In order to undertake controlled investigations into perceptual effects that relate to the interaural cross-correlation coefficient, experiment stimuli that meet a tight set of criteria are required. The requirements of each stimulus are that it is narrow band, normally has a constant cross-correlation coefficient over time, and can be altered to cover the full range of values of cross-correlation coefficient, including specified variations over time if required. Stimuli created using a technique based on amplitude modulation are found to meet these criteria, and their use in a number of subjective experiments is described.
