    The ambisonics are working well here, nice integrated soundfield. The guitar playing is excellent throughout, but the final 10 minute track is particularly good for me. I had no idea what this would be like, and it was well worth putting on.

    How do you record multitrack and then mix ambisonically? I seems like a hard thing to do, since the directional cues you would get with a soundfield microphone are missing. You’re constructing artificially the acoustic environment of the microphone.

      Many albums, like the Alan Parsons & Steve Hacket one, are mixed using a package of Ambisonic tools that allow you to create an Ambisonic soundfield.

      The easiest,and cheapest, way to learn how to do would be to use ‘Reaper‘ DAW along with some of Bruce Wiggins Ambisonic panner plug-ins.

    This is so sweet! Never once do his fingers ever leave his hands. Also I think I finally “get” what UHJ is about.
