My question is, can anyone provide a comprehensive list of books and/or resources to read and learn about Ambisonics and Binaural processing? I’m thinking that as I prepare to experimenting in AR/VR world, it would be good to get a full grasp on Ambisonics and Binaural concepts first.
Thanks in advance for all the help!
only to tell you that I am editing a more in-depth post on this, I hope it should be ready for the end of August, due to my interfering (!) working holidays.
By now I’ll quickly point you out to few resources.
Here the someway obvious Wikipedia pages:
– Binaural Recording: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binaural_recording
– Ambisonics: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambisonics
Here the historical Ambisonic archive site: http://www.ambisonic.net/

I’ll update this to let you know when I will manage to publish the detailed post.
