Why is stereo immersive sound relevant today?

Streaming is here and will soon become the main distribution path for audio-visual product. Now audiences can enjoy premium content on demand anytime, anywhere.

With this is the nearly exclusive reliance on headphones and small speakers for the hand-held devices, Problem is the movie, video, radio, or game doesn’t sound anywhere near as good as it does in the cinema or home theatre and audio setup.

So even though the screens have shrunk, Timber delivers the same surround sound audiences are treated to in the cinemas and home theatre setups—and they can enjoy this without a decoder.  

Why Timber 3D?

Timber is the perfect solution to match the cinema surround sound in all stereo devices without changing your current stereo mix work pipeline. The Timber 3D engine is used by mixing and mastering professionals to produce spatial, immersive audio that goes beyond surround sound and creates the immersive experience through stereo outputs—either by headphones or speakers.

Why Timber is unique?

Our sound quality is outstanding: we’ve solved all the problems related to the use of HRTF, and coupled with our long experience in the reverberation field, the cinematic audio we deliver is unparalleled.
Approximately 90% of our competitor’s 3D solution depends on measured HRTFs, whereas Timber depends instead not just on HRTFs, but also on modular physical modeling of sound propagation.
Then, what is most unique about Timber is that provides immersive audio in stereo—this due to the sound not being coloured. 

User interface.

The Timber UI has been designed by sound professionals for sound professionals. We like things that are simple to use and effective. By using the intuitive, graphic User Interface to visualise the sound sphere, producers can place and move sounds in all directions in the spherical area with pin-point accuracy.

Applications.

Movies
Every producer is using Timber in their own way. Some use the engine to maintain the surround feeling when they do the surround downmix to stereo, and apply Timber's processing in only the most relevant action parts or scenes that require heavy sound location—again, the perfect tool to deliver in hand-held devices the original cinema surround so painstakingly engineered in the first place
