Mike had this to say about the NYC Ambisonics library -
I have listened to most of the tracks in this library and they are brilliant, and very well recorded. Several stand out though, especially the ride on the New York subway as well as the subway platform, and Chinatown is full of life. This way of delivering sound effects has to be a key way forward, especially for atmos tracks as we have the content in a future proofed format. As surround formats change then it is simply a matter of having a decoding plug-in that will take the B-Format signal and break it out into the appropriate surround format. No need to buy new material, use upmixing plug-ins, and so on.
This expanded library is absolutely incredible when decoded from four track Ambisonics to 5.1 or 7.1, using the bundled Surround Zone 2 plug-in. If you do not wish to work in discrete surround, it is still possible to use other Ambisonics plug-ins to manipulate the sound image.
