  • Patent number: 10993067
    Abstract: An apparatus configured to use captured spatial audio content captured by a rotatable spatial audio capture microphone array, the captured spatial audio content defining the three-dimensional arrangement of the audio in the scene, an orientation of the aural scene defined relative to the microphone array at the time of audio capture, and use captured direction data representative of the direction of a reference direction of said microphone array relative to the scene over a time during which said spatial audio content was captured; to generate modified spatial audio content in which the aural scene is decoupled from any rotation of the rotatable spatial audio capture microphone array that occurred during capture of the spatial audio content for presentation to the recipient user relative to a space in which the recipient user is located by virtue of modification of the orientation of the aural scene using the captured direction data.
