I am experimenting with spherical array Impulse Responses from different datasets and surprisingly none of the multiple datasets that I found works with SPAT5.2.7. It may be some misunderstanding with changing conventions, but would be great to find anything that works with SPAT.
Maybe I am doing something wrong, but here are the datasets that I tried, so perhaps it is worth looking into the file SOFA support:
- 2012/2020 " A Spatial Audio Impulse Response Compilation Captured at the WDR Broadcast Studios" A Spatial Audio Impulse Response Compilation Captured at the WDR Broadcast Studios | Zenodo (uses SingleRoomDRIR convention)
- 2019 “Dataset: Eigenmike-DRIRs, …” Dataset: Eigenmike-DRIRs, KEMAR 45BA-BRIRs, RIRs and 360° pictures captured at five positions of a small conference room | Zenodo (uses SingleRoomDRIR convention)
I am planning to learn how to extract wav files from SOFA DRIRs and encode wavs into SOFA files, but so far it seems I need to use Python or Matlab for this. When I see that SPAT reads some SOFA RIRs, then I can test encoding of wav RIRs into SOFA format that works with SPAT.
Thank you very much.
