If you're on a shoestring-budget, the Mitra 3D Mic Indie can give your indie film short the high-quality audio it deserves - without breaking your fragile, artistic bank. This innovative mic uses 3D binaural sound recording to recreate the immersive audio we hear when listening to multi-channel surround sound, but audio recorded with the 3D Mic Indie requires only a pair of closely placed speakers, headphones or even ear-buds to experience 360° audio.
The 3D Mic Indie works by using an audio signal modifier system called SHEM. SHEM developers undoubtedly looked at how the military and defense department had experimented with recreating our brains psychoacoustics (how we hear sounds around us). The Mitra 3D Mic Indie owes its ability to recreate the human hearing experience to the algorithms that successfully duplicated the psychoacoustics related to depth and passing sound. The 3D Mic Indie uses SHEM, which puts those algorithms to the test.
The result is a binaural mic that records what appears to sound like full surround sound audio. It basically simulates human hearing by capturing the psychoacoustics and recording it. Plus, this model is designed to attach to your video camera, DSLR camera or digital audio recorder. Since the 3D Mic Indie offers only 3.5 mm phono line connectivity, it's more affordable than its big brother the 3D Mic Pro and is absolutely perfect for anyone looking to add immersive 3D audio to their digital video recordings.
When you listen back to the recorded sound through two closely spaced side by side speakers, headphones or even ear-buds - the listener's brain processes the psychoacoustic information in the recorded sounds and hears the realistic 3D sound as if it was them sitting on the beach listening to the waves break from left to right along the shore. Turn in your shotgun mic for the world of full immersive 360° soundscape recording. The 3D Mic Indie is the aural equivalent of the 360° panoramic lens.
