I want to invite you to test your hearing and perception.
I have posted a couple of sound clips on Sound Cloud.
Here is the first.
The question is… Is this sound effect Stereo or Mono?
Please don’t download the sound until after you have made your decision.
Please use your ears and your perception to decide, don’t load it into a DAW and investigate.
Having trouble deciding?
It is subtle isn’t it.
When you have made a decision and not before, here is a mono version of the same sound.
You can hear the difference right?
So what do you think is going on?
Again, is the first one stereo?
I discovered something really interesting about sound earlier and how we perceive space and I wanted to share it with you.
Please don’t cheat, just use your ears and post in the comments box below.
When I have enough confused sound engineers, I will post the solution.
