ICST Ambisonics tools - Bass management
Apr 19 2012 | 10:36 am
Hello Everyone, this is my first post on the forum so please be patient and slap my hands if I am doing anything wrong.
I am using the ICST tools for a music performance in Ambisonics (also trying to extend them a bit with reverberation but I will post about this in the future) and I am now facing the spectrum of bass management.
The band plays a kind of prog jazz that involves a lot of groove and basslines so I would like to obtain the best from this.
My previous experience was to have only one sub and feeding it with low freq and W channel only but I would really appreciate any different view in relation to the ICST tools specifically. my questions:
- how ICST coding manage low freq? is there a crossover system already implemented?
- if asnwer to the above is negative, how would you deliver bass to the ambisonic system? using a crossover 24 dB 4th order filter and deliver only w channel? or using a separate first order coding for a 4 sub rig distributed on a square?
- any other ideas more than welcome.
Forgot to say that, for the moment, I am planning to use a octagon (horizontal only rig) but this will be updated in the future if we get a bit more gigs.
Thanks for your help.
