Abstract

QUEIROZ, Marcelo et al. AcMus: an open, integrated platform for room acoustics research. J. Braz. Comp. Soc. [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.3, pp.87-103. ISSN 0104-6500.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/BF03192566.

This article describes the design, implementation, and experiences with AcMus, an open and integrated software platform for room acoustics research, which comprises tools for measurement, analysis, and simulation of rooms for music listening and production. Through use of affordable hardware, such as laptops, consumer audio interfaces and microphones, the software allows evaluation of relevant acoustical parameters with stable and consistent results, thus providing valuable information in the diagnosis of acoustical problems, as well as the possibility of simulating modifications in the room through analytical models. The system is open-source and based on a flexible and extensible Java plug-in framework, allowing for cross-platform portability, accessibility and experimentation, thus fostering collaboration of users, developers and researchers in the field of room acoustics.

Keywords : room acoustics; musical evaluation; acoustical parameters; impulse response measurement; computer simulation; optimization.
