Lives for gear

I heard the Zylia a year ago, but the demo wasn't very impressive at the time. I'd definitely like to hear it again with the new material. One of the cool things with ambisonics is that once you're into 3rd order, there are a bunch of free pieces of software to manipulate the soundfield in different ways (Blue Ripple, IEM, aalto SPARTA, Kronlachner's ambiX suite, etc.). The best recordings I've heard are from Professor Angelo Farina, done with a 32 channel Eigenmike, then processed and decoded with his own custom software. He's also built clyindrical arrays and is currently working on a custom array using DPA capsules.
