Default The Integral Transference Project

A gentleman over at AudioKarma.org posted a rather bizarre thread regarding some 'revolution' in home audio, called the Integral Transference Project. I have not have the time to dig through it as of yet, but some of the best minds in audio tend to cruise these forums, so I thought perhaps that if I called attention to the site here, perhaps some basic understanding on just WTH this thing is all about might be at hand.

What I've read so far is thick and the overall concept is muddied by writing that appears more to be trying to impress a university professor rather than make clear the basic idea and then delve into techicalities. Whatever it is, I certainly plan on doing battle with the white papers offered at the site, and would be way more than curious of the thoughts of those who know and understand the behavior and nature of sound reproduction better than I.

Brilliance or BS, either way, the link is there for your perusal. Now if a few Ph.D's will step up and tell me what these guys are doing...

Rule of Thumb: when someone uses the word "paradigm," be cautious. When someone uses it in the first sentence, be VERY cautious. When someone uses it seven times on a page, you're almost certainly dealing with either BS or some simple idea being puffed up to make it seem grand.

Did a little deeper...perhaps a few of the white papers. This guy has done some serious research into this whole thing. Few go to these lengths to propagate BS...

It may be a basic idea dissected to the point where it looks unrecognizable, but then again...

Well, for a start, he needs to be taken out, put against a wall, and shot for his abuse of the English language...

If anyone, supposedly that educated, can't write clearly and coherently, then they are trying to hide something.

:edit: I got to figure 20 in the second white paper, and it all clicked into place... It's an April Fools joke...

:Blink:... two random sentences are enough BS for me... brrr

The diagrams (what few I bothered to look at) seem to be getting at reproducing sound as it comes from the instrument, spatially. It'd be cheaper to staff performers and buy their instruments.

The author of these papers has joined in a discussion in a thread over at AudioKarma. Anyone who's curiosity is piqued might hop over and jump right in...

OK, the gentleman has made it clear that he is not the author of these papers. Whatever...
