  • Publication number: 20210329396
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a signal processing device, a signal processing method, and a program capable of stabilizing localization of a sound image in a center direction. Input signals of audio of two channels are added to generate the addition signal. Moreover, convolution of the addition signal and a head related impulse response (HRIR) in a center direction is performed to generate a center convolution signal. Furthermore, convolution of the input signal and a binaural room impulse response (BRIR) is performed to generate an input convolution signal. Then, the center convolution signal and the input convolution signal are added to generate an output signal. The present technology can be applied, for example, in a case of reproducing listening conditions in various sound fields.
