SoundField Surround Zone Plug-in

SoundField Surround Zone Plug-in

It combines the hardware features of both the SP451 Surround Processor and MKV System and is designed to accept B-Format generated by any of the SoundField microphone models. B-Format is the core of SoundField Technology and is based on the principle that all acoustic events are represented by four basic elements. These are ‘X’ which is front/back information (depth); ‘Y’ which is left/right information (width); ‘Z’ which is up/down information (height); and ‘W’, the central point from which the other three elements are referenced.

The most unique advantage or ‘insurance’ that SoundField Technology offers is a second opportunity to change all microphone parameters after the performance has occurred. Once again, the microphone may be repositioned across three dimensions and new polar patterns and stereo angles created. Recording can be made less or more ambient by use of the polar Pattern, Tilt, Zoom and End Fire controls. Previously off-axis sounds can now become on-axis by use of the Rotate control and further space and width obtained with the Angle control. This incredible level of control, both live and in post, affords the mixing engineer the ability to create the ideal ‘sonic’ perspective under the controlled conditions of the production studio – rather than forcing a decision during the original recording session that may later prove to be less than ideal.
