Lee, Hyunkook and Millns, Connor (2017) Microphone Array Impulse Response (MAIR) Library for Spatial Audio Research. In: Audio Engineering Society 143rd international convention, 18-21st October 2017, New York.

This engineering brief describes an open-access library of an extensive set of room impulse responses (RIRs) captured using numerous microphone arrays from 2-channel stereo to 9-channel surround with height. The RIRs were obtained for 13 loudspeakers placed in various positions on a stage in a reverberant concert hall. The library features five 2-channel stereo pairs, 10 main surround arrays, nine height microphone arrays for 3D main arrays and 15 4-channel configurations for surround and 3D ambience arrays, each with varied microphone polar patterns, directions, spacings, and heights. A dummy head and a first-order-Ambisonics microphone are also included. The library is provided with a rendering tool, with which the user can easily simulate different microphone combinations in both loudspeaker and binaural playback for 13 source positions. The library can be freely downloaded from the Resources section of the APL website: https://www.hud.ac.uk/apl
