The SoundScape Renderer is a versatile software framework for real-time spatial audio rendering. The modular system architecture allows the use of arbitrary rendering methods. Three rendering modules are currently implemented: Wave Field Synthesis, Vector Base Amplitude Panning and Binaural Rendering. After a description of the software architecture, the implementation of the available rendering methods is explained and the graphical user interface is shown as well as the network interface for the remote control of the virtual audio scene. Finally, the Audio Scene Description Format, a system-independent storage file format, is briefly presented.
