Migration of 5.0 Multichannel Microphone Array Design to Higher Order MMAD (6.0, 7.0 & 8.0) with or Without the Inter-Format Compatibility Criteria.

The severe limitations of the 5.0 Multichannel Reproduction Standard in reproducing good quality audio-visual or stand-alone audio surround sound reproduction has increased the pressure on recording and reproduction system designers to increase the number of channels in an attempt to give an even more satisfactory envelopment experience. This paper extends the MMAD process to show how higher order channel array designs (6.0, 7.0 and 8.0) can be developed from the existing data on 4.0 or 5.0 Multichannel Front Sound Stage Coverage Array Designs with almost perfectly seamless and linear surround sound reproduction. Designing for inter-format compatibility can also be accommodated from the existing multi-format array design data described in a previous paper on Multichannel Arrays Generating Inter-format Compatibility (MAGIC arrays)(3).
