3D audio software developer Sound Particles has translated its successful eBook entitled “All You Need To Know About 3D Audio” to Chinese and Japanese, with the goal of helping even more professionals around the world to transition into the immersive audio field.

With this eBook, which has been downloaded almost 10,000 times, sound enthusiasts are able to find all the answers they’re looking for in a detailed, complete and easy to read guide – and now in two more languages.

Immersive Audio is the next big thing in audio and this eBook summarizes the most relevant information on this topic, covering channel-based audio, object-based audio, Ambisonics, and binaural.

With the warm welcome this eBook has received since 2020 from Sound Particles’ English-speaking audience, it was the natural step to try to reach more audiences who can benefit from learning the basics about Immersive Sound, from new concepts and the evolution of audio formats, to understanding the foundations of surround or immersive sound that professionals may not understand at first, including all the complicated buzzwords such as 7.1.2, 22.2, objects, beds, B-format, AmbiX, ACN, SN3D, HRTF, HRIR.

“After the success of the original eBook, we wanted to start translating it to other languages besides English and helping more countries to embrace immersive sound” says Nuno Fonseca, CEO of Sound Particles.

The various versions of the eBook can now be downloaded for free in Chinese, Japanese, and English.
