Description

Codes a signal into the ambisonic B format

Syntax

aw, ax, ay, az bformenc1 asig, kalpha, kbeta
aw, ax, ay, az, ar, as, at, au, av bformenc1 asig, kalpha, kbeta
aw, ax, ay, az, ar, as, at, au, av, ak, al, am, an, ao, ap, aq bformenc1 \
      asig, kalpha, kbeta
aarray[] bformenc1 asig, kalpha, kbeta

Performance

aw, ax, ay, ... -- output cells of the B format.

aarray -- output array to hold cells of the B format.

asig -- input signal.

kalpha –- azimuth angle in degrees (anticlockwise).

kbeta -- altitude angle in degrees.
