Audio-Technica BP3600 becomes SPAT-compatible

Audio-Technica’s BP3600 immersive audio microphone is now supported in the recently released version of Flux::Immersive’s SPAT Revolution software (version 23.08). 

The microphone has eight compact capsule assemblies with high-frequency characteristics integrated into the body while remaining compact and lightweight enough for single-operator usability and easy setup.

The BP3600’s eight microphone modules extend from the body to form a cube with 15cm (5.9 inches) between each microphone assembly. Each microphone assembly in the eight-channel near-coincident array is equipped with a 12mm hypercardioid capsule.

SPAT Revolution is an immersive audio mix engine, in which incoming source objects can be positioned in space using an intuitive graphical interface.

SPAT Revolution is the result of a partnership between FLUX:: Immersive and the French research institute Ircam, created to bring the vast research in acoustics and music performed at Ircam available to the market.

Audio-Technica’s David Walters commented: “FLUX’s SPAT Revolution stands as the first-choice tool for immersive production among professionals and creatives. It serves as the perfect bridge for integrating our BP3600 microphone seamlessly into highly complex immersive audio setups. So I am very excited for the full-fledged support of the BP3600 within SPAT Revolution – users can now readily experience the benefits of its advanced features and enhance their immersive audio production endeavours with these two great tools.”

FLUX:: Immersive’s Hugo Larin concluded: “We are excited to support the new three-dimensional Audio-Technica BP3600 channel base microphone, making it incredibly easy to capture and create an immersive soundscape in SPAT Revolution. This is a powerful addition to the rapidly growing world of immersive audio productions, giving sound designers and other creatives in this field new ways to capture the action.”
