The Haas Effect

In this video I’ll demonstrate the Haas effect.

It is a psychoacoustical phenomenon discovered in 1949 by Helmut Haas. The law states that when one sound is followed by another with a delay time of 40 ms or less, the two are perceived as a single sound. If the delay time is higher the human ear will instead register the sound as an echo.

This effect may enhance your audio productions by:

  • taking your sounds from mono to stereo.
  • making an instrument sound bigger, wider.
  • adding depth to your sound.
