Re: Recording lots of microphones

I get it, so you're going to make a flat array of mics and then use the time delays between the microphones to pick out position of multiple objects. Positional RF is of course a well studied science these days with RADAR and SONAR. Passive sonar in particular seems to be more what you're thinking?...

Well, the advantage of my method would be, that you have a directional microphone, that can be directed at something else later, if you have just the recorded audio streams saved somewhere. With your elliptical dish around the mic, you're stuck with your direction at time of recording. So no, it won...

If a sound is played at x = 10, it will arrive at the x=-1 microphone later than at the x=1 microphone. By delaying the au...

Isn't the second one easy? Since a point has no size, you can define the point to be your color, and the chance that the other side is the same color is just the part of the earth that's shaded in that color. As in, if you have 0.3 chance of blue, and you pick your point as blue, there's 0.3 chance ...
