AP01 - New Developments In Acoustic Simulation: Reflections On Year One In An Acoustic Lab (Predicting Audio Accuracy With Algorithms & Virtual Reality)Presenters:

In 2018 prototype Acoustic Lab listening rooms were constructed in WSDG offices in Basel, Switzerland, Berlin, Germany, and Highland, NY. Over the past eighteen months projected acoustic properties of a series of diverse environments ranging from a sports stadium to theaters, classrooms, a railway terminal, and a sophisticated high end listening room were among those simulated in these Labs. This tutorial will review the evolution of methodology for developing accurate audio and 3D VR room modeling simulations of pre-construction acoustic properties. Programs include audio and visual simulations illustrating various acoustic options resulting from the engagement of a variety of acoustic treatments and speaker placement configurations. New developments in software, client response and completed projects will be discussed.
