Jim Rondinelli and JJ Johnston from Immersion Networks stop by the podcast to give LP a lesson in immersive audio. They take a step back and talk through sound file innovation over the years (JJ was one of the folks involved with inventing the MP3.)

Immersion Networks is a company that creates software and hardware to improve the human listening experience. Founded in 2014 by industry-leading audio experts and engineers, the privately held company operates out of a purpose-built facility in Redmond, Washington.

The company’s founders are responsible for hundreds of patents that have been instrumental in the evolution of audio technology. If you listen to music on a modern device, you are using technology created by one of our founders.

Their mission is simple: to reframe the human listening experience.

One of their key products is mix³ (pronounced “mixcubed”), the first 3D audio mixing platform available to everyone — podcasters, content creators, producers, artists, and engineers — that lets them transform sound files into lush, intimate, headphone-ready mixes. These mixes can be appreciated without special hardware and distributed through streaming services or shared as a regular stereo file.
