The new SPS200 A-Format microphone provides the `front end' to capture both stereo and 5.1 surround. It is suited to those working in the field on laptop based recording systems or in the studio on fully fledged Digital Audio Workstations.
The SPS200 A-Format microphone uses the same SoundField multi-capsule technology as the high-end models in the SoundField range. This relatively lightweight microphone (approximately 220 grams) is powered by standard 48v phantom power and incorporates four low noise, studio grade condenser capsules. Ashort break-out cable outputs the SoundField A-Format at mic level on four balanced XLRs, ensuring compatibility with all equipment.
The SPS200 A-Format microphone is the first SoundField microphone that does not require an accompanying control unit. All the processing such as the Ato B-Format conversion, stereo and surround sound decoding/manipulation takes place in software which comes packaged as standard with the SPS200 A-Format microphone.
There are two plug-ins: “SoundField Conversion Lounge” takes care of the Ato B-Format conversion and the “SoundField Surround Zone” looks after all the aspects associated with the stereo and surround sound decoding and manipulation.
The software is currently available for Pro-Tools HD and all platforms supporting VST-Multichannel such as Nuendo, Cubase, Soundscape, etc. on both PC and MAC platforms.
