EARS Auralization Software
The new auralization software, named EARS for Electronically Auralized Room Simulation, will be discussed in conjunction with the EASE (Electro-Acoustic Simulator for Engineers) acoustic simulation software previously introduced by the authors. Starting from a room simulation in EASE 2.0, the resultant simulated monaural room impulse response, complete with directivity (angles of incidence) information (and stored in EASE postprocessing files) is convolved with outer-ear transfer functions to derive a binaural signal. This binaural signal is then convolved with dry music. The resultant binaural auralization is a function of the selected listening position in the room and the head orientation of the simulated listener.
