Here’s a great value for money package of the Sennheiser Ambeo VR microphone with a Rycote Baby Ball gag windshield complete with furry Windjammer.
The microphone also comes with a Rycote shock mount and a 4 channel XLR splitter cable so apart from an audio recorder with at least 4 tracks you’ll be all set to set to start recording Ambisonic VR surround sound. And we can help with a suitable recorder as well – how about the Zoom F8n or a lovely little Sound Devices MixPre 6?
Ambisonics is a multi-channel technique that lets you spherically capture the sound arriving from all directions, at a single point in space. For playback this representation is rendered binaurally, allowing you to virtually rotate the orientation of the perspective in all directions, horizontally and vertically.
Ambisonics is supported by all of the major post-production and playback tools on the market today. This makes ambisonics the appropriate tool for Virtual Reality and all other applications involving 3D sound. A tool to create new worlds of sound with.
Here are links to Sennheiser software you’ll need to convert the raw Ambisonics A format tracks to Ambisonics B format.
