SA5 - Psychoacoustics of 3D Sound Recording

Hyunkook Lee, University of Huddersfield - Huddersfield, UK

This tutorial/demo session will explain psychoacoustic principles that need to be considered when making 3D sound recordings, with demonstrating a number of practical 3D recordings made using various microphone configurations. The topics to be addressed include: vertical interchannel time and level relationship, the effect of decorrelation/mic spacing in vertical stereo perception, the role of spectral cue for vertical localization and image spread, and effective microphone configurations for the capturing of height channel ambience. 3D recordings to be demonstrated will be of various types of music: orchestra, chamber choir, string ensemble, organ, piano, jazz funk, etc. This session will be useful for those who would like to learn how perceptual principles can be applied in practical 3D recording.
