Auralization of Omnidirectional Room Impulse Responses Based on the Spatial Decomposition Method and Synthetic Spatial Data Jens Ahrens
Paper i proceeding, 2019
The spatial decomposition method decomposes acoustic room impulse responses into a pressure signal and a direction of arrival for each time instant of the pressure signal. An acoustic space can be auralized by distributing the pressure signal over the available loudspeakers or head-related transfer functions so that the required instantaneous propagation direction is recreated. We present a user study that demonstrates based on binaural auralization that the arrival directions can be synthesized from random data such that the auralization is nearly indistinguishable from the auralization of the original data. The presented concept constitutes the fundament of a highly scalable spatialization method for omnidirectional room impulse responses.
