Analyzing and Extracting Multichannel Sound Field

Current post production workflow requires sound engineers to create multiple multichannel audio delivery formats. Inaccurate translation between formats may lead to more time and cost for extra manual adjustment; whereas in sound reproduction, it causes misinterpretation of the original mix and deviation from the intended story. This paper proposes a method that combines both analyzing an encoded Ambisonics field from the input multichannel signal and analyzing between each pair of adjacent channels. This allows an overall understanding of the multichannel sound field while having the ability to have a fine extraction from each channel pair. The result can be used to translate between multichannel formats and also to provide a more accurate rendering for immersive stereo playback.
