Envelop is a non-profit organization that amplifies the unifying social and emotional power of music through immersive listening spaces and open source spatial audio software.
Three-dimensional experiences of sound and music bring people together, catalyzing shared moments of inspiration, empathy and wonder.
Envelop spaces allow us to physically be inside the music.
32 speakers surround the audience creating a sphere of spatial sound.
Envelop has created two large-scale listening environments:
Envelop SF a permanent venue within The Midway in San Francisco.
Envelop Satellite a mobile system that is available for festivals and site-specific events.
Envelop for Live is a collection of free, open-source spatial audio production tools that work with Ableton Live Suite 10.
Three-dimensional sound placement enables artists to create immersive mixes for multichannel spaces and VR/AR environments using normal headphones.
Artists and producers can create their own DIY setups for studio production of shows with 4, 6 or 8 speakers easier than ever before.
All of our tools are free and open-source, allowing this technology to reach new audiences easier, therefore catalyzing more spatial content creation.
Envelop produces a variety of events that activate the experience intimate shared listening.
