About Gaël NICOLAS
Hi everyone, some quick words just to tell you who i am and why i'm involved in surround sound.
My name is Gaël NICOLAS (like the big tittle on the top of my best
portrait), I'm not so young neither too old. For those who are wondering,
i'm living in Paris (France).
I'm mostly working in the film industy, and for many years now i've been concerned with 5.1 sounds.
Some says that 5.1 is only a matter of a delivering format. This was not my
way of thinking! In 2004 I decided to grab my own surround sounds. After a
while, ambisonic was the best choice i could do.
First of all it's a saving time format, 1 sound feeds 5 speakers. Then no phase problem between each output, so ambisonic is "Dolby SR" friendly.
As the visual 3D, ambisonic is the most true immersive result, considering that the recordings get the whole dimension and sounds are ready for the next 12.1 (no speakers limitation).
Sounds can be dynamicaly rotated, zoomed in real time, best friends for sound editing, all can be easily done in post.
For all those reasons and a lot of others, i decided to do a big part of my recordings in "B-Format" ambisonic.
Thanks to Surround Library, the experience is ready for everyone.
