About Martin Rieger

My name is Martin Rieger, I’ve been a recording studio owner for over 10 years and work full time as a 3D audio expert.

It started over half a decade ago and the first time I wore VR glasses. I thought I could see the future – but I couldn’t hear it yet. Shouldn’t the sound also be three-dimensional if the image is?

I was so fascinated by the new possibilities that I canceled all classic audio productions and haven’t done anything that would have worked in stereo since then. Nevertheless, almost everyone only talks about Dolby Atmos and completely overlooks the fact that there are immersive media that have much more potential and also pay better.

I have now structured this concentrated knowledge, packed it into my 3D audio matrix and refined it into a video course that is already being used in state schools.

How do you get started as a recording studio operator today?

My unique 3D audio matrix in degrees of freedom (DoF: Degrees of Freedom)

Step 1: 0 DoF

We look at the history and future of classic media such as music, film and podcasts.

This allows you to evaluate which topics you can adapt directly with a low barrier to entry.

Step 2: 3 DoF

We will work together on three crucial degrees of freedom: 360 videos, headtracking and ambisonics.

These areas are crucial to understanding and mastering the full potential of immersive audio.

Step 3: 6 DoF

We place a special emphasis on the integration of game audio aspects, king-discipling of immersive audio.

Through our guidance you will develop a basic understanding and take your mixing skills into the third dimension.

Case studies from our customers

Here are a few examples of what customers have told us about working with us:

Our challenge was that we needed more knowledge about 3D sound, especially for music.

Martin Rieger's 1-on-1 coaching showed all the possibilities that immersive sound offers, how it is used today and how it can evolve.

As immersive sound is quite new on the Norwegian market, it was great to get an international perspective on the format.
