T06 - Psychoacoustics of 3D Sound Recording (with 9.1 Demos)

Hyunkook Lee, University of Huddersfield - Huddersfield, UK

3D surround audio formats aim to produce an immersive soundfield in reproduction utilizing elevated loudspeakers. In order to use the added height channels most optimally in sound recording and reproduction, it is necessary to understand the psychoacoustic mechanisms of vertical stereophonic perception. From this background, this tutorial/demo session aims to provide an overview of important psychoacoustic principles that recording engineers and spatial audio researchers need to consider when making a 3D recording using a microphone array. Various microphone array techniques and practical workflows for 3D sound capture will also be introduced and their pros and cons will be discussed. This session will play demos of various 9.1 sound recordings, including the recent Auro-3D and Dolby Atmos release for the Siglo de Oro choir.
