About

Welcome to my website.  I’m a lecturer at the University of Derby, UK and teach in the Electronics and Sound dept. of the School of Technology.  My staff page can be found here.

I’ve created this website so I can make more regular updates about my work in higher education, surround sound research and other general points of interest (to me, anyway!).

Hope the site is of some use!

  1. Hello,
    I’ve enjoyed your blog and wondering if you would be able to point me in the direction of resources to figure out how to transcode 4 channel binaural audio to ambisonic b-format (ultimately needs to be in Furse-Malham layout). I appreciate any insight you can provide.

  2. Hi Jennifer. When you say 4 channel binaural, do you mean something like the Chris Milk quad binaural (i.e. 8 channels), or do you mean four channels (four ears…..)?

    cheers

  3. It should be possible to get something resembling B-format out of it. However, I’ve never used one of these mics, and the ears will make the conversion somewhat challenging (ears are easy to add later, harder to take away 😉 ) and you’ll not be able to get any height information (Z channel)

  4. Hi Bruce. I am trying to find a 2nd or 3rd order decoder for an 8 speaker horizontal array. Do you know of any others that may work? VST or audio unit?

  5. Hi Bruce,
    We are looking to integrate ambisonic track streaming from http requested MP4 videos in our multi-platform Unity VR content distribution app.
    Do you know if there are available solutions for this?
    How long would it take to develop a decoder and play the ambisonic track from a streamed MP4 from scratch?
    Any references could greatly help.

    Thank you dearly for your wonderful website!

  6. Hi Bruce, great set of resources but sadly I can’t download your PC plug ins as the link seems dead…
