ReaSurround in Reaper is pretty good, after reading your question I did find this post in the Reaper forums that does pretty much exactly what you want. http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=133619 Check out the demo file he created, it definitely simulates that soundstage well. I started playing around with it a bit, and it's not super intuitive, ...

The Roland CS-10EM's are a really good pair. I recently bought them and am really happy with its result.

When I was studying computer music at Eastman back in the late '90's, this is something that was being actively developed by the composing community. The best effects rely on understanding psychoacoustics. My teacher Alan Schindler was writing code along these lines in CSound, a free programming language developed at MIT, which is nice because it is ...

I have only used the Roland CS-10EM's but I will say that they surprised me! Much better signal to noise ratio than I had anticipated and a relatively flat response, however the LF does roll off as might be expected. Comfortable to wear, however, be careful when monitoring as feedback will strike fairly easily. I have only heard that the Soundman plugs are ...

Another great free tool for HRTF-based binaural encoding is the Ambisonic Toolkit: http://www.ambisonictoolkit.net/ This is a B-format encoder/decoder: when you suggested recording 4 channels and then converting to binaural, the technology to do so is ambisonics, using a 4-channel encoding called B-format. However, I'm not sure how easy it is to manually ...

That's what they call "omni-binaural", captured with microphones like this one. It provides 4 stereo independent binaural channels, one channel for each direction+orientation. On VR video playback, a linear mix of the different channels is made, depending on the actual momentary orientation of the user.

that claims to have embedded in them messages at a frequency that people cannot hear That's an odd claim to make. Subliminal messages can be done in video: the theory is that you can show a message during 1 frame of the video and it'll be too short to be consciously picked up, but it can be read and processed unconsciously. If an audio message is at a ...

Hiding messages in an unhearable spectrum will have zero effects on any human, no matter what they claim. However, we can still analyse whether they have indeed hidden something or not. You could use the free tool Audacity to do all this. The MP3 encoder usually heavily compresses anything above 16 kHz or even completely remove it, depending on the bitrate. ...

For a cheap way out you could just plug some ear-bud headphones into your mic-inputs. Headphones can work in reverse too! then place the earbuds in your ears but facing outwards and you'll get a bin-aural recording. This will work better with actual mics placed on either side of your head. You can simulate the binaural experience using reverbs and eq but ...

I am assuming you are auditioning the content on headphones - going by your experience of the sound of the voice being "inside" your head. There are a couple of ways to achieve bringing the voice forward into the front of the sound-stage. you use spatial audio techniques with ambisonic encoding and binaural decoding with a specific Head-Related-Transfer-...

It seems achievable using mono files and doing extra-careful,senstive mixing. If you're also interested in useful VR tools, the spatializer Occulus included in their development kit is quite useful at setting sound at a specific point in space. You can use it standalone, in daw, middleware, in game engines - it's pretty awesome: https://developer.oculus....

I made these specifically to improve the quality of DIY binaural microphones. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/binaural-microphone-ears

I was mildly surprised that this was the first Google result... http://www.ebay.com/bhp/ear-model

hi i'm 18 months late in on this discussion, but have most of the mics mentioned and have worked through them in search of low self noise and natural sound. The 19dB Sound Professionals binaural mics are the only mics that i think meet the low noise natural sound and genuinely in ear criteria i have been searching for. They seem to perform at best when ...

Omnis should be chosen. And if you choose a pair instead of just one (if you can't sample-accurately reproduce the clock after placing the microphone in the other ear and doing the measurement for the same azimuth & elevation), they should be calibrated so that their response is similar (complicated stuff there). If you choose to acquire binaural ...

It is possible, however you would need to have the original signal. I use octave/matlab to create and test vocal signals. You need to do this for both signals separately 1) fft (Fast Fourier transform) on the signal 2) get all the frequencies, amplitudes and phases and place them into arrays 3) compare the data stored into said arrays to each other. ...

The Pro 8 MK2 Handle has the xlr connector. Hopefully the connector is balanced and thus does not induce hiss. However hiss could be induced if the Output Noise of the Telinga mic is too high given its sensivity and the the noise floor of the Mix Pre D. You should take a look at the specs. Loud traffic sounds are very problematic for low level source ...

I have a pair of these Binaural microphones from Roland which have monitors built in to the earphone. The only time I've ever dealt with feedback issues is if the monitoring level is very high. I've use them quite a bit for field recording and recording impulse reponses and really enjoy them. The price is right too. Email me if you'd like to hear some test ...

i'm using these: DPA4060: very good sound, you need phantom power (XLR adaptor), but you can use them also with a cheap 9V DIY battery box on any 3.5mm mic in, i.e. sony m10 etc. they're a bit expensive... OKM2: nice fit, easy to handle, nice sound if it's not to quiet, they have a pretty high noise floor. Primo EM172: that's basically a capsule, use 2 and ...

I'm getting incredible results with these http://microphonemadness.com/products/mmbinstermic.htm and my sony pcm m10 - and they work with on board phantom (plug in) power on the unit. Extremely quiet and lovely. I am attempting to disguise them and failing though!
