Ircam Amplify – A2IM Member Spotlight

Ircam Amplify, a cutting-edge branch of IRCAM, France’s foremost audio research institute, aims to make immersive audio a reality for all creators without compromising quality. Ircam Amplify announces the launch of its groundbreaking Beta program, providing digital music companies with a unique opportunity to leverage spatial audio technology.

“Many digital music companies and distributors are eager to deliver spatial audio tracks to streaming services, but the complexity of the technology often discourages artists from making the switch,” explains Nathalie Birocheau, CEO of Ircam Amplify. “Our goal is to help digital music companies and distributors break down barriers and make spatial audio accessible to all artists. We believe that innovation should benefit the entire creative community.”

Ircam Amplify’s Beta Program offers:
• An AI-powered, artifact-free spatial audio engine built on over 30 years of expertise from IRCAM labs, rigorously tested with numerous artists and producers for a full year.
• A user-friendly interface that enables artists and producers to fine-tune the spatialization process with ease.
• Comprehensive support for a wide range of formats within the spatial audio market.
• Convenient online access through a simple API.

Birocheau encourages digital music companies, distributors, labels, producers, and artists to participate in the Beta program, which will run from 12th of May until September 2023: “Join the revolution and experience the future of music with Ircam Amplify’s transformative solution—absolutely free!”
