David Owens │ Google Play


What is geolocated sound?

A sound (or multiple sounds) contained within shapes on the map, which create geofenced areas. These will trigger content when listeners physically walk inside, by using GPS to determine their location or their proximity using iBeacon technology.

Layer sounds in subtle or rich ways, guide your audience, surprise and entertain — a completely different way to experience our physical environment, a threshold where magic happens ✨.

Spatial audio

Bring your sonic journeys alive with immersive surround sound audio over headphones, no specialist technology required.

Hear sound objects around you, walk up and approach them and they stay still as you move you around.

Listen to incredible 360º audio that sounds like you're really there with  ambisonic recordings.

Start creating with our spatial audio tools now.
