Re: B&K PULSE 3560C +".DAT" FILES

Try using Audacity. It's a free audio workstation that can import raw data
files. Though not knowing how the files are saved you might need to
experiment with the import settings, but 32-bit little-endian floats seem to
give something reasonable.
Otherwise if you have access to matLab, the fread command will easily handle

Subject: [AUDITORY] B&K PULSE 3560C +".DAT" FILES
I have a database of binaural recordings performed by Prof. Qu and
reported at IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON AUDIO, SPEECH, AND LANGUAGE PROCESSING,
17, NO. 6, AUGUST 2009.
(The database is available
The database comprises .DAT files for each azimuth, elevation, and range of
measurement. I presume that the .DAT files are produced by a B&K PULSE 3560C
mentioned in their article. I understand this is a binary file, and I was
to convert them into wav files or at least being able to read them but I
know the format of the file, nor have access to a B&K Type 7698 software.
I tried to contact B&K and the authors but haven't received any reply yet,
meanwhile, I would like to ask your help in this issue, and also to share my
frustration for not being able to find a free tool to read it. As with so
other software companies, they offer free readers for files produced with
non-free applications (take the Microsoft Office suit as an example). Is
anyway I can read these files?
Thank you for your cooperation.
