ep.binSpat~ is an msp object (abstraction) that handles binaural spatialization for use with headphones through the use of hrtf's. It can virtualy position a monoaural source on a horizontal plane 360 degrees around the listeners head by dynamic control of two parameters: direction and distance. It doesn't control vertical positioning.

Thanx to soundHack for sampling the HRIR's.
Some theory info:
Only tested on OSX 10.4.4 with MaxMSP version 4.5.6. Heard from others that it works on OS9 and Windows XP too, though.
