RPE-01

How timbral quality of sound is affected when using binaural worldizing techniques.

January 2018

Research Aim:

RPE-01 aims to establish whether using a binaural worldizing technique will have any affect on the timbral qualities of sound. The research establishes some key characteristics of timbre and conducts two experiments to establish whether these characteristics are affected in anyway during the process.

Research Outcome:

RPE-01 was able to establish that some negative and positive affects are achieved when using a binaural worldizing technique, and that sound effects that are applied to the technique could be useful as part of a sound mix for film ect. The research establishes some guidelines for using a binaural worldizing technique on sound effects.
