Spatial audio technology has been a game-changer in the world of audio production, allowing for a more immersive and realistic listening experience. However, getting into spatial audio production has often been seen as difficult and requiring a lot of technical know-how. That is until now, with the introduction of the Nomono Sound Capsule.

Spatial audio made easy

The Nomono Sound Capsule, developed by the company Nomono based in Trondheim, Norway, is a spatial audio production kit that aims to make spatial audio production easy and accessible to anyone, regardless of their level of expertise. The kit consists of a space recorder, which serves as the interface between the user and the sound capsule, and four lav mics that are magnetic and can be easily clipped on or attached using an alligator clip.

What sets the Nomono Sound Capsule apart is its ability to record both the environment in 3D using ambisonics technology and the dialogue using spot mics on the individuals. The space recorder also tracks the positioning data of the microphones, allowing for a more accurate spatial audio experience. Once the recording is done, all the information is sent to the cloud for processing, which includes denoising, crosstalk reduction, EQ matching, adaptive leveling, compression, and loudness normalization.

One of the key features of the Nomono Sound Capsule is its ability to create a binaural stereo file that places the vocals in the world, making it sound as if the listener's head is positioned where the microphone was during the recording. This creates a truly immersive and realistic listening experience that is broadcast-ready and of professional quality.

Additionally, the Nomono Sound Capsule is designed to be future-proof, with the potential for updates and new features to be added over time. This makes it a versatile tool that can be used for various purposes, such as conference microphone setups where a virtual shotgun microphone automatically points to the person speaking.

One of the most important features of the Nomono Sound Capsule is its impressive battery life. The base unit has a large battery that can record for three full days without needing a recharge. This makes it ideal for on-the-go podcasters who need to record in various locations without worrying about running out of power. The device also has internal memory in the microphones, allowing for seamless recording even when out of range for up to 45 minutes.

The microphones are finely tuned, allowing for clear audio even in extreme conditions. The Nomono Sound Capsule has been tested in noisy environments like next to a waterfall, proving its ability to capture high-quality audio in challenging settings.

Overall, the Nomono Sound Capsule is a game-changer in the world of audio recording technology. Its advanced features, user-friendly design, and professional quality make it a must-have tool for podcasters looking to create immersive and realistic spatial audio content. The device is not only practical but also fun to use, as demonstrated by users who have taken it on road trips and outdoor adventures to test its capabilities.

Conclusion: A professional recording device for spatial audio

The Nomono Sound Capsule features innovative technology that allows for immersive audio recording. The device offers clean dialogue tracks and spatial ambience blending options, allowing for a truly immersive listening experience. Priced at $2,490, the Nomono Sound Capsule is already available on Amazon and the Nomono homepage.

In conclusion, the Nomono Sound Capsule has revolutionized spatial audio production by making it easy, accessible, and of professional quality. With its user-friendly interface, advanced processing capabilities, and versatility, the Nomono Sound Capsule is a must-have tool for anyone looking to create immersive and realistic spatial audio content.
