How Many Audio Illusions Can You Name?

Over 40 psycho acoustic effects explained      16/02/21

This series of audio illusions takes us through a host of psycho acoustic effects produced by sounds accompanied by a visual representation to put them into context. Audio illusions like the Doppler effect, ever-rising (or falling) risset tones and the McGurk effect are fairly common knowledge, but there are will be some on this list which will  surprise you. 

The whole list is a fascinating discovery of what sound can do, how are ears perceive audio and how they adapt to our environment. Listen carefully, as sometimes the sounds are not all they seem! Many of the examples can be replicated so they could well inspire or influence your own audio experiments..
