I am an audio applications engineer and have been tasked with creating a demo for CES 2018 that utilizes (8) of our MAX98357 amplifiers. This is a pretty interesting amplifier because a single TDM bus (3 connections) can deliver 8 discrete channels of audio and each speaker would drive an independent speaker.
My goal is to create an interactive demo where the user can easily enable/disable individual channels of audio at the speaker. The biggest difficulty I have is in getting 8 discrete channels of audio. I’d really like to use a high quality song which is broken into 8 parts. I think a symphony would be a pretty good choice because the audio could be easily be broken down by instrument type (percussion, brass, strings, etc) so the user can easily observe adding/removing different parts of the symphony. That said, it doesn’t have to be a symphony. It could be anything with 8 audio tracts that are fairly active (no long periods of silence) throughout the entire song. If I could obtain 8 mono wav files that comprise a complete song, I have the tools for the remaining steps to generate a single 8-channel audio file in my required format.
I’m willing to purchase a few different songs which are broken into 8 individual 48kHz WAV files. I understand some sort of premium would be required for the additional effort.
Is anyone interested in helping me out with providing 8-channel content for my demo?
Any response would be appreciated; thanks in advance for your time.
