Comprehensive overview of auralisations, including simulating an orchestra

A thorough video on auralisations, with Spanish subtitles included (via the YouTube interface).

This video goes over:

  • Auralisation examples from our website
  • Enabling auralisations within ODEON
  • What are binaural impulse responses
  • Anechoic recordings included in ODEON
  • Setting up auralisations in the mixer
  • Calculating and playing auralisations
  • Real-time auralisations using “Streaming Convolution”
  • Wavepacks, additional anechoic recordings from our website
  • Tabulating sources
  • Multi source/signal auralisation expert

Realistic crowd auralisations with a single speech audio in ODEON

Simulating a realistic crowd typically requires several speech sources with varying pitch, spectrum, etc. But with ODEON’s AudioFX tool, you can take a single speech signal, and generate many speech signals with slightly varying characteristics. Then, you can select all of these files and ODEON will automatically set up a complex auralisation with many sources. Auralisations and the AudioFX tool are a feature of the Auditorium and Combined editions of ODEON.

This video goes over:

  • Introduction and example
  • Crowd simulation requirements
  • Using AudioFX to generate speech signals
  • Multi-source auralisation requirements
  • Finding the multi source signal auralisation expert
  • Setting up speech sources
  • Running the calculations
  • Listening to the auralisation
  • Looking at individual sources
  • Copying auralisations

Making a full violin section

Using the AudioFX tool in ODEON you can make auralisations of a full violin section from just one audio source, sounding truly like different instruments and musicians. This video goes through the difference in sound with and without using the Audio FX tool, how you make one audio source into multiple, and how to set up a group of eg. violins based on the audio files made by the Audio FXs tool.


Sound transmission & industrial noise auralisation

If you have your reduction indices/transmission loss values in 1/3 or full octave bands, you can add transmission properties to walls in your model. And if you have ODEON Auditorium or Combined, you can also listen to the result of adding transmission to your model. Here, we show an example in an industrial scenario.

This video covers:

  • Configuring transmission wall type
  • Number of transmitted rays
  • Entering reduction indices from Excel
  • Manually entering/generating reduction indices
  • Adding reduction indices to double walls
  • Setting up auralisation of transmission
  • Adjusting and listening to auralisation
  • Setting acoustically transparent surfaces
