Configuration of a real-time auralization framework for complex scenes (vor Ort)
* Presenting author
Virtual Acoustics (VA) is a modular framework for the real-time auralization of virtual scenes (Stienen et al., 2019; www.virtualacoustics.org). The focus of this software is on rendering and reproducing binaural audio of virtual scenes. Adequate interfaces and configuration possibilities also allow the controlled application of VA in listening experiments. It is not only possible to separately select and configure the rendering and the reproduction technique, but also to combine different rendering approaches. In this way, for example, different update rates for direct sound and reflections can be chosen, and individual rendering techniques for primary sound sources and background sound sources can be defined. In this work, a set of variants to render a complex example scene containing multiple (moving) sound sources are presented, discussed and evaluated with respect to the application in listening experiments.
