The Generation of Panning Laws for Irregular Speaker Arrays Using Heuristic Methods

  title={The Generation of Panning Laws for Irregular Speaker Arrays Using Heuristic Methods},
  author={Bruce Wiggins},
Currently, the ITU standard surround sound speaker arrangement is based on an irregular 5 speaker array. However, this may change to an irregular 7 speaker array (as is now the standard on computer hardware) or more in the future. The Ambisonic system, pioneered by Micheal Gerzon, among others, in the late 1960’s, is very well suited to situations where the end system speaker configuration is not fixed in terms of number or position while also offering a simple way (via energy and velocity… CONTINUE READING
