Mind-Bending Spatial Audio: Bringing sound to life, and life to sound


At Scaeva, we carefully craft revolutionary audio experiences for our partner’s users


Our initial product, InSitu SoundTM sold over 10K units, establishing product-market fit and garnering critical and user acclaim.


Our mission is to make high-quality audio content creation possible from anywhere - not just the studio. Scaeva’s tech platform empowers audio content creators - from music makers to podcasters to market world-class content from anywhere.

  

*LiveSpaceTM  NFTs Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.


With our technology, creators can hear how their content sounds on end devices in a variety of places virtually - everything from a nightclub and car to a professional recording studio. 


For CEO and co-founder Steve Curd, Scaeva is the perfect merger of his two lifelong passions: music and science. With his extensive background in physics and engineering, Steve’s goal is to improve the way we create and enjoy one of the most influential art forms. 



Born in California, Scaeva sits at the nexus of technology and entertainment.

With a motley group of engineers, scientists, and artists, Scaeva develops powerful technologies at the core of professional audio tools.


The Problem


A majority of content creators will never have access to a professional studio

And this limits their ability to create quality content. Most audio experiences today are not spatial, and lack a sense of “place”.


sourcesource


Not only can many not access studios at all, but with our technology, we can recreate the sound of any real-world space - a car, nightclub, artist’s home studio, and more.


*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.

The Solution


Your audio in → spatial audio out

Our technology isn’t just better, it’s different. We convert traditional stereo sound into audio built for your senses. It’s a massive leap forward in mobile audio immersion.


That’s because unlike 360, 3D, or binaural audio, our technology doesn’t require specially recorded tracks to give listeners an immersive experience. Our technology unlocks the acoustical context behind a track - meaning you experience the full depth of the audio experience the artist intended.



Bottom line: Scaeva enables us to experience sound that’s as vibrant and nuanced as a live performance. With unparalleled clarity, you can transform your entire existing audio catalog to hear what you’ve been missing.


With InSitu Sound™ technology, Scaeva transforms traditional sound into pro-grade spatial audio for immersive virtual experiences.

 

*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.



We have a business model similar to others in our industry, however what makes us unique is our technology doesn’t rely on adoption of a new file format, meaning anyone can use it with any audio. Scaeva provides software solutions that are sold B2B so that the makers of audio products can offer an elevated audio experience. We sell this patented B2B technology and are now entering the NFT/metaverse market. 


The Market


Opportunity: own music history with NFTs


The NFT market exceeded $10 Billion in transaction volume in the third quarter of 2021 (source).  


Not to mention…


  • The 3D audio market is expected to grow to $15 Billion by 2028 (a CAGR of 15.1% from 2021 to 2028) (source).
  • More than 50 million people globally consider themselves content creators, and the market size has grown to over $104 billion.
  • Revenues from digital production tools will double, hitting approximately $2 Billion by 2027 (source).
  • Spatial audio will be valued at $15 billion by 2028.
  • When it comes to the estimated $930 Billion virtual experience market (audio streaming, content creation, metaverse) immersive audio plays a growing and significant role in these experiences (sourcesourcesource).

(source, source, source)


These markets tell us we are in a massive shift from creators being full-time pros and enthusiasts to where audio creation (music, podcasts, etc) is mainstream. Here’s a look at Scaeva’s revenue opportunities within these markets: 



Scaeva minted one of the world’s first spatial audio NFTs. Because of this, we are uniquely positioned to model iconic venues and studios around the world. In addition to creating valuable assets, we are also preserving these legendary places.


This opportunity allows the unique chance to own and preserve music history via iconic clubs, studios, and sound profiles of famous venues. It also leverages the existing 360-degree acoustic modeling system developed with Grammy-winning audio engineers.



We believe no one else is taking our technical approach in our industry, and thus, are able to achieve the levels of precision that we are.

**3 Days left** $5 trillion by 2030, the metaverse is “too big for investors to ignore" How does Scaeva fit in?

10 days ago

When we think of the "metaverse" we often think of immersive graphics, but without great spatial audio these experiences will continue to fall short. Our LiveSpace technology gives immersive experiences a real-world feeling because we use acoustics from the real-world, not artificial computer models.

We enjoyed this report by McKinsey because it captures the massive immersive content revolution happening right under our feet now and gives us a peek into what the future could hold. How does Scaeva fit into all this? Just remember - wherever there are immersive graphics, immersive audio is needed too.


"By 2030, it is entirely plausible that more than 50 percent of live events could be held in the metaverse." says McKinsey.

New CTA Report: “Americans understand benefits of immersive experiences”

13 days ago

In the past two years, Americans were more focused on home entertainment than ever in U.S. history. The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) expects that to continue, as Americans now understand the benefit of immersive experiences at home. 

As device makers are continuing to fight for market share in highly competitive markets, they are looking for ways to differentiate themselves. Spatial audio is a critical component to these differentiation strategies, finds the CTA:

“The home audio space continues to find new ways to innovate with the incorporation of digital assistants, spatial audio and streaming app compatibilities within devices in order to entice first-time and repeat purchasers alike.”  Visit CTA.tech/research  for the full report. 

The conclusion is clear - immersive audio is here to stay and Scaeva is the ideal spatial audio tech provider.   To learn more and invest or add to your investment before it's too late, click here.

‘All Good Things’ guitarist and platinum producer Andrew Bojanic on Scaeva Tech: “I wish I had this years ago”

26 days ago

As one of the earliest users of Scaeva's spatial reproduction technology, Producer and multi-platinum artist Andrew Bojanic (All Good Things, Wizardz of Oz) quickly recognized the platform's potential to free independent artists to produce from anywhere. Scaeva democratized the business of music production by creating robust virtual tools for artists to professionally mix and master music without being tethered to the studio.

Although Bojanic owns a well-equipped professional recording studio, he is often surrounded by distractions - kids, travel, touring. "Being able to grab my laptop and headphones and get to work no matter where I am is huge. I even found myself checking tracks on the beach in Hawaii." Bojanic continues, "[Scaeva's] platform is a paradigm shift for professionals and for millions of up-and-coming artists that can't feasibly create without renting a pro studio or spending thousands of dollars on gear. I wish I'd had this years ago".

Brian Hardgroove (Public Enemy) Uses Scaeva Tech in Honoring Les Paul

about 1 month ago


We sat down with respected artist Brian Hardgroove (Public Enemy, Ghost in the Hall, Bootsy Collins) to learn how he's using Scaeva-powered tools in surprising ways to honor the work of music legend Les Paul.

"My first reaction to Scaeva's Technology was, oh man, I can use this for more than just mixing. I thought, wow, I can actually shape sounds while I'm recording and hear these sounds in different environments. I could never have done that without this system"

Hardgroove has recently joined the Advisory Council of the Les Paul Foundation where he has had the privilege of reviewing hundreds of Les Paul & Mary Ford tracks which may result in future projects. Les Paul, known for inventing multi-track recording, the solid body electric guitar, over-dubbing, echo and numerous other recording techniques was a prolific musician, engineer and inventor. Often called the "Father of Modern Music," Hardgroove couldn't help but recognize the innovation of Scaeva's Technology and how it would have been of interest to Les Paul if he were alive today.

By using Scaeva’s technology in his workflow, Hardgroove mixes and masters from a variety of professional spaces virtually. He also hears how his tracks translate to devices and listening environments such as a nightclub or car while sitting in his home studio, or really from anywhere. He can count on the fidelity of his mix, hearing the track exactly as it was intended for his audience.


Rolling Stones’ engineer and Scaeva advisor Krish Sharma on why spatial audio matters

about 2 months ago


No one understands just how important the spatial audio experience is than long-time audio pro and Scaeva advisor, Krish Sharma. Spatial audio is critical to immersive experiences and has a direct emotional impact, “it’s why you feel more comfortable in a restaurant with muted surfaces” versus a big “lively” conference room designed to give visitors energy. 

Many companies today understand the importance of spatial audio in their products but don’t have the knowledge or resources to build it themselves. Scaeva’s LiveSpace technologies gives companies the sound technology they need to be competitive without requiring content to be in a new format. It works with any legacy audio, no remastering or remixing is required to ‘spatialize’ the experience.

Krish also remarked, “I’ve been recording, mixing, and mastering for some of the biggest names in music, in the most iconic studios on the planet my entire career. I never would have guessed that I could achieve the same professional acoustic quality outside the studio…”

Scaeva signs iconic studio behind Fleetwood Mac, Metallica, Santana and more!

3 months ago



Scaeva is excited to announce a partnership with one of the most iconic recording studios on the planet - the studio formerly known as the Record Plant. Scaeva will capture, preserve and make available the unique acoustic signatures of the famous recording studio located at 2200 Bridgeway in Sausalito, California, where the list of iconic acts to record is staggering.

This historic studio produced some of music’s most iconic platinum records of all time, including Santana’s Supernatural and Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours.  Other artists including Metallica, Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, Tom Petty, Carrie Underwood, Rick James, The Grateful Dead, Joe Walsh, Three Dog Night and Stevie Wonder created some of their biggest hits using the studio’s iconic sound.

The studio will again be making history by working with Scaeva to create high-precision models of their most iconic spaces, including their celebrated Studio B.”Scaeva’s unbelievable spatial audio reproduction technology is a perfect match to our commitment to bring this piece of music history back to life for future generations. Scaeva shares our passion, we couldn’t be more excited to get started.” shared Frank Pollifrone, investor.  "We're thrilled to be preserving this historical gem digitally and making it available for wider audiences to experience," announced Steve Curd, Scaeva CEO. 

Scaeva expects these models to be available later this year as one of the first-ever spatial acoustic NFTs, as well as embedded in other professional and consumer-focused spatial audio products for music production, streaming and metaverse applications
