What I most miss in MIR Pro is the ability to place a Binaural microphone, E.G. a Neumann Kunstkopf KU 100 for audiences and in keeping with current development maybe a way to import personalized HRTFs from AES69 files.
I was actually wondering right when I got the first version of MIR that something like this is not included out of the box. To me it seems to fit naturaly with the concept of MIR. I'd gladly invest the amount you pay for two packs to just get these features.
Benefits as I see them:
- Most realistic Monitoring of the sound at a given position using earphones.
- With the KU 100 you get good results for a Binaural Mix for a large audience including front of head localisation.
- With personalized HRTFs (Head Related Transfer Functions) you could stick your very specific virtual head into the stage.
A more complex but also more futureproof path there would be to include Higher Order Ambisonic Microphones.
