Ambisonics is a technology that creates a spherical sound field. Unlike traditional immersive sound formats, it is not channel-based, using an encoded bundle of multiple audio streams to place sounds anywhere within the sound sphere. The precision of positioning depends on the number of streams, described as first, second or third order.
Nuendo supports Ambisonics up to the third order and not only for mixing — Nuendo can record directly from an Ambisonics-capable microphone system, allowing you to capture live performances and positioning sounds in the spherical field with the utmost precision. You can also import pre-produced Ambisonics sound mixes as Wave files and use the internal VST Ambisonics Panner to create an Ambisonics mix from mono, stereo or surround sources.
