I really like the Aldabella. I really hate the drive to the Aldabella.
How We Got Dysonic
My little lab at AT&T was curious about ambisonic sound for 360 video.
Audio lends so much to the overall video quality and we really wanted to show off how good 360 could feel.
Dr. Manuel Briand (AT&T’s resident audio scientist) was looking at doing some tests with ambisonics.
So we put our peanut butter with his chocolate to see what we would get.
He brought in Dysonics for the audio capture, and I called up Stan Bush.
I needed to create text that looked "military" but wasn't direct jargen, so I created a little script to make words that looked military enough for small buttons and graphics.
These were used throughout the video.
The Aldabella fills up fast. Really fast. There is a small stage area surrounded with couches and a bar behind it.
When you get someone like the Acoustic Saints to play such a small venue you are lucky if there is room to move.
We set up the Dysonic mic (about the shape and size of a rugby ball), our stereo mics,
and the Samsung as inconspicuous as possible.
The poor engineer from Dysonic couldn’t move for the whole night, tucked under a coffee table, surrounded by equipment.
Here is Harry and I at the Aldabella. I’ve got the Samsung Note 5, monitoring the show and camera status via the Samsung 360.
It was a good night, we recorded almost the whole set. Easily over a dozen songs.
