Hello everyone! My name is Gordon McDonagh and I am trying to find out if anyone has conducted any research into pitting localisation cues against harmonicity. Below is a brief outline of my project, if anyone can suggest any past research that may help me, I would be most grateful. Thank you in advance for any help, Regards, Gordon Currently I am experimenting with additive synthesis and surround sound. I am separating sounds into their component parts ie sine waves and spreading the component sines around a 3D field. The harmonicity effect will join the sines together so the subject will hear the original waveform but localisation cues will try and work out where each single sound is coming from. I wish to see which comes out on top (harmonicity vs localisation) and use the information to develop a synthesis method for surround sound useage. I am interested in surround sound techniques, additive synthesis, localisation with multiple sources, Harmonicity and Psychoaccoustics with paricular reference to Auditory Scene Analysis and Spectral Fusion.
