Several formats with height channels have been proposed, such as NHK's 22.2 channel system and the Auro 3D system, which are included in ITU-R BS.2159 standardized in 2012. Recording techniques for these 3D audio formats often include omnidirectional or cardioid microphones settings at certain distances (so-called spaced distribution array). Since these methods require much work for the setting, many methods have been proposed that expand the conventional stereo one-point microphones settings such as ORTF-3D, OCT-3D, Triple M/S Array. Recently Ambisonics is also the focus of the industry attention. In this workshop we compare the differences in impression due to the differences in settings of recording technique of these 3D audio techniques through actual recording examples and discusses how we can accomplish both convenience and aesthetics.
