Scattering Effects in Small-Rooms: From Time and Frequency Analysis to Psychoacoustic Investigation
This work continues the authors’ effort to optimize a DSP tool for extrapolating from R.I.R. information regarding mixing time and sound scattering effects with in-situ measurements. Confirming past thesis, a new specific experiment allowed to scrutinize the effects of QRD scattering panels over non-Sabinian environments, both in frequency and in time domain. Listening tests have been performed to investigate perception of scattering panels effecting small-room acoustic quality. The sound diffusion properties have been searched with specific headphone auralization interviews, convolving known R.I.R.s with anechoic musical samples and correlating calculated data to psychoacoustic responses. The results validate the known effect on close field recording in small rooms for music and recording giving new insights.
