Finally I can show you something. But let's take the topic step-by-step. First: what the hell is a 3D/Binaural recording? Binaural recordings are reproductions of sound the way human ears hear it. Traditionally, recordings have been made using mono or stereo. Mono uses a single microphone while stereo uses two, spaced apart from each other. Binaural recording takes the stereo method one step further by placing two microphones approximately at the same average distance that exists between one and the other human ear. To recreate the best effect you must put the microphones in your ears or by using a "dummy head" (wherein a mannequin head is outfitted with a microphone in each ear) because having a real head or a head shape that separates the two microphones is what makes the magic works. In fact if a car passes on your left side the sound will take a few extra microseconds to reach the right ear and it will also be louder in one ear (left) than the other. This is caused by the fact we have a thick skull and spongy brain between the two ears and sound waves interact with the physical constitution of the listener and the surrounding space. Second: why did you do it? I was enchanted by this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHzl1xizwe0 Third: Quality of your video isn't so good but the one up here ??? is 10 times better. Why? There are many different 3D microphones ranging from 50? to 10,000? and for sure the one in that video is quite an expensive one. I'm using a Soundman OKM II Studio A3 microphone which is one of the cheapest out there but hearing a few recordings it seemed to me the best one plus it has a peak of 140 dB limit. Two other factors that made the recording imperfect are the circuit, because of its geographical location full of ups and downs you hear the cars all around the track creating a nonstop noise effect, and the my Canon G30 (where the microphone was connected) that can't handle correctly the microphone. Last: What are my future plans with this recording technique? Well I'd like to make some videos like this one where I'm out recording and walking around Monza or during the various events so you can see how I move in these situations and you can feel the sights and sounds. To make this possible I'll leave my Go Pro recording and placed on my head with the 3D microphone in my ears connected to a Zoom H1 portable recorded (because I found the audio quality increases a lot with this external recorder). At the same time I'll make some stops to film with my Canon camcorder to make you understand a bit the difference between stereo and audio binaural. Let me know in the comments section below what you think!! If anyone has experience in the field, advice are more than welcome.
