In this paper, we present a framework for recording real musical auditory scenes for interactive virtual acoustic reproduction over headphones. The framework considers the parameterization of real-world soundfields and subsequent real-time auralization using a hybrid image source method/measurement-based auralization approach. First Order (FOA) and Higher Order (HOA) Ambisonics are utilized together in a single system to provide an optimized and psychoacoustically justified framework.
