Binaural Capture and Synthesis of Ambient Soundscapes (Phase 1)

Industry: SBIR

Applications: Research and Development

Sound Answers has developed a technique that captures the soundscape, i.e. the typical sound of an environment, along with the topographical information of that environment so that a database of sounds and topographies is created to represent different possible environments. Single microphone, binaural head and spherical beamformer recordings were conducted. Pros and cons of single microphone vs. binaural/spherical beamformer recordings were assessed and recommendations for the best soundscape recording technique were established. The recommended technique was also demonstrated at the end of Phase I.
