Spat and SOFA files

Hi T.

I was wondering if it’s possible to use external HRTF SOFA files with the spat.spat~ object. I tried using the spat.hrtf.infos object to send the coefficients to the spat.spat~ objects, but it just stated invalid message.

Is there a way for the spat.spat~ objects to use other HRTFs?

Hi Justin,

Spat objects currently support SOFA SimpleFreeFieldHRIR files. (SimpleFreeFieldSOS is also ready for the next release)
To use SOFA files with spat.spat~, just use the message [load yourfile.sofa]
(assuming spat.spat~ is configured in binaural mode)
Use the [info] message to make sure it’s properly loaded.

spat.hrtf.infos is mainly used to inspect the files; but you cannot send the coefficients to spat.spat~.

Hi T.

Thanks! That’s simple enough, not sure why I thought it was more complicated than that.
