New 3D Soundscapes – Barton Springs

I’ve got 2 new 3D Soundscapes on the Travelear app this week, “Barton Springs Sunny Day” and “Barton Springs Rainy Day”. The sounds of dogs barking, families playing in the water and people cooling off on a hot day are the essential sounds of summer in Austin, Texas. Listen for free by downloading the Travelear app here.

Stay tuned to our social media for Soundscape Sundays and hear about our latest releases!

Recording a Winter Forest 3D Soundscape

Last February I journeyed to upstate New York in a quest for the solitude of a quiet woodsy soundscape.  It was a long drive, freezing, snowing, and the dead of winter but it was worth it.  It was here in Indian Lake that I captured the sound of a very active and snowy forest.

I also made a video on how I recorded this soundscape, discussing the fundamentals and equipment I used to do it. Click below for the video, then go listen to the finished 3D Soundscape on the Travelear app. Enjoy!

It was the height of the summer, hot as Hades and expensive as heck. Overall we had a great time so let’s talk about what you need to know about this above ground Italian Atlantis!

The Question for the Future of VR: What is 3D Audio?

If someone asked you the question of what Virtual Reality (VR) was, you would probably say “its the thing with the headset and I’ve seen youtube videos of people freaking out while wearing them.” That’s not a bad description. Now, what if someone asked you what 3D Audio was? You probably wouldn’t have an answer. That’s ok, most people I’ve asked don’t know either. Fear not, I’ve got the answer and the explanation.

Here we GO!

Hurray! Our blog is up! Special thanks to our lead programmer Nick for (finally) creating the blog section. Spoiler: my coding/web development skills are not very good so I’m often at the mercy of the more knowledgeable. I know I can always learn but spare time is rare, and who wants to learn web development when they can learn about 3D Audio!
