Developments in Audio File Formats.

Our current work is focussed on multi-channel and surround-sound audio, and frequency-domain representations.  We are especially interested in the Sound Description Interchange Format (SDIF), under development at CNMAT and IRCAM, and in the new multi-channel format defined by Microsoft, WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE.

Current projects:

PVOC-EX - a new portable file format for phase vocoder analysis data, based on  WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE, with software.
                    Latest Versions use the FFTW libraries  for a significant speed increase.

Ambisonic B-Format file format, based on WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE
