Searching Impulse Response Libraries Using Room Acoustic Descriptors

Document Thumbnail

The ease with which Impulse Response (IR) libraries can be searched is a principal determinant of the usability of a convolution reverberation system. Popular software packages for convolution reverb typically permit searching over metadata that describe how and where an IR was measured, but this "how and where" information often fails to adequately characterize the perceptual properties of the reverberation associated with the IR. This paper explores an alternative approach to IR searching based not on “how and where” descriptors but instead on room acoustics descriptors that are thought to be more perceptually relevant. This alternative approach was compared with more traditional approaches on the basis of a simple IR search task. Results are discussed.
