  • November 14, 2019: Facebook Reality Labs released two photos of their 6-degrees-of-freedom research dome. It is instrumented with 420 Core Sound TetraMics.

    Each TetraMic first-order ambisonic microphone is individually calibrated for the highest precision sound source location cues.

    (OctoMic offers even higher precision location cues!)

  • April 25, 2017: TetraMic was used by JJ Wiesler (Pollen Music Group) on Google's Oscar-nominated short animation "Pearl".

It was also used to capture impulse resonses to capture the acoustic responses of recording venues.
