Quite so. And particularly useful when you want to arrange the the performers in a circle and still be able to adjust the balance and stereo fold-down, at least to some extent.

I only raised the point because I didn't want casual readers to run away with the idea that the SoundField software's ability to generate individual virtual mic outputs with controllable polar-patterns (and stereo panning) was in any way equivalent to using real, physical individual close mics. They remain different things with different attributes.

Nevertheless, I'm glad you've become a SoundField convert. It is an ingenious concept, much overlooked and underrated in the past, and has many creative possibilities when used intelligently, as you have in your example above.

Yes I saw that video. You'll gather from my posts above that I think quite highly of it too.
