AES San Francisco 2012
Live Sound Track Event T9

Sunday, October 28, 2:00 pm — 4:00 pm (Room 132)


Tutorial: T9 - Large Room Acoustics

Diemer de Vries, RWTH Aachen University - Aachen, Germany; TU Delft - Delft, Netherlands

In this tutorial, the traditional and modern ways to describe the acoustical properties of "large" rooms—having dimensions large in comparison to the average wavelength of the relevant frequencies of the speech or music to be (re-)produced—will be discussed. Theoretical models, measurement techniques, the link between objective data and the human perception will be discussed. Is it the reverberation time, or the impulse response, or is there more to take into account to come to a good assessment?
