Easy full-orchestral auralisations

Auralisations (or auralizations) are simulations of audio signals as would be heard in virtual room model, with its acoustics. In ODEON, auralisations can be set up and calculated easily, even for a full orchestra. Available in the Auditorium and Combined editions of ODEON Room Acoustics Software.

Simulating a full section from a single recording

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.

Realistic crowd auralisations with a single speech audio

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.

Load, play, and analyse impulse responses

If you possess the WAV file of an impulse response, even if it was obtained from outside of ODEON, you can load it, derive the room acoustic parameters from it, and instantly produce auralisations.
