AES Fall Show 2021 (workshop on Ambisonics and virtual microphones)

Another basic Ambisonics-related workshop to help people get into spatial sound.

All music examples were recorded at the Music Academy of Bydgoszcz. Thank you to everyone who helped and the students that volunteered.

Workshop description “In this workshop we will focus on multi-microphone setups for music production, using single Ambisonics microphone arrays. Ambisonics microphones are often used to record full spherical sound fields for different purposes, including virtual reality. But an especially interesting use of their spatial audio technology is the possibility to create beamformings (aka, virtual microphones) after the recording has already been done. To comment on this, this workshop will address Ambisonics recording, directionality/polar patterns, virtual microphone setup, and mixing. All this will be illustrated by practical audio/in-DAW examples of spatial recordings done in studio of several musical instruments. By the end of this workshop, you will understand the process from start to finish, being able to successfully use Ambisonics microphones as additional tools for music production. “
