Following 2018 presentations at shows like NAMM or the AES international convention in New York, and availability in the European market, the spherical microphone array is now available for purchase online in the United States through B&H.
“We’re happy to share the remarkable technology of ZYLIA ZM-1 with musicians and audio engineers in the United States,” says Zylia co-founder and chief operating officer Piotr Szczechowiak. “We think people will be impressed by its performance and attractive pricing.”
The ZYLIA ZM-1 is a spherical microphone comprising 19 high-quality MEMS microphone capsules and offering 360-degree sound capture that can be configured and manipulated using ZYLIA Studio, ZYLIA Studio PRO, and ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter software. The ZYLIA ZM-1 can autodetect sound sources from around the microphone and then capture that sound into the software as separate tracks for further editing on a digital audio workstation. The system is very portable and requires only a USB connection to Mac or PC for both data transfer and power supply.
The January 2018 edition of audioXpress features an article from Piotr Szczechowiak, co-founder and COO at Zylia, explaining the inception for its ZM-1 spherical microphone array, and patented recording sound-source separation technology. To read more abou the ZM-1 follow this link.
