Sound Reinforcement: SR07 - Psychoacoustics for Sound Engineers

Presenter:
Peter Mapp, Peter Mapp Associates - Colchester, Essex, UK

The tutorial will discuss and illustrate a number of psychoacoustic phenomena and effects that we use every day when designing and setting up sound systems. Understanding how we hear and discriminate sounds can lead to improved system design, alignment, and optimization. Topics that will be discussed include how we integrate and perceive sounds arriving from different directions and at different times and levels, perception of frequency and frequency balance, the audible effects of latency in systems, IEMs and sound / video synchronization, the Lombard speech and level effect, binaural listening versus monaural measurement.

AES Technical Council This session is presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Acoustics and Sound Reinforcement
