Standard Spatial Audio

Standard spatial audio is designed for games - not the real world.

Points of sound and beds give the sensation of sound around you - but it just doesn’t feel real AND your audience will need some expensive niche hardware just to listen to it.

Roundhead Spatial Audio

Magicbeans’ revolutionary audio engine ‘Roundhead’ allows full volumetric audio to be experienced at home on everyday devices, and in large-scale multi-user location-based experiences. You can fill a room with music and even superimpose sounds onto real physical objects. It is next generation audio - available to your audience today.
