How can I open “*.mat” files corresponding to the transfer function? I have tried using MATLAB without result.March 7, 2018 at 4:51 pm #506
We are sorry for the late reply.
Somehow we missed your post.
To answer your question, we are sorry again.
The “.mat” file is not a MATLAB file.
Please see the document on this format at

Don’t worry about the late reply:)
I have already seen the document ‘https://www.hark.jp/document/2.4.0/hark-document-en/sect0031.html’, but I’m sorry because I can’t see the answer of my question on it.
As I understood form the question number 111 in “FAQ” , to check if the transfer function was correctly generated there are two ways:
1-Looking if the localization and recognition results match
2-Openning the ‘.mat’ file and checking the content directly
My question is :How can I look at the content of my ‘.mat’ files directly?

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Now I understand that you are talking about FAQ 111.
You can use one of the harktool5-cui tools, harktoolcli-mat2csv, to convert the mat file that you want to look at to a csv file.
If you are using Windows version of HARK, then you should have it in your PC.
Type the following command in the Command Prompt:
If you are using Ubuntu version of HARK, then you need to install harktool5-cui by typing the following commands in the terminal:
sudo apt-get install harktool5
Then, you can use harktoolcli-mat2csv in your terminal.
We are sorry that we are not providing the document for harktool5-cui in English.
Instead, we have an update for you regarding the answer to FAQ 111.
We released harktool5-gui.
With harktool5-gui, you can visualize the transfer function.
1. Upload your transfer function in zip format on the top screen.
2. Display Transfer Function Screen.
3. Select ‘Localization/Separation’ for TF type.
4. Click on Graph Plot button.
You can check the document in the following link:
I hope I was able to answer to your question for this time.

Thank you for your answer!
I couldn’t use Harktool5 because I got some errors when installing it, which affected hark-designer. Now when I run hark-designer I get the attached images.
I’m using HARK 2.2 version. Could the problem be related with this?
Once I have solved these issues, I will let you know how it went.

I really am sorry I assumed you were using the latest version of HARK, 2.4.
harktool5-GUI works with HARK2.4 or later.
Do you think you can update HARK to the latest version?
By the way, I just want to make sure to avoid any more misunderstanding.
The harktool5 that you are talking about is harktool5-GUI, not harktool5-CUI.

Thank you very much for your answer!
I have previously installed the last version of HARK but I couldn’t make it work with Kinect. So instead I’m using HARK2.2 because it is the latest version that has been tested using Kinect microphones.
Yes. I’m talking about harktool5-GUI.
Thank you again for your help:)
