The most important tool for capturing ambisonic sound is specialized, multi-channel microphones. In this video, John Escobar, a professor in the Music Production and Engineering department for Berklee College of Music, discusses the microphone technology necessary to capture ambisonic sound. A first-order mic setup is comprised of four mics in a tetrahedral configuration, based on the pickup pattern and arrangement of the mic capsules. In higher order ambisonics, we can add more microphones. Even though these mics can pick up sound from 360 degrees around them, it’s important to know where the front mic is. Escobar discusses how the pros of ambisonics, such as wide angle capture, and how ambisonics give us a flexibility over traditional formats, and how we can apply them to various media, such as surround audio, virtual reality, background beds, binaural, stereo, and other forms of playback. Escobar also details the drawbacks of using ambisonics, such as larger file sizes, the necessity for specialized equipment, and conversions.
