Integral Transference is an audio related paradigm designed to master spatial sound articulation and the transference of sound related content. Integral Transference is not an incremental improvement to existing technology, it is a revolutionary step forward, creating a new context for engineering sound events that could help define sound reproduction technology for the next fifty years and beyond.

Mastery over spatial sound has been a compelling problem for the sound engineering community for many years. Integral Transference tackles the problem from a unique perspective, the Macro-Micro Volume. The Metcalf white papers explain how mastery over a sound volume’s macro-micro output analogs can lead to revolutionary advancements in object-oriented sound articulation, volumetric intensification, and control and diagnostic capabilities at a level never before achieved in terms of actively controlling the macro-micro output attributes for ensemble sound events during playback.

The Integral Transference project synergizes an array of engineering templates both old and new. What results is a compound template greater than the sum of its parts. This new context sets the stage for an emerging generation of new and exciting sound-related applications.

Some of the compelling issues addressed by this project


The concept drawings used at this site can sometimes lead to premature opinions that the inventions offered are too elaborate, or too intrusive, or too expensive, etc. This early opinion would be incomplete and inaccurate. The concept drawings are provided to establish a baseline for discussions and for demonstrating Nth degree extrapolations for some of the proposed technologies.

Streamlined commercial applications will emerge in smaller, less intrusive configurations. High-performance generalized products for commercial sale will however be derived from the project's more advanced integral technologies and theories. This important design protocol is a key feature for the Integral Transference engineering template: master the integral domain first. Derivative applications can be defined, managed, and optimized from corresponding relationships with integral state knowledge bases.

This design protocol also assures forward compatibility with more advanced integral applications sure to emerge along this project's newly established innovation curve.
