Description

ExpSuite Installer This is a full package of ExpSuite and contains:
  • AMTatARI, a viewer and measurement tool for HRTFs saved in the ARI format. It is for MS Windows and requires MATLAB.
  • VSP, a player for virtual sound positions, using ARI HRTF data to filter sound samples. It is for MS Windows and requires MATLAB.
AMTatARI Test Setting  Use this settings file in AMTatARI to interact with the HRTFs. Short how-to:
  • Save target file to your computer
  • Open this settings file in AMTatARI
  • Set the "work directory" in View/Settings to the directory with your HRTFs
  • Connect to MATLAB with Run/Connect
  • Execute the Post-Processing Toolbox (right-bottom part of the main screen)
  • Load the HRTFs with "Load *M from..."
  • Plot in the median plane by using "Plot hM", Loading "HRTF: median, pcolor", and clicking on "Plot"
Further details can be found in AMTatARI documentation
VSP Test Setting  Use this settings file in VSP to play virtual sound positions, filtered with the HRTFs. Short how-to:
  • Save target file to your computer
  • Open this settings file in VSP
  • In View/Settings, set the data directory "Sound files" to the directory with your sound files
  • In View/Settings, set the data directory "HRTF Set files" to the directory with your HRTFs
  • In View/Settings -> Variables, set positions (Azimuth, Elevation) and sound file(s)
  • Connect to MATLAB with Run/Connect
  • Create List; when asked if you want a uniform distribution press "No"
  • Select any item in item list and press "Stimulate Selected"
Further details can be found in VSP documentation
Hrtf2DtfCtf Calculates directional transfer functions (DTFs) and the common transfer function (CTF) for the HRTFs in ARI format according to Middlebrooks (1999) and Majdak et al. (2010).
ARI2STx Convert ARI HRTFs to STx format
ARI2CIPIC Convert ARI HRTFs to CIPIC format (ARI and CIPIC database)
CIPIC2ARI Convert CIPIC HRTFs to ARI format (ARI and CIPIC database)
hor2geo Convert coordinates from the horizontal-polar system to the geodetic system ([Lat, Pol] -> [Azi, Ele])
geo2horpolar Convert coordinates from the geodetic system to the horizontal-polar system ([Azi, Ele] -> [Lat, Pol])
