Investigating the Potential of Omnidirectional Mic Arrays in the Reproduction of Surround Sound

Document Thumbnail

The paper outlines a facet of ongoing research into the development of acquisition techniques for surround sound location recording. Specifically, the research for this presentation entailed experimentation with omnidirectional microphones in various array configurations (A/B/C/+) in order to discover field recording methods that may produce solid, authentic surround sound imaging through a standard 5.1 loudspeaker/monitor arrangement. Examples of recordings and the preliminary results of blind listening tests are described.:
