RoomZ is a plugin designed to create dynamic auralisations. Given a spatial grid of room impulse responses, it allows auditory source or receiver movement within that grid. The plugin supports fast multi-core partitioned convolution, custom navigation scenario creation and multi-channel auralisation (monaural, binaural, Ambisonic, etc.). Made available as a freeware for commercial and non-commercial uses, RoomZ is part of an ongoing research effort to make accessible the fruits of acoustic research to audio engineers working with digital audio workstations. This paper gives a general overview of how the plugin works as well as a detailed description of its main components.
