Here you can listen to Bruckner’s, Symphony no. 8, 2nd movement played virtually in the Royal Festival Hall, in London, UK. The multi source auralisation is based on anechoic recordings from Aalto University.

The instruments were recorded individually in an anechoic chamber with 22 microphones: 20 in a dodecahedron arrangement, 1 directly in front, and 1 directly above (as described by this paper). The examples in this page were produced with the tracks from the frontal microphone (0º azimuth, 0º elevation). 

The auralisation was made for the conductor position and 4 audience positions (blue dots) as shown in the figure below.

Source and receiver positions for the auralization.

Below you may download an ODEON Zip Archive of this example, which is a packaged ODEON model (for ODEON Auditorium or Combined, 15.15 or newer) containing all the necessary files to run it: room geometry, assigned materials, source and receiver placements, anechoic recordings, etc. The extracted anechoic recordings can then be used for auralizations on any other room model. 

To unzip an ODEON Zip Archive:

  1. Launch ODEON
  2. Go to File > Zip > Unzip archive
  3. Select your downloaded ODEON Zip Archive
  4. Select a folder to extract the files 
 

ODEON will then automatically load the room.
