I'd imagine the aliasing was like the voice of an angel..... Not sure why you'd even do such an experiment though.

why not? Haven't you ever wondered what a sound progressively pitching up would be like when you were 14 years old?

Audio experiments

If you're using Linux, try "cat /dev/urandom > /dev/audio"

Obviously, you can route anything else you want to /dev/audio.

I'm a bit confused by this 'binaural headphone' concept. Headphones always have 2 audio sources, the only variable in the sensation of depth is the audio data playing. I did the wiki trawl as it appears others are drawing their source info from, and the only key piece to it is that of the mannequin head recording technique, which in effect really just deploys a stereo pair of mic with a lump in between.

I'm failing to see the complexity of this concept, or uniqueness of it.

Thing is when it's set up exactly like your ears would be in a human head, it records the same microscopic delay on each side (or phase differences) as if you were just by the sound source in real life yourself. These differences are what allows your brain to triangulate the position of the sound source relative to your head.

A bit of a mish mash of second and third person in that post. Hopefully it's still understandable.

Yes it is, my confusion is that of the 'binaural headphone' aspect. All head phones are binaural and there was a bit of a tech out at 'binaural headphones' that seemed really misinformed. I may have read things wrong.

No, you're right. Binaural headphones technically refers to plain stereo headphones.

Binaural recording refers to that fancy way of setting up a dummy head with two mics in its ears and blablabla.

But I checked that thing Chron bought and it really seems like those are headphones designed for binaural recordings. Cool stuff. "Binaural headphones" is just a bit of a bad name for it.

yes I suppose the correct technical term would be "holophonic" headphones - but everyone seems to like the binaural word these days..

not sure what the price is for the roland one, but this cable costs $40-50 (i got mine for $40 from a local shop), and i can vouch that its a functional and reliable cable :)

I don't have any way of uploading anything music related, so don't slap me with wet soggy cocks, but I do like music in general. I play string bass.

As much as that is completely awesome, how does the ability to record binaural sound help in music production? I'm completely confused what these headphone are made to do... Are they made to record binaural sound?

The recording sounds really good... just ou of curiosity...how much were they?
