“The factories are standing, there are only guitarists in the country,” said one famous St. Petersburg singer and musician. He, of course, exaggerated and joked, but the number of musical groups since the time when computers entered everyday life has grown exponentially - this is a fact. Anyone can make music anywhere: you need a PC or laptop, a sound card, a pair of hands and a desire to understand the issue.
Sooner or later, a young sound engineer will need to update the equipment - without it, it will not be possible to reach a new sound level. ZYLIA is a microphone that is useful not only for novice musicians, but also for professionals who are used to working with live sound. It allows you to simultaneously and channelly record several instruments at once: we put it in the center of the room, connect it to a laptop and specify the number and type of instruments in a special program. It is only important to place the sound sources in different directions - so the device can clearly distinguish it. What kind of instrument is playing, ZYLIAit doesn't matter: it can be even a voice, even a guitar, or even a musical triangle - 19 highly sensitive microphones are built into the development of the Polish team at once, so that they cope with a signal of any nature. ZYLIA's design allows for 360-degree audio recording, which is useful if you're developing a VR app or shooting panoramic video.
You can mix the recorded mix in the same program: raise or lower the volume of a certain instrument, spread sounds across channels. You can even highlight one specific instrument and mute the rest - useful if you want to listen to who and how they played their part in rehearsals.
The recording can be immediately "unloaded" in.wav format to continue the full mixing in the familiar program. Still, ZYLIA will not be able to replace expensive studio equipment - not that level - but as a basis for a home studio, for creating demos and recordings of live acoustic sound, it may be better suited than many models of well-known brands. If you are interested in the project, you should hurry up - there is a week left until the end of the campaign on Indiegogo.
Cost - $ 399 for a starter kit. ZYLIA customers will ship in the first quarter of next year.>
