The Ambeo VR is microphone for Virtual Reality (VR) recordings. It features four matched KE 14 cardioid capsules in a tetrahedral arrangement. It can record 360° spherical audio content from one single point. The capsules of the Sennheiser AMBEO VR Mic deliver A-format, a raw 4-channel output that has to be converted into a new set of 4 channels, the Ambisonics B-format. This is done by the specifically designed Sennheiser AMBEO A-B converter plugin, which is available as free download for VST, AU and AAX format for PC or Mac. B-format is a W, X, Y, Z representation of the sound field around the microphone. W being the sum of all 4 capsules, whereas X, Y and Z are three virtual bi-directional microphone patterns representing front/back, left/right and up/down. This allows any direction from the microphone to be auditioned by the listener during playback of Ambisonics B. Includes balanced split cable 4 x XLR-3, 1.5 metre extension cable (DIN12F to DIN12M), Rycote suspension mount, foam windshield and proprietary A-B encoder plug-in.
