These mics look really nice, and the samples sound excellent.    Even better, we have the manufacturer on board here.    Thank you!!

Thank you for that description.  The VR Ball array provides quite powerful post-production flexibility which works especially well for that application.  Really nice.

"And you also avoid someone pointing at your microphone said: You're pointing to the wrong direction."

Some may think this is in jest, and perhaps it is.  But I actually get this reaction regularly with my OMT setups featuring multiple microphones pointing in various directions away from the source and typically just one pointed directly at it.

First time 7 channel setup, VR Ball.
Addtional to the 2 Omni and 4 Fig-8, there is a open cardioid at the nose position. Connection done with 2 XLR-10 pin socket and cable.

About the same as usual....
Prepared with 4-channel, single plug cables helps a lot.

Addtional to the 2 Omni and 4 Fig-8, there is a open cardioid at the nose position.

I'm intrigued about the open cardioid at the front of the ball.  This arrangement (without the fig-8s) is quite similar to some baffled L/C/R and L/C/R/S setups I use, except the baffle is not spherical and the center microphone is another flush-mounted omni.

If you don't mind a few questions-
How much does the presence of the ball immediately behind the open cardioid capsule effect its pickup pattern?
Have you tried other pickup patterns in that position such as supercardioid or omni?

I'd like to hear some samples with and without the center microphone if you have them available.

Thanks.

Unfortunately, this recording cannot be shared. I will share in the future when I have the right one.

Not even a lossy .mp3..?  Never groveled before, but this might be interesting to hear.

No worries and no rush.  Will be very interested to hear it when you do have something you can share.  Thanks for your presence here at TS.

in that picture, the mic looks like it's facing backwards?    Recording out of phase?

Since it is a 2-part unit, microphone is align with the capsule part. The pre-stage part cannot be align perfectly with the capsule part.
There will be a XY version with 2 cardioid CMS44 in the future, share the same pre-stage.
