An algorithm is described which detects auditory onsets quickly in arbitrary binaural audio streams. Aspects of the precedence effect are implemented to speed up computation, and to increase the usability of the output. The onset detector is tested with a number of binaural signals. Onsets that are suitable for spatial auditory processing are found reliably. This will allow spatial feature extraction to be performed.
