2) an analog remix from 2" tape of acoustic guitar and female vocal and
3) a DSD recording of the Bob Mintzer big band recorded by Tom Jung.
Also included is an externally clocked version so you can compare the converters while uniformly clocked.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: A free SoundField 5.1 DVD-Video Demo Disc is now available from the Transamerica Audio Group, Inc., the exclusive importer of SoundField microphones to the U.S. All you have to do to get your free DVD is log-on to www.transaudiogroup.com and register.
To make the demo disc, a SoundField microphone was used to record various types of sources, including live concerts, sound effects and local bar bands. The results of these recordings can be heard on this free SoundField Demo DVD in 5.1 played through a Dolby(r) 5.1 Decoder, which is built into most receivers and DVD players. Also included on the DVD is an overview of the entire SoundField microphone product line.
SoundField microphones offer the recording community the best opportunity to discover the potential of 5.1 in tracking and remixing of all types of audio sources. In addition, the SoundField microphone uniquely offers simultaneous stereo, M/S or mono feeds from a SoundField recording.
"The SoundField mic breaks a new barrier in 5.1 recording in offering spectacular imaging and ease of use in one simple package," says Brad Lunde of Transamerica. "SoundField microphones eliminate phase error or other imaging problems usually associated with multi-channel recording and because SoundField technology is so unique, it must be heard to be understood."
SoundField Microphone technology is useful to anyone who requires 5.1, stereo, M/S and mono applications. Using the company's B-Format output process, a single SoundField microphone can archive material for later use in any final output format, such as 5.1 stereo, M/S or mono (or future output forms such as 10.1). SoundField B Format material is sent through a SoundField SPS451 processor to achieve 5.1 or stereo, or is output in real-time from the SoundField preamp to stereo, M/S or mono. SoundField B format can also be sent to a SoundField Mark 5 Processor to alter microphone position, pattern and stereo pair angle in post.
