Experience of ambisonic mic’s?

Postby MOF » Tue Feb 19, 2019 5:24 am

Has anyone bought the Rode NT-SF1, the Sennheiser Ambeo VR or Zoom H3-VR mic’s and if so are you getting good results converting from ambisonic to surround and binaural formats?
Any samples of the latter would be appreciated.

Just noticed this when searching for something else so sorry for the delay in response. See the current mag for my review of the Dear Reality DearVR Ambi Micro plugin that converts ambisonic output (from an NT-SF1 in this instance) to binaural. Spoiler: sounds great!

Thank you for the reply, glad you're getting good results from your NT-SF1.

OK, well try this. This recording is from the session with the Bath Waits. It was recorded with the NT-SF1 into Logic via a UAD Apollo 8. The only processing is the Soundfield by Rode plugin to convert the A format output of the mic into B format Ambix and the DearVR Ambi Micro plugin to convert the B format into binaural. It was recorded in our living room which was bedecked with duvets for the occasion.

It goes without saying that you'll get the best results for this if you listen on headphones. The tunes are Jamaica and All In A Garden Green, both from Playford's The Compleat Dancing Master.
