How does Aural ID work?
Using simple video footage supplied by the user via the free Aural ID Creator mobile app,
Genelec’s experts then analyse the way the user’s head, external ear and upper body affect and
colour the audio arriving from all directions. This effect is totally unique to every individual and
is called the Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF). Aural ID’s cloud-based calculation engine
then models the user’s own head and upper torso features to calculate their personal HRTF. This
information enables precise rendering of audio within the Aural ID plug-in, which is integrated into the
headphone monitoring feed within the user’s DAW – thereby creating a more reliable and trustworthy
headphone monitoring experience.
