Dummy head stereo and surround

Share a video/audio sample here. Recorded with a basic dummy head with extra 2 pairs of fig-8 oriented horizontally and vertically. So that the audio can be mix toward any direction biased. For surround playback is one possibility, for stereo playback means you can aim the microphone as you wish in post, and vary the polar pattern as you like.
The settings are:
All microphone same gain
Mix with same level, ON or OFF, Polarity None-Invert or Invert.
No level compensation. (Meaning the rear orientation will be lower level)

Easy to tell the difference between direct/ambient, piano/choir.
For practical application, mixing can alter the direct and ambient ratio, changed the (virtual) microphone orientation and polar pattern, and even with continuous variation during music by apply volume curve.

Were the Figure 8 pairs based on your C8 capsule? Very nice recording and interesting to hear the different combinations like that.

Hi Jim:
Yes, the figure-8 mics are C8 capsules.
