A double-blind study was conducted to evaluate a recently developed microphone technique for three-dimensional orchestral music capture, optimized for 22.2 Multichannel Sound. The proposed technique was evaluated against a current 22.2 production standard for three-dimensional orchestral music capture, as well as a coincident, higher order ambisonics capture system: the Eigenmike. Analysis of the results showed no significant difference in listener evaluation between the proposed technique and the current production standard in terms of the subjective attributes “clarity,” “scene depth,” “naturalness,” “environmental envelopment,” and “quality of orchestral image.”
