I heard about this one, glad you got to see it at the show! Beyer has had one out since 2001 but I dont think it ever caught on for tapers. I havent heard it either. Is just the pattern digitally controlable or is the output AES or something. Great, now we'll have to bring 3 laptops to the show. ;)

Now I've got to go dig through the old magazine pile. Someone did a great story on these mics after NAMM last year. I think it was EQ. I'm pretty sure the mics output digitally  :)

Schoeps has a system whereby you can model the polar pattern too although it is not digital...

Fun toys for when we hit the lottery!

you know i didn't quite get a chance to read all the details.  it would make sense to have a AES out, otherwise you would be standard XLR out which would throw an analog link into the mix.  i dont think you would be able to change the pattern on the computer screen through an analog connection, just doesn't make sense.  as far as i can remember it came out of the mic into a box, or router type thing and into the laptop.  i would assume that box would be a power supply for the mics as well as a signal processor.  i know i have an info sheet somewhere in my piles of mess, around my house.  try to find out more info for us all to drool over.
