Re: In search of Basic Pedagogical Audio Material
I have received good responses from students when I played some of Al
Bregman's very nice demos. The cd can be ordered from his webpage
http://www.psych.mcgill.ca/labs/auditory/bregmancd.html for $25. Some of
the demos can be downloaded for free.
I usually also use the ASA demo cd which can be purchased at their website
http://asa.aip.org/discs.html for $5.

Within a very short (2 days) course on Sound Synthesis, I would like to
introduce the very basics of psycoacoustics.... in something like 1 hour,
or less !
I already have the sufficient scientific background & material.
Unfortunately I have no exemplary sound.
Would anyone have a WWW pointer, or a CD reference, that would help me
finding such basic exemplary sounds ?
I would be particularly interested in sound examples on :
- perception of Timbre (3D timbre space, suppression of attacks or of
spectral enveloppe evolution, emergence of several instruments by applying
- sound localization, room and space perception
- perception of pitch (of sine sounds, to begin)
- eventually auditory illusions
Note that I don't plan on offering a deep introduction to psychouacoustics
Basically, the simple message I would like to transmit to learners is that
audio perception is something complex, sometimes astonishing.
I did not find such www pointers in the list archive, nor on google.
I consider generally that asking for pedagogical material is not very nice...
I allow myself to do so in that case because the core topic of my course
is not psychoacoustics, and because I am only looking for the basics.
Hope you'll understand !
I thank you all in advance,
all the best,
