Ambisonic Microphones

Introduce ambisonic microphones into Mix

To use Ambisonic sound for your Mix, you need 3DX as well as a converter plug-in distributed by microphone manufactures. Convert from A-format to B-format and input to 3DX.

Ambisonic Microphone Setting

See the list of A-B Converters below for specific configuration examples.


Signal output from the tetrahedral microphone capsule is called A-format in Ambisonics. On the other hand, 3DX input is called B-format. Since the conversion process from A-format to B-format includes microphone correction processing, the plug-ins of each manufacturer are recommended for accurate spatial reproduction.
