System And Method For Binaural Spatial Processing Of Audio Signals

Audio signal processing is the intentional modification of sound signals to create an auditory effect for a listener to alter the perception of the temporal, spatial, pitch and/or volume aspects of the received sound. Audio signal processing can be performed in analog and/or digital domains by audio signal processing systems. For example, analog processing techniques can use circuitry to modify the electrical signals associated with the sound, whereas digital processing techniques can include algorithms to modify the digital representation, e.g., binary code, corresponding to the electrical signals associated with the sound.  Binaural sound recordings are produced by a stereo recording of two microphones inside the ears of a human or a mannequin head. Such recordings include most cues for sound spatialization detected by humans, and thus, they are able to realistically transmit the localization of the recorded sounds, and in effect provide a three dimensional experience of the soundscape for the listener.
