Compatibility breaks:
  • amt* --> amt_*
    • Use amt_start to start the AMT
    • Legacy files provided but will be removed in the future.
    • amthelp --> amt_version
  • gfb --> hohmann2002. Legacy files provided. See note #11 for more details.

  • Functions creating/modifying signals have the prefix sig_ now:
    • Legacy files provided but will be removed in the future. - irns --> sig_yost1996 - whitenoiseburst --> sig_whitenoiseburst - transposedtone --> sig_transposedtone - perfectsweep --> sig_linsweep - notchednoise --> sig_notchednoise - bmsin --> sig_lindemann1986 - simulatedimpulseresponse --> sig_joergensen2011 - itdsin --> sig_itdsin - ildsin --> sig_ildsin - itdildsin --> sig_itdildsin - competingtalkers -> sig_competingtalkers - breebaart2001siggen --> sig_breebaart2001 - bincorrnoise --> sig_bincorrnoise - bandpassnoisefreq --> sig_bandpassnoise
  • Model stages in modelstages have the format modelXX_stageYY now:
    • modelXXstageYY --> modelXX_stageYY
    • ffGn --> zilany2014_ffGn
    • breebaart2001preproc --> breebaart2001_preproc
    • No legacy files provided. Adapt your code if directly calling model stages from your code.
  • baumgartner2017: sound externalization model
  • baumgartner2016: level-dependent sagittal-plane sound localization model for NH and HI listeners
  • hohmann2002: the gfb_ framework of Gammatone filterbank integrated as hohmann2002 framework
  • kelvasa2015: sound localization in cochlear-implant listeners
  • emuexp: emulation of experiments using interative runs like 3-AFC
  • breebaart2001_centralproc: decision stage from Breebaart et al. (2001).
  • exp_breebaart2001: reproduces results from Breebaart et al. (2001) based on emuexp
  • model initiative: interface to the model initiative (Dietz et al. 2016)
Structural changes:
  • baumgartner2014 decomposed into model stages

  • exp_spille2013 merged into exp_dietz2011

  • directories re-structured:
    • main scripts of a model go to: model. They are called nameyear
    • scripts with model stages (model scripts other than the main one) go to: modelstages. They are called nameyear_postfix
    • scripts not being part of a specific model go to: general. They do not (!) start with model name.
    • scripts generating audio signals go to: signals. They are called sig_nameyear or sig_functionality
    • scripts returning measured data go to: data. They are called data_nameyear
    • scripts with default parameters of other scripts go to: defaults. They are called arg_callingfunction
    • files being compiled to mex files go to: mex. In order to be compiled, they must have the prefix comp_
    • files being compiled to oct files go to: oct
    • other files requiring compilation/installation go to: bin. Their compilation must be considered in make.bat (Windows) and Makefile (Linux/MacOS).
    • HRTFs go to hrtfs. They are in SOFA and will be downloaded on the fly.
    • Lagecy files providing backwards compatibility fo to: legacy
    • binaural, monaural, speech, filters removed
Other updates:
  • dietz2011: minor bug fixes
  • data_joergensen2011: completion of data
  • exp_baumgartner2014: new figures, compatibility improved
  • demo_hohmann2002: new figures
  • installation simplified (amt_mex does all the installation now)

Version 0.9.7 (10.6.2015)
