SOUNDFIELD ST350

Soundfield’s (booth #848) new portable ST350 ($5,900) microphone system comprises a lightweight multi-capsule mic and compact mic pre/control unit that generates surround and stereo simultaneously at balanced line-levels. m offers the company’s technology in a miniaturized package powered by A/C or batteries.

The ST350’s electronics are capable of driving long cable runs, enabling it to be positioned hundreds of yards away from its control unit or, alternatively, handheld on a short boom.

Control features include high-performance mic pre’s with discretely switched 6dB gain steps and composite five-segment LED bar graph for level monitoring. Continuously variable control is offered over the stereo polar patterns from omni to cardioid to figure-8, with a width control providing everything from mono to wide image stereo. End fire and invert controls are provided to correct for 3-D mic positioning while maintaining the correct stereo and surround perspective. Other features include highpass filtering to reduce rumble and wind noise, switchable M/S output and headphone monitoring.

The ST350 can be used with the SoundField Surround Zone software. Surround Zone is now available on the Digidesign Pro Tools, Steinberg Nuendo and SADiE platforms.
