I don't think binaural is good enough yet. If it were, it would be in the interest of the audio industry  to bury it, so they could make more money out of googol.x, object oriented audio (a kind of audio cartoon), existing multitrack facilities, and snake oil.

 

3d TV seems to be on the way out already: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-23195479

Binaural is AWESOME. It's fairly well understood and in the right hands, can produce amazing results. 

 

The main reason why it's not used is because it can't be manipulated as well as a multi-track recording. Artists actually need to know how play an instrument and sing if they are using binaural. Acoustics play a major role in binaural recording. Moreover, a recording engineer really isn't needed when using binaural. 

 

In an industry with a "boys love their toys" mentality and filled with "artists" that can't sing or play....do you really need to wonder why it's not popular?

LOL!

 

Unfortunately, it is a small group.

 

I have a post somewhere on here from when I was an official Head-fi blogger that recommended some of the best binaural recordings you could find.

 

As for the knowledge, I have a post on another forum that links the books.

Well, at least the creators of that academic list had a samples page we can list here! :-)

 

Haven't listened to them yet - but I will.

Artists can be quite precious, and don't have a head for heights..

Here's another - not necessarily everyone's cup of tea, but if features some rather accomplished Indian musicians - Dr. Rajeeb Chakraborty (sarod), and Pandit Samar Saha (tabla); there's a thrid cat from the 'states who sat in to play tanpura (Atmaram Chaitanya). If you like percussive works, you might dig these. I posted these in 320 kbps mp3 as well as flac formats. These tracks were recorded in Stamps Auditorium at the University of Michigan, here in Ann Arbor, MI (USA).

 

The first track features primarily sarod for about the first 10-12 minutes - no tabla at all, but then the tabla comes in and the track subsequently builds in meter and intensity - I think the track is something like 40 minutes in length. The second track (around 20 minutes in length) features the tabla earlier on in the piece. I had no idea prior to recording this gig, but apparently, traditional Hindustani Classical music is based on beat cycles - my contacts helped me out identifying those, and I posted all of that information in the text that accompanies the tracks up on soundcloud for those who want more details.

 

Again, these are not necessarily everyone's cup of tea, but... check it out.

 

Oh, and REMEMBER...the streaming player on soundcloud transcodes everything down to 128 kbps mp3 (regardless of the codec used in the original uploaded file), so to hear what they really sound like, you'll need to download them and listen to those.:
