SoundField introduces DSF-1 music surround mic system

At the upcoming AES show in New York, British microphone manufacturer SoundField will introduce the DSF-1 music surround microphone system. Designed specifically for music recording, the DSF-1 builds on the success of the company’s DSF-2 Broadcast Mic System and incorporates SoundField’s technology to enable high-resolution capture of ambient or image-critical music events that must ultimately fit a variety of delivery formats — from the traditional stereo to multichannel formats.

Once employed for capture, the DSF-1 can deliver audio in mono, stereo, 5.1, 6.1 and 7.1 surround as well as B format, the archival medium for future formats, all without leaving the digital domain. The SoundField DSF-1 is an easy-to-use microphone system and technique that avoids the phase error problems associated with other multimic or multichannel capture methods.

The DSF-1 is comprised of a SoundField microphone and a digital output preamp/processor designed to interface seamlessly with industry-standard hardware and protocols. In addition to selectable 48/96/192kHz output sample rates, the DSF-1 can also output audio at the CD mastering standard of 44.1kHz, as well as 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz. Both word clock input and output are provided as standard. Like the DSF-2 broadcast version, the DSF-1 allows users to: change the microphone pickup pattern remotely; effectively rotate and invert the mic without physically handling it; adjust the angle or width of the final output in stereo or surround; and deliver the final output in mono, stereo, mid-side or surround sound. Using SoundField’s Surround Zone software, all these adjustments can be affected in post environments from all common DAWs.

The DSF-1 is a solution for capturing performances where imaging of the recording is important. It will be on display along with other new SoundField products in booth 851 during the AES show, Oct. 5-8, in New York.
