E-mail address & website

For my e-mail address, please see my website.

Ambisonic credentials

I have joined this Wiki because it looks like you guys have an interest in Ambisonics. I can help with this. I have been following Ambisonics since 1977, and have owned an Ambisonic decoder (a Minim AD 7) since 1994. I also created and maintain the Ambisonic Surround Sound FAQ. More recently, I was involved in defining the ".amb" and ".uhj" specifications for dowloadable B-Format and two-channel UHJ files. I have also proposed the ".amg" file format for downloadable G-Format files. However, I do not work in pro-audio; I am just a domestic listener.

Ambisonics on XiphWiki

I found that the Ambisonics page on this Wiki had been marked for deletion. I removed this, and created a page discussing some of the problems of handling Ambisonic B-Format, UHJ format, and G-Format.

External resources on Ambisonics

  • There is now a set of Wikipedia articles on Ambisonics.
  • Of particular relevance is the ".amb" specification for downloadable B-Format files. There are currently over 100 pieces available in this format for free download. Most of these are first-order full-sphere soundfields. The ".amb" spec has some limitations which it would be useful to overcome.
  • There is also the ".uhj" specification for downloadable two-channel UHJ files, although it is not currently in use. The ".uhj" spec also has some limitations which it would be useful to overcome.
  • I have proposed a ".amg" specification for downloadable G-Format files.
  • My website has many pages on Ambisonics (including at the bottom links to other Ambisonic websites).

Useful links (really here for my benefit)
