Sinusodial lateralization

December 28, 2006



This is a patch made today while reading about interaural time differences and sinusodial lateralization in chapter 2.4.1 of Blauert: Spatial Hearing. The Psychophysics of Human Sound Localization.

The patch should be listened to using headphones and demonstrates how phase offset of one channel cause a perceptual lateral shift of localization of the auditory event. It also demonstrates how this effect weakens as the frequency gets higher than 800 Hz with a frequency of 1600 Hz leaving causing little or no lateralization effect whatsoever.

The patch can be downloaded here.
