Ambilibrium—A User-Friendly Ambisonics Encoder/Decoder-Matrix Designer Tool

The name "Ambilibrium" is composed of the terms "Ambi" (prefix)—Latin: around and "aequilibrium"—Latin: balance. This engineering brief discusses the implementation of a tool that creates the spatial balance within any spherical microphone array to any loudspeaker array in the form of custom Ambisonics encoder / decoder matrices packed in a user friendly interface. A technique for automatic loudspeaker position estimation using similar approach to GPS and the optimization of the AllRAD are also discussed in this engineering brief.
