Sounds like a fun listening test. I'll try and give a listen tonight if I get the opportunity. How would you like us to submit our answers?


I'm strongly considering trying one or two of your figure-8s as a Mid-channel microphones in my multichannel arrays, but haven't gotten around to doing anything about it yet.

PM me your answer. Will do other fun test when I have time. Want to do VR/Surround next time.

Will do.  Didn't get a chance to listen last night, but will do so once I get home next week.

Still not yet receive correct answer. This B9audio FSM44V could be yours as soon as you are the first one give the right answer.

I've still not made the time to listen properly but look forward to doing so, if only to test my perception of stereo microphone configurations.   I see the youtube link with answers posted immediately above is the same link that was posted previously.  So as not to spoil the self-test, will I be able to avoid inadvertently seeing the answers until after doing the listening?

Develop the a very flexible stereo microphone. It can be almost the same as a fixed single body stereo microphone, but can be re-configured when you need to do so.
This is a demo of a small spaced stereo between coincident Xy and ORTF.

How does that do xy or mid-side?  It looks like the microphones are spaced apart horizontally.

This is the XY setting. The MS setting can be configured with the same bracket with end address M and a standard figure-8.

Recorded a nearly sold out rock show with CM150f DINa in a less than ideal position- in the corner of the room near the SBD

https://images.app.goo.gl/SkxhPJu18ak6tBd48 <- Sbd Visible near bottom left of image. Mics were as tucked into the corner as possible directly next to the wall.

They performed rather admirably considering the circumstances. EQ'd to reduce some low end boominess and applied a de-esser.

https://archive.org/details/tmg2019-08-28

I recorded a show from the same band in a different venue the following night. Mics were in more ideal position DFC roughly 30' back. DINa was PAS. I matrix'd it with some CA-14s I had on stage- I am a big fan of the band's drummer and love the capture from the kit with CA14 on stage lip. Let me know if anyone wants the B9 raws and I can upload.

During developing B9audio series products, there're several possibilities:
1. Single one body design. Includes capsules, pre-stage, and XLR plug in a single body. Same as most microphones.
2. Inter-changeable, capsules as pure capsules. Pre-stage and XLR can be a single body, or the XLR can be separated by a cable (CMP1C) or by a low profile boom (BM xxx C).
3. Inter-changeable, capsules always built together with pre-stage. Such as MKH8000, or CCM, that the XLR part could be separated to insert optional module. Not a bad idea, since the electronics could be optimised and always low-impedance, and balanced.

Modern electronics technology makes it possibly to shrink down in some way, but not in the other, such as the true condenser capsules and XLR connectors. XLR maybe bulkier than modern connectors, but it is already an established standard that is so popular, and doesn't seem to be replaceable.

2 years after CMP1 announced, FSM series built upon CMP1C, a pre-stage that the XLR plug was separated from a single body. And this makes it possible to build a very flexible stereo microphone. No matter it is ORTF, XY, MS....
In this way, the user doesn't have to stock all kinds of microphones, instead, a single system that can be configured according to demand.
There will be some exciting new products coming out later, and it is so nice that name brands agreed to our point of view by releasing their new products.
