Research into spatial sound requires the use of a speaker array capable of reproducing sounds around and above a listening position. Different arrays have been developed which are often limited in their accuracy due to room size, the number of speakers employed and their positions. They are also expensive to develop which restricts access for many researchers. A unique array, The Equidome, has been developed with speakers around and above the listening position and it uses audio software capable of locating a sound anywhere over the array, and moving a sound throughout the array. The Equidome is a personal research facility capable of 3D spatial composition with mono, stereo, multichannel or ambisonic source files and reverberation software is also utilized to create immersive soundfields throughout the array.
