Sound

This page provides links to some sound resources. These come in two forms: plain old monaural, and rather specially recorded binaural stereo. There are also some links to other interesting pages.

Monaural

There are some recorded sounds (you can save them to your own filespace by right-clicking on each link and selecting "Save Link As..."):

Binaural

The department has a nice setup (in 4B65) for recording binaurally. This equipment (which actually belongs to Stirling Hearing Systems) consists of a skull (from a medical supplier: made of hard plastic, but otherwise biologically accurate) covered with Latex (by Manchester University), and mounted on a model torso.

With this we have recorded some simple binaural sounds. Listened to with headphones, these give a much more powerful illusion of direction and location than standard stereo recordings.

Raw versus MP3 Recordings

Compare the following two recordings, one in raw CD quality sound format and the second MP3 compressed format:
