A hear-through system for plausible auditory contrast enhancement

Publication ID 73152
Abstract In many of our everyday and professional routines, we rely on knowledge we gather from the auditory feedback of physical interactions. In an attempt to facilitate some of these listening practices (particularly percussion), we introduce a hear-through system for intra-stimulus Auditory Contrast Enhancement (ACE) in real time. Plausible spectral ACE is achieved by adopting the neural mechanism of lateral inhibition. Additional decay prolongation facilitates pitch perception. Perceptual plausibility of the augmented auditory feedback from the observer-perspective is investigated in an experiment with auditory-visual stimuli. Measured plausibility forms material-specific patterns depending on spectral dynamics and decay prolongation.
