A Modular Microphone Array for Surround Sound Recording

Document Thumbnail

The paper describes a multiple microphone array method and mounting system of a modular design. The Modular Microphone Array facilitates accurate and repeatable transducer configurations suited to a variety of studio and field recording situations and standards, including surround sound recording. The design supports a wide variety of transducer types (microphones) and is independent of any specific manufacturer's model or type. The novel overall shape, with attendant capability to be modified, is a further attribute. The light weight of this design ensures portability and ease of deployment in diverse field recording situations: musical performance recording, film and video production, broadcast, sound effects recording, ambient soundscape recording, and other professional audio applications.
