Nova Distribution are proud to announce a new distribution partnership with Polish based manufacturer ZYLIA beginning with the launch of the highly innovative and unique ZM-1 microphone system.

Shipping this month, the ZM-1 is a spherical microphone design comprised of 19 high quality MEMS microphones, offering 360 degree sound capture which can be configured and manipulated in a number of ways through the available ZYLIA Studio software.

Connected by a single USB cable to mac or pc, the software configures the microphone to behave in various ways depending on the desired requirements of the user. The ZYLIA system can auto-detect sound sources from around the microphone which can then be captured into the software and individual tracks separated out for further editing in a digital audio workstation.

This system is designed for several customer types including bands and musical ensembles, podcasters and audio creators working in 3-D Audio, Ambisonics and Virtual Reality disciplines.

Bands can utilise the single ZM-1 microphone to capture rehearsals and jams with the benefit of quick and easy setup, whilst maintaining the ability for separated multi-track mixdown in their DAW. Podcasters are able to quickly detect multiple voices in the studio positioned around the microphone for clear and high-quality capture without messy phase and cross talk issues affecting the overall audio. The most innovative offering of the ZYLIA system is for 3-D sound designers where the 19 capsules recordings can be manipulated into multiple surround sound formats for use within VR and Augmented reality applications using the available ZYLIA software plugins and convertors. 360 degree sound capture can be converted into High Order Ambisonics (HOA) format for use in Facebook 360 and Youtube 360 video platforms. There is also a PRO version of the software available that allows the ZM-1 to feed into a VST/AU plugin directly into a DAW for real-time manipulation of the microphone. Spatial filtering and signal separation allow the 19 capsules in the ZM-1 to be turned into an unlimited number of virtual microphones.

There are two ZYLIA products available to buy, the Basic version and the PRO bundle.

The ZYLIA BASIC includes the ZYLIA ZM-1 microphone along with ZYLIA Studio Software and is priced at

£549 inc VAT

The ZYLIA PRO includes the ZM-1 microphone along with ZYLIA Studio PRO Software + ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter software and is priced at
