Title Effective amplitude measurements
Description Effective amplitude measurements (i.e. within-trace signal-to-noise ratio) from smoothed tympanal responses for 23 iterations of signal within the masker. Signal amplitudes were measured from 30 ms time segments corresponding with signal pulses; masker amplitudes were measured from 30 ms segments in the middle of the interpulse interval (i.e. 200 ms after signal-pulse onset). Data plotted in figure 6D.

Title Raw laser vibrometry measurements from the masker ipsi- and contralateral ears in response to spatially separated target signal and masker at varied signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs)
Description The target signal was broadcast from the forward location at 76 dB SPL while the masker was broadcast from a lateral position at varied intensities to achieve three SNRs (-6, 0, +6 dB). Data from different flies are found as separate Excel sheets within the data file. Effected amplitude measurements derived from the raw data are plotted in figure 7A. Figure 7 – Source data 2. Mid-angular headings from behavioural experiments. Excel file include responses to a 76 dB SPL target signal broadcast alone from the forward speaker, a masker broadcast alone from the forward speaker, and the 76 dB SPL target signal and masker broadcast at varied signal-to-noise ratios (-6, 0, +6 dB) from spatially grouped or separated speakers. Data plotted in figure 7C.

Description RMS calculated over 40 ms time segments during an interval with a target signal and a spatially separated masker broadcast at varied signal-to-noise ratios (-18, -12, -6, 0, +6 dB), and an equivalent time window during masker broadcast alone.
