Major phasing issues, you bet. The problem, or at least one problem is that binaural mikes are omni directional and thus they pick up some sound at 180 degrees off axes or behind them. So, now you have two sets of mikes whose 180 degree off axes is being mixed into separate channels along with the sound from the front of 4 mikes. I don't think you will like the sound. It's a great idea, but people who make this kind of array have done a lot to deal with the problems encountered here.

The question is, is it really worth it? With a setup like that, you run into major phasing issues. Everything would have to be calibrated very very finely. One thing off and the whole mix goes right down the tube. Speaking of such setups, Audio Technica does have a 7.1 channel mic array, but I don't know much about it. -- -- Patrick Perdue (MCP, CNA) KE4DYI Greensboro, NC website: http://www.pdaudio.net home: +1(828)221-2971 Mobile phone and SMS: +1(336)509-5583 e-mail and .net messenger: <Patrick@xxxxxxxxxxx> skype: Borris -------------------- For anything related to the yamaha motif line of keyboards and modules, subscribe to the motif-help mailing list by sending a blank message to: <motif-help-subscribe@xxxxxxxxxxx> This message originally sent in reply to phil@xxxxxxxxxxxx on Wednesday, May 17, 2006 at 6:59 PM EDT.
