Home Sound Effects Insectus



Do you want to add a bit of mystery, depth, tension to your ambience stem and influence the emotional state of the listener?

Insectus is a special Ambisonics sfx library: we’ve been through lot of experimentation in that time with different approaches regarding the best way to deliver this bizarre package of sounds.

So what is it exactly? Just think about the sound-designed material as a background sweetener. We’ve called it Insectus not only for its Latin roots, but also because it comes from the fusion of two word: Insect+Tinnitus.

We used the higher octave of the spectrum in an odd way, mimicking insect vocalization and biophony sounds in Symbolic Sound Kyma by layering a lot of synthesised stream of small band of very high frequencies (hence the inspireful source name Tinnitus).

Now you can create soundscape by layering, rotating, expanding and shrinking the FuMa/ambiX file. You can also re-construct the 360° sound panorama from binaural up to 7.1 surround.

You’ll find 100 loopable variations of FOA FuMa/ambiX interleaved files (4 channels), with a duration of 30 seconds each.

Insectus is available in two versions:

B-format ambiX: $ 69
(stereo and binaural versions are included as wel)
Audio Format: Interleaved Broadcast Wave Files (.wav)

The FuMa channel ordering is different from the ambiX (WXYZ with W -3dB compared to WYZX ambiX standard). You can easily convert FuMa to ambiX and viceversa with Ambi Converter, a free utility by Noise Makers.
Stereo versions are decoded to 180° stereo; binaural versions are created using Noise Makers Ambi Head with the Neumann KU 100 HRTF.
You can transform these B-format files into your preferred standard (up to 7.1.4 surround) by using the free SoundField by RØDE plugin.
