Utilizing Instantaneous Direct-to-Reverberant Ratio in Parametric Spatial Audio Coding

Scenarios with multiple simultaneous sources in an acoustically dry room may be challenging for parametric spatial sound reproduction techniques, such as directional audio coding (DirAC). It has been found that the decorrelation process used in the reproduction causes a perception of added reverberation. A model for DirAC reproduction is suggested in this paper, which utilizes estimation of instantaneous direct-to-reverberant ratio. The sound is divided into reverberant and non-reverberant parts using this ratio, and decorrelation is applied only for the reverberant part. The results of formal listening tests are presented that show that perceptually good audio quality can be obtained using this approach for both dry and reverberant scenarios.
