SOUNDFIELD MICROPHONES SURROUND VISION FEST

stefan_heger.JPGNEW YORK, NEW YORK – JULY 2008: For six hot days in June, hundreds of avant-garde jazz enthusiasts packed the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center in Manhattan for the 13th annual Vision Festival. All of the best and brightest avant-garde jazz musicians and groups performed to the eager throng, and Stefan Heger, audio renaissance man and chief engineer at Cologne’s Supow Studio, was on hand to record it all in full surround sound. He relied on just one microphone for the surround signal, a SoundField MKV, which possesses the unique ability to capture spatial information with a proprietary signal.
