Equipment for Holophonic Recordings?

    I was hoping someone might be able to shed a bit of light on the world of holophonics for me. I've searched and searched but the only information I get are the basics. Nothing about the required equipment to both record as well as produce the interference signal to make holophonic recording possible.

    It might seem unnecessary to some, but I like to dabble, and would appreciate any insight to the subject.

    Look up Pink Floyd - The Final Cut & Zucarelli Labs.

    Have gone both routes. That still doesn't explain any of the equipment involved with the process, just the basics of what it is comprised of. Thanks though.

    A dummy head recorder is equipment, so there's one piece of the puzzle...

    Neumann is the only one that I know of ... any other manufacturers of a binaural dummy head ??? ... perhaps giving them a call would help?

    I use to have piece of stereo equipment that use to do that it achieved it's results by comb filtering if I remember right. It delayed some parts of the signal to take away some of the phase cancelations or something like that. It's been a long time.... slept since then so I don't even remember if my memory is correct on this. Under the right circumstances with certain effects it sounded like things were flying over your head with only 2 speakers. Of course time aligned speakers help with the effect. Wish I could remember who manufactured that.....

    Mushrooms and LSD can also provide you with that aural alchemy. You'll love all of the different colors of the sounds. Look! There goes some now! I have to try and catch it. It's muttering something about " I'm late. I'm late. For a very important date. No time to say hello goodbye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late...."

    As the saying goes, "If you remember the 60's you were not really there."

    I was born in 1955. I became a hippie at age 12 in 1967. Smoked my first joint in 1969. Then I became a broadcaster, recording engineer. I'm still a hippie but not a virgin. Sorry. You could've helped me with my multiplication.
