Hz) (in the bottom left of the audacity window) to 48000 instead of the default which is 44100. Doing this step will improve the audio quality.

Links:

Zoom H2n firmware update to version 2.0 or greater to support spatial audio:

Audacity:

VR Spatial Audio Tip:
Zoom H2n in spatial audio mode records B-format (ambiX) not (FuMa)
Both have 4 Channels:
ambiX = WYZX
FuMa = WXYZ

Youtube format (ambiX) – WYZX
W – omnidirectional
Y – left/right
Z – up/down
X – forward/back

Alternative format (FuMa) – WXYZ
W – omnidirectional
X – forward/back
Y – left/right
Z – up/down

What are W, X, Y and Z?
With Ambisonic technology, the directionality of the sound field is composed of spherical harmonic components. The zero-order component is termed W and is omnidirectional. The first-order components are figure-of-eight (lemniscate) responses which point forward, left and up. These are termed X, Y and Z, respectively. In practice, second-order and higher components are ignored.
The W, X, Y and Z channels are collectively called B-Format.

The fact that the Z component can be recorded creates the opportunity for periphonic (full-sphere) reproduction. Periphony requires speakers to be placed above and below the height of the listeners’ ears.

If you’re familiar with microphone techniques you’ll realize that the W and Y spherical harmonic components are equivalent to the M and S components of the M-S stereo recording technique. Ambisonics is a natural extension of this recording technique to three dimensions.

Technical notes:
This video was created using licensed and legal versions of Adobe Premiere (for editing), SnagIt (for screen capture), and the free sound editing tool Audacity. Audio was recorded using Zoom H1, using a Sennheiser ME-2 lavalier condenser microphone, and video footage was captured on a Nexus 5X.
