An extension of MS recording for ambisonic recording. This technique captures and reproduces true surround-sound, with height information as well as 360˚ horizontal imaging, as opposed to the artificial spatial position of various cinema surround systems. This is accomplished by six separate capsules which allow separate recording of left-right, front-rear, and up-down sound sources. Most use of these microphones is for stunningly accurate stereo recording.
