360° BRIR & FOAIR (SOFA and Matlab library of 360° binaural and Ambisonic room impulse responses)

This is an open-access library of 360° binaural and first-order Ambisonics (FOA) room impulse responses (BRIR) captured in St.Paul’s concert hall in Huddersfield. Using a custom-made head-rotation system that was automated and integrated with the HAART IR measurement software, head-rotated BRIRs were acquired with 3.6° angular resolution for each of 13 different receiver positions. The BRIRs are provided in the SOFA format. It is expected that the database would be useful for studying the perception of spatial attributes in a six-degrees-of-freedom context.
