The 3DCC Microphone Technique: A Native B-format Approach to Recording Musical Performance

Document Thumbnail

In this paper we propose a “native” B-format recording technique that uses dual-capsule microphone technology. The three dual coincident capsule (3DCC) microphone array is a compact sound?eld capturing system. 3DCC’s advantage is that it requires minimal matrix processing during post-production to create either a B-format signal or a multi-pattern, discrete six-channel output with high stereo compatibility. Given its versatility, the system is also capable of producing a number of different primary and secondary signals that are either natively available or derived in post-production. A case study of the system’s matrixing technique has resulted in robust immersive imaging in a multichannel listening environment, leading to the possibility of future development of the system as a single six-channel soundfield microphone.
