Auditory Modeling Toolbox

Supported by SONICOM, the Auditory Modeling Toolbox (AMT) is a MATLAB/Octave toolbox for the development and application of computational auditory models with a particular focus on binaural hearing.

SOFA (Spatially Oriented Format for Acoustics)

SOFA is a file format for storing spatially oriented acoustic data like head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) and binaural or spatial room impulse responses (BRIRs, SRIRs) that has been standardized by the Audio Engineering Society.

3D Tune-In Toolkit

The 3DTI Toolkit is a standard C++ library for audio spatialisation and simulation using headphones, which aims at using 3D sound and simulating hearing loss and hearing aids within virtual environments and games. The Toolkit allows the design and rendering of highly realistic and immersive 3D audio, and the simulation of virtual hearing aid devices and of different typologies of hearing loss.

Developed as part of a previous project involving several SONICOM partners, the Toolkit will soon be replaced by the Binaural Rendering Toolbox, which will be fully developed within SONICOM.
