Immersive & Spatial Audio: IS05 - Building Listening Tests in VR

Gavin Kearney, University of York - York, UK
Tomasz Rudzki, University of York - York, UK
Benjamin Tsui, University of York - York, UK

In this workshop we will demonstrate how to prepare and conduct various listening tests in VR easily with the tools we created. Our open source tool-box consists of Unity objects, VST plugins, and MATLAB based data analysis app. It provides an end-to-end workflow from creating the test to visualizing the results. Researchers can create their own listening tests which can be run on different VR headsets, e.g., Oculus Rift, HTC Vive. We will dive into some of the actual use-cases to show the practicality and robustness of using audio-visual VR presentation for perceptual tests. We would like to encourage researchers to use the toolbox, express feedback, and contribute to the project development.

AES Technical Council This session is presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Audio for Games
