Strings: wineglass sample recorded with the cheap soundfield mike dead ahead in UHJ and loaded as stereo into Helios sampler, then played back through UHJ and speaker feed decoder using +/- 30 degree feeds, returning these to the PC via the pan-rotate positioning these feeds at -60 and -120 on the right. Not as outrageously complex as it sounds. Could have recorded the sample at the right soundstage location on the mic in the first place but then it would have been single-use only.
Cocktail Shaker: Recorded about 2 metres from the cheap soundfield in the kitchen direct to B-format. This was going to be a real Vodka-Martini being made in a cocktail shaker to celebrate the last track but it turned out that the packet of Bigga marrowfat peas used to check the levels with sounded better and chucking some ice cubes into a beerglass at the end was more sensible than covering the kitchen with Smirnoff and Happy Shopper Vervini Vermouth.
Ting: Recorded direct to B format in the correct soundstage location close to the mic.
