Diffuse-Field Equalisation of First-Order Ambisonics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Timbre is a crucial element of believable and natural binaural synthesis. This paper presents a method for diffuse-field equalisation of first-order Ambisonic binaural rendering, aiming to address the timbral disparity that exists between Ambisonic rendering and head related transfer function (HRTF) convolution, as well as between different Ambisonic loudspeaker configurations. The presented work is then evaluated through listening tests, and results indicate diffuse-field equalisation is effective in improving timbral consistency.
