This paper reports on the types and magnitudes of localization errors of simulated binaural direction cues generated using non-individualized, head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) with different levels of complexity. Four levels of complexity, as represented by the number of non-zero coefficients of the associated HRTF filters (128, 64, 32, 18 non-zero(More)
Individualised head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) have been shown to accurately simulate forward and backward directional sounds. This study explores directional simulation for non-individualised HRTFs by determining orthogonal HRTFs for listeners to choose between. Using spectral features previously shown to aid forward-backward differentiation, 196(More)
The acoustic modality is of paramount importance for human inter-individual communication. Consequently , the human auditory system is highly differentiated and able to perform sophisticated tasks such as the identification, recognition and segregation of concurrent sound sources in acoustically adverse conditions – e.g., in reverberant or noisy(More)
Although there have been numerous studies investigating subjective spatial impression in rooms, only a few of those studies have addressed the influence of visual cues on the judgment of auditory measures. In the psychophysical study presented here, video footage of five solo music/speech performers was shown for four different listening positions within a(More)
Virtual Microphone Control (ViMiC) is a real-time mul-tichannel spatial sound rendering technique based on sound recording principles. In an auditory virtual environment , ViMiC simulates multichannel microphone techniques, resulting in the characteristic Inter-Channel Time Differences (ICTD) and Inter-Channel Level Differences (ICLD) to create the spatial(More)
