This is the audio dataset recorded in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) by Ambisonic Microphone (AMBEO Sennheiser VR Mic) + Zoom H6 as a body interface. All audio files are still in Ambisonic A-format arrangement which is raw recording of the four individual cardioid capsules in ambisonics microphones. So this is the order of each tracks.
- Track 1 = Front Left Up (FLU)
- Track 2 = Front Right Down (FRD)
- Track 3 = Back Left Down (BLD)
- Track 4 = Back Right Up (BRU)
Remember, the basic arrangement of First Order Ambisonic (FOA) file is in B-format either AmbiX or Fuma order. Hence you need to decode A to B format. You can use Sennheiser AMBEO A-B converter as a VST, AAU, AAX plug-in for your preferred DAW. Please visit this link to download.
Gently reminder: the dataset available here is for specific case only particularly if you use it for subjective test. The Position order in the download page corresponds to the figure above. Further information about technical consideration and so on can be found in our proceeding articles below,
