Multichannel Microphone Array Design
5 Channel Microphone Array Design for Front Sound Stage Coverage
Select the required Microphone Directivity Pattern

This will take you to the first stage in the Multichannel Microphone Array Design process

(No links to Natural or All Arrays, or to Hypercardioid or Bidirectional Directivities are at present available)
Hypercardioid
Bidirectional
-10dB at 180°
-6dB at 90°
-11.5dB at 180°
-6dB at 180°
 
Root Arrays
A selection of Microphone Arrays where the angle between the microphones is the same as the Segment Coverage angle and no Segment Steering by Electronic Offset is necessary to achieve Critical Linking.
Natural Arrays
(UNDER PREPARATION)
A selection of Microphone Arrays using ONLY Microphone Position Offset to achieve Critical Linking.
No Electronic Offset is required.
All Arrays
(UNDER PREPARATION)
The complete selection of Microphone Arrays. Segment Steering is applied, where needed to achieve Critical Linking, using both Microphone Position Offset and Electronic Offset.
