I’m looking forward to checking this mic out. I’ve never used an ambisonic before, and am wondering from anyone that has, specifically with respect to decoding from A format to B format via software. How involved is post-production for what we do (generally mixing to stereo)?  I presume it’s sort of like anything else, you get the hang of it and it becomes routine?  Curious as this seems to be a pretty compelling, modern application of the Soundfield expertise in an affordable package.  I’ve done a couple blumlein onstage recordings with the LSD2 and I am really impressed with what that mic can do, and have listened to a ton of Soundfield st-250 recordings and love those, the ability to manipulate the height, etc.

A format to B format is easy.  In fact, some recorders will pretty much record directly to B format, but that may depend on the specific mic.  I know the Zoom F8 (and I believe also the F4) will save to B format with the Sennheiser Ambeo.

I use a Core Sound TetraMic, and the post production is definitely more intensive than with a pair of mics, but it's also not all that daunting.

What makes you interested in the Rode mic in particular?

The Rode mic interests me for a couple main reasons: the Soundfield pedigree and price point of $999 w/ all accessories including software (thanks to Rode’s scale and ability to produce quality at reasonable cost, of course TBD how well they’ll execute).  I know there are others out there but this seems pretty attractive and worth checking out.
