We made a Binaural/3D Audio recording app for iPhone – 70 Promo Codes included
We’ve been working on an app for the past year,which gives all iOS users the ability to record binaural /3D Audio, using two devices. If you saw the ASMR Apple ads a few days ago now you can record them too, without any dedicated equipment!
SoundX enhances the 3D Audio effect without relying on pinna (external part of the ear) or a dummy head. We wanted to drop the friction as much as possible, so as of now there are only a few more compared to creating a regular recording.

Why we did it?
* We wanted to make binaural recording a possibility for everyone, without dedicated equipment.
* Binaural recording equipment is expensive and it’s another thing to worry about.
* Binaural audio is incredible for those who rely on hearing more, the content usually cannot be created by those around them or themselves, we wanted to make it more accessible.
* Make earth’s binaural soundscapes more prevalent.
* It’s incredibly exciting for us to extend the functionality of devices users already own.
* We wanted everyone to have a beautiful library of their moments where they can recall them vividly. Binaural audio is known to bring you back to the recording ambient.
* My niece wanted to record ASMR ?.
More than a year ago we built an app to scratch a personal itch, binaural streaming of sorts, to bring the earth’s best soundscapes and stories to everyone. During testing we found that the behind the scenes, us talking and moments of frivolity came back to life, this hit a spot. Binaural audio isn’t just immersive for games,movies, vr,ar, how about our very own lives and the sounds we cherish most? For our first app shipping the gear or traveling to record those soundscapes, we knew well from the beginning that is hard and unlikely to yield a positive roi but we thought we’d absorb the costs. Meanwhile the idea for SoundX emerged, everyone would be able to record those personal moments in binaural audio, as well as record the sounds of the world, we loved it.
It was an incredible challenge and harder than we thought, you have two separate devices, countless environments, countless situations to be accounted for. Enhancing binaural audio, matching and processing separate audio sources, synchronizing and so much more. We had no idea we would be filing patents but there we were with our new patent attorney jotting all this intricate new stuff and approaches.
We dropped the synchronization error rate down to below 5% for some tougher scenarios and within a couple of updates we think we can get it down to below 1%.
We had a talk that SoundX would be built even if it promised zero financial returns. Audio is a personal itch of ours and binaural audio recording will be prevalent in the future, but it isn’t now and we want it to be, this is our step one.
A particular challenge is getting people to realize what we realized, that “oh” moment, these are incredible for personal moments, from there step two is making it as friction-less as possible and you may find yourself taking one or two at key events, here we still have to improve.
*We have a* [*YouTube channel*](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVZJs_1FbBp3mfqjFA3-LTA) *setup with examples and soundscapes. If you heard the original virtual barbershop,* [*here is a “remake” demo.*](https://youtu.be/051-qeg2IxM)
Made this a bit longer as I always enjoy reading some of the details on these myself.
If you do give it a try please let us know for any bugs, “you never know how it’s going to break” applies to all creators and we’re sure that we could have missed something despite of some grueling testing. Questions and feedback, are welcome as i barley scraped on the details.
Like it and want to help? Just keep the pre-roll intro that has the recorded with SoundX on and that should be enough, you can turn it off even as a free user.
The summer still has some days in it which we can now capture better, please share if you record near an amazing place. Should probably start a subreddit to fulfill our first aim of having [earth’s best locations recorded binaurally.](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0tq0g5u2bo-TErZt7SJM6w)
