December Inside Track Features Listening Tests

Inside Track

The AES Inside Track features expert industry curators highlighting a topic of choice, with editorial insight as well as links to related research topics, videos, and more. It's available exclusively through the AES Member Portal and is a member benefit, free to all AES members.

This month's curator is Francis Rumsey, who introduces some key resources on the topic of listening tests. As Francis explains, "Listening tests allow us to find out how humans judge the results of an audio engineering process or product. In general we audio engineers are more interested in finding out something about the thing that’s being evaluated than we are about the human perceptual process, although we may be interested in that too. It makes us a bit different to hearing psychologists."

This month's Spotlight video interview, also hosted by Francis Rumsey, features Natalie Agus of Singapore University of Technology and Design, talking about her October JAES paper on binaural room modeling.

The open positions are three Governors-at-Large, plus Regional Vice Presidents for Central Region USA/Canada, Central Region Europe, Southern Europe/Middle East/Africa, Latin American Region, and Asia-Pacific Region. (VPs must be resident in the region they represent.) Two candidates for each position will be selected by the Nominations Committee to appear on the ballot.
