Re: HRTF Question

Hi David, I have some HRTF's that I have measured myself which are
publicly available. Also, the CIPIC data base (from Algazi and Duda's
group) has about 30-40 subjects. The HRTFs aren't really generic but
what some people do is that they listen to couple of them and pick the
one that works best. Some people also use the HRTF's of a mannequin
called KEMAR (included in CIPIC also).
You can find my database at http://www.isr.umd.edu/Labs/NSL/ under
downloads. I know there are some more data bases out there but I don't
have the info.

Hi All,

A related question: Are there any "generic" head-related transfer
functions available somewhere for download/borrowing?

Subject: HRTF Question


I'm currently doing some research into head-related transfer functions.

In the articles that I've looked at so far, it's mentioned that the
torso plays a role in the creation of the perceptual cues that enable
sound source localization.

I'm curious as to whether there has been any research comparing
whole-body rotation (i.e. where the head and body move as one unit) as
opposed to head-only rotation (where the body remains fixed as in
sitting in a chair and turning the head to look sideways).

It seems that the HRTFs for these two cases would be different as the
ears' positions with respect to the shoulders/torso is not the same?

Is that correct?

Are there any articles that examine this issue?
