New audio rendition procedure
Fi- freaks! Each audio source generates a lot of reflections in the recording room. Starting point of those reflections may regard mirror sources of the genuine audio signal, filtered by the frequency response of the according reflection surface.
The spatial distribution of those mirror sources builds up for the spatial soundfield. Reducing this spatial pattern onto a few of transmitting canals inevitably causing a significant loss of spatial impression.
Ambisonics hasnít a determinate number of loudspeakers, because the procedure is able to generate a much better reproduction. Another way is, synthesizing that spatial mirror source pattern by the rendition side by wave field synthesis principle: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wave_field_synthesis
Unfortunately that procedure wasnít suitably for home use yet, because of the need of speakers all around the listener and the necessarily of damping the rendition room.
I want to discuss another wfs- based idea for including the rendition room properties into the synthesis. The speakers can place alone behind the screen wall then. I have the patented procedure described on my website http://www.syntheticwave.de/
in principle. Would you see that as possible solution of the problem?
