In this report, a new rendering method of a moving sound with the Doppler effect is proposed. In the conventional rendering method of moving sound, Head Related Impulse Responses (HRIRs) are simply changed according to a sound position. However, the Doppler effect cannot be added to a sound in this method. The pitch of a sound object must be controlled using some other rendering method when a sound object moves at high speed. In our method, each HRIR is divided into two components, such as an initial delay and a main wave form. Two initial delays of both right and left ears are recalculated, respectively, based on relative speeds and a propagation path. These new initial delays are used in rendering. Therefore, the Doppler effect is added to a sound automatically only when a sound position is set in this algorithm. Details related to this algorithm are discussed in this report.
