How do you make 8D Music? First lets find out what 8D audio is.
What is 8D Audio? 8D audio is all about getting way deep into the music. It uses the power of left and right speakers through your headphones (though, it’s not exactly panning the audio.) similarly, giving you the feeling that you’re right there at the live show. Below is a featured 8D track i made, also put on some headphones and hear the difference:
How Do i actually make 8D Audio music?
It’s not as simple as panning left and right. It’s the illusion of audio coming from above and below you and varying distances. “But i can hear the effect on my regular headphones. How is this possible?” It’s all done through software, my friend.
Start by opening your DAW and loading up the aforementioned plugin as well as some reverb. Then drag in an audio sample and mess with the elevation. Elevation also determines if a sound is below or above you.
Adjust the wheel on the right to change the direction the sound is coming from. Then play with the Widen knob on the bottom right and adjust to taste.
