A method for spectral and spatial multichannel analysis/synthesis of interior aircraft sounds is presented. We propose two extensions of the classical sinusoids+noise model, adapted to multichannel stationary sounds. First, a spectral estimator is described, using average information across channels for spectral peak detection. Second, the residual modeling is extended to integrate two interchannel spatial cues (i.e., coherence and phase difference). This approach allows real-time synthesis and control of sounds spectral and spatial characteristics. It finds applications for multichannel aircraft sound reproduction, and more generally for musical and environmental sound synthesis. The ability of the model to reproduce multichannel aircraft sounds is assessed by a numerical simulation.
