Welcome to the download page of the FFT-based binaural panner.

Here you will find the latest version of the panner. For earlier versions, please contact me directly.

FFT-based binaural (version 4.0, June 2020, ~6.36GB)

Changes in version 4, compared to version 3:

  • Now structured as a package for Max with better documentation and help patchers.
  • Subject HRTF matrix files are now combined for left and right ear (one plane for each).
  • The data in HRTF matrix files are offset (compared to earlier versions) which means that the first and last elevation in matrix now equals a straight downward rotation of the azimuth semi-circle.
  • The jit.matrix files now have the file ending .jit (instead of jxf) which seems to be the new thing.
  • The jit.matrix object is now embedded within the panner, and all instances share the same jit.matrix data unless specific @matrix_name is given.
  • Azimuth input is now specified in the range 0-1 and elevation is specified in the range 0-2.
  • An mc version of the panner is now included (as kindly suggested by Simon Rycroft).
  • Name of patcher abstraction is changed to binpan~ (and mc.binpan~).
  • The panner now requires one argument, FFT_window_overlap_factor = Number of overlaps of FFT windows (int, power of two, 4 is recommended for most cases).
  • Subject HRTF matrix file for subject 10 is not included because I noticed that it lacked some data for the right ear (probably an error that I made back in the days when importing from matlab).
  • The Java objects HRTFSubjectMatcher and DirectionAndDistanceHandler are no longer included, both because I am now more skeptical regarding the usefulness of the HRTFSubjectMatcher and because I wanted to get rid of all the Java which might cause issues with Java versions, missing libraries etc.. Also, the DirectionAndDistanceHandler was not really a part of the base functionality.
