The main aim of the projection of sound sources is to change the perceived direction of the auditory event from the direction of the real source to the direction of the projected source. However, the focusing capabilities of projecting sound sources are physically limited. Therefore, the perception of the listener is not only influenced by the projected sound but also by the sound that is directly radiated from the real source. In a scenario with projected sound sources a complex mixture of perceptual attributes change besides the direction of the auditory event. The present study describes this perceptual processes and investigates some of those attributes.
