Class SOFTHRTF


  • public class SOFTHRTF
    extends java.lang.Object
    Native bindings to the SOFT_HRTF extension.

    This extension allows an application to request and determine the status of HRTF mixing. HRTF, or Head-Related Transfer Function, is a method of mixing 3D audio for "true" 3D panning, typically using filters designed to simulate how sound is affected by a listener's head as the sound waves travel between the ears.

    As a 3D sound API, OpenAL's design allows implementations to transparently render audio using HRTF. However, the OpenAL API currently has no concept of HRTF so there's no way to query if it's being used, and no way for an application to request it on behalf of the user. This aims to fix that.
