MNTN

MNTN | 3D Audio: Surround & Binaural | Scoop.it
MNTN — The Sound of the Mountain is an app to create immersive audio for
binaural headphone experiences, for sound installations with up to 64
loudspeakers, for live performances, and for 360° / VR videos. MNTN is
built by sound makers for sound makers, and they aim to democratize the
production of 3D audio content.

Object-based audio

Object-based audio | 3D Audio: Surround & Binaural | Scoop.it
Object-based audio is a revolutionary approach for creating and deploying interactive, personalised, scalable and immersive content, by representing it as a set of individual assets together with metadata describing their relationships and associations. This allows media objects to be assembled in ground-breaking ways to create new user experiences. With the introduction of HTML5 and the Web Audio API, an important prerequisite was made for native rendering of object-based audio in modern browsers.
bleisaetze's insight:
Great site from IRT, the research lab of German Broadcasters, explaining and demoing what object-based audio can do. 
You should access the site with up-to-date browsers Chrome and FireFox.

WDR 3 Hörspiel - 20.12.2016 - WDR 3 Hörspielplayer

WDR 3 Hörspiel - 20.12.2016 - WDR 3 Hörspielplayer | 3D Audio: Surround & Binaural | Scoop.it

Unsere Welt wird von Optik dominiert. Doch überall ist Klang. Die gesellschaftlichen Räume sind voller Soundsysteme. Hinter ihrer scheinbar selbstverständlichen Anwesenheit stehen aber auch Machtinteressen und Durchsetzungsstrategien. Kaum ein Reiz ist zur Manipulation und Kontrolle so gut geeignet wie der Klang. Denn man kann ihn nicht kommen sehen. Genauso wenig wie Black Noise, die elektrisch erzeugte Sound-Bombe, die Mythos und Wirklichkeit in die Luft sprengt.

bleisaetze's insight:
Brillant documentary  on the strange story on research and  application of ultrasound, infrasound and targeted aufio (mostly in German). Produced in binaural sound.

AMBEO® Downloads

AMBEO® Downloads | 3D Audio: Surround & Binaural | Scoop.it
The AMBEO Orbit is a Sennheiser’s free binaural panner plugin, designed to facilitate mixing immersive binaural content.
Pairing the Neumann KU100 – reference for binaural capture – with the newly released AMBEO Orbit plugin you gain full flexibility and control over your binaural recording. You can now effectively position additional mono or stereo sources into the 3D sound field, avoiding the unwanted coloration. In fact, the patented clarity control allows you to choose how much of the binaural coloration to apply. Additionally, the unique interface for creating binaural room reflections allows you to drastically improve spatial accuracy in comparison to a reverb plugin.
The AMBEO Orbit plugin is available in AAX, VST, VST3 and AU format for both Mac and Windows.
bleisaetze's insight:
Add sources freely to a #binaural bed/mix with the AMBEO Orbit plug-in by @SennheiserUSA . It's modelled on a KU-100 dummy head.

Sounding Special: Doctor Who in Binaural Sound - BBC R&D | 3D Audio: Surround & Binaural | Scoop.it
We’re really excited that this Saturday a special binaural version of “Knock Knock”, episode 4 in the latest series of Doctor Who, will be available on the BBC iPlayer. It gives an immersive spatial sound experience for headphone listeners. This version was remixed using the BBC R&D binaural production tools at BBC Wales in Cardiff. This post is for those wishing to understand a little more about the technology behind it and our vision for developing it in the future.

Atemberaubendes Kopfkino - oe1.ORF.at

Atemberaubendes Kopfkino - oe1.ORF.at | 3D Audio: Surround & Binaural | Scoop.it

Eines der Hauptprojekte bei Wien Modern war in diesem Jahr die Aufführung von Olga Neuwirths "Le Encantadas". Mit diesem Werk hat die österreichische Komponistin eine akustische Reise durch einen Klang-Archipel gestaltet. Dass das 70-minütige Werk ganz ohne Bilder zum atemberaubenden Kopfkino wurde, verdankte sich nicht zuletzt ausgefeilter Raumklang-Technik: Mit dem Pariser Ircam hat Neuwirth die aus allen Richtungen kommenden Glockenklänge in der Lagune ihrer langjährigen Wahlheimat Venedig räumlich präzise eingefangen.

Binaural decoding of ambisonic spatial audio relies on Head Related Transfer Functions (or their time-domain equivalents - HRIRs) which are unique to each individual. However, our studies showed that some datasets perform better on average than other datasets, in the case when an individualized set is not available.

We tested a large number of available HRTF datasets.....We found that SADIE KU100 set performed best for majority of the participants...

Razor-AHRS/razor-9dof-ahrs Headtracker | 3D Audio: Surround & Binaural | Scoop.it
This tutorial describes how to put together an Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) which does not cost much (around 140$/120€) and works very well. It can be used in projects requiring real-time 3D orientation tracking such as

Robots
UAVs and autonomous vehicles
Image stabilization systems
Head-tracking, e.g. for binaural audio applications (The SoundScapeRenderer - a spatial audio reproduction tool - has Razor AHRS support built in. My Android Mobile Dynamic Binaural Synthesis project is using the tracker as well.)
