Capture an atmosphere accurately with Audio-Technica’s BP3600 Immersive Audio Microphone. Take all of the guesswork of creating the ideal immersive mix and capture a precise cubic image of any live-action scenario. Using eight 3.5” long hypercardioid microphones arranged equidistant from the spherical center mount, the BP3600 encapsulates a 360-degree audio image, producing a raw eight channel performance that makes the listener feel like they’re there.

This practical, state-of-the-art recording solution allows users to establish a genuinely immersive audio image that can easily be integrated into immersive audio codecs (like MPEG-H 3D Audio) without needing extra processing.

Benefits For Immersive

Hearing Is Believing

Westlake Pro was given the incredible opportunity to put the BP3600 to the test, so we teamed up with Geordy Sincavage of Sinc Sound (Lost, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Atlanta, and more) and Gerald C. Rivers (Actor, Master Drummer, Voice Over Artist, Inspirational Speaker & Teacher) to capture a few different use cases with the BP3600. The results are astounding. Put on a nice pair of headphones and give these sessions a listen.

Geordy from Sinc Sound

Westlake Pro client and Foley Audio Engineer Geordy Sincavage of Sinc Sound in California spends his days supervising, mixing, and editing foley tracks for some of television’s largest shows and movies, including Lost, Westworld, Atlanta, and The Revenant. In his free time, Geordy treks through nature, recording the sounds around him to capture the tranquility of some of his favorite spots. Equipped with the BP3600, Geordy headed out into nature to see what he could capture. Watch and listen to the results below:

Gerald C. Rivers

We invited Gerald C. Rivers and his drum circle to Seahorse Sound Studios to sit around the BP3600. With seven drummers, one drum kit, and thirteen floor drums (djun djun, congas, bongos), this drum circle filled the room with hypnotic rhythms that filled you to your core. We found the eight microphones captured a crystal clear performance and brought the feeling of being in the studio with the drummers to you. Watch the video below and experience the energy of the session, captured with the BP3600.
