In Brief

Zylia is designed to bring the high quality experience of recording in a music studio to everyone

Wanting to provide a more accessible way for bands to record their music outside of a studio, a team of developers created Zylia, a 360-degree mobile microphone designed to capture multiple instruments. Zylia was created by a Polish company of the same name.

Zylia looks like a foam ball covered in small black patches that contain the 19 microphones. When a group wants to record together they sync Zylia to their computer with the appropriate recording program installed and each person plays their instrument for eight seconds. This registers each of the instruments to the program that then get saved to an individual sound file. Following the recording session, the editor can go in and locate the specific sound they want to edit rather than modifying the overall sound.

The developers behind Zylia plan to launch an Indiegogo campaign on September 14.
