Spatial audio for VR can be quite complex. If it's not approached in the right way it can also seriously reduce the impact of a VR project. However, help is at hand! With a little guidance, you can learn everything you need to know about VR audio using the example of the family car. Using this common everyday object will allow you to analyse commonly understood elements of audio and speak in terms everyone can all understand as a method for digging into an otherwise complex challenge. In this presentation, the speaker will investigate how to maximize the impact of virtual reality audio by understanding which aspects are the most critical and which can be leveraged to increase the impact for your audience.


Attendees will gain insight to analyze common objects and how their sound behavior can be emulated to increase the impact of VR audio. The overall takeaway is the demystification of VR audio into a series of practical elements that can be applied to many different types of VR projects.

Intended Audience

People working on VR and AR projects, both audio and non audio related roles. Producers and designers could also benefit from this presentation.
