Spatial Hearing and Rendering
OpenMusic and OMPrisma
We then started OpenMusic, loaded the library OMPrisma and realized our first sound source spatializations with the class
pan.discrete for stereo, quadrophonic and 5.0 panning. We used numerical specifications and also employed a
bpc object to visualize the position in cartesian coordinates. Note, that while stereo and quadraphonic panning allows setting of arbitrary (symmetrical) panning functions, the 5.0 panning is based on circular harmonics (see link below). We will look at this in more detail next class.
As your assignment for next class on January 7, 2016 please write a short (about 1-page, single-spaced) resumé of this article (in English or German) – which can be found on the Literature list – and upload it via the Uploads page before January 7. NB This will require a user login.
