Balloon pops are convenient for probing the acoustics of a space, as they generate relatively uniform radiation patterns and consistent “N-wave” waveforms. However, the N-wave spectrum contains nulls which impart an undesired comb-filter-like quality when the recorded balloon pop is convolved with audio. Here, a method for converting recorded balloon pops into full audio bandwidth impulse responses is presented. Rather than directly processing the balloon pop recording, an impulse response is… Expand
Methods for Extending Room Impulse Responses Beyond Their Noise Floor
Two methods of extending measured room impulse responses below their noise floor and beyond their measured duration are presented. Both methods extract frequency-dependent reverberation energy decayExpand
Spatial Impulse Response Measurement in an Urban Environment
Acoustic impulse responses are used for multiple applications in sound design and auralisation. They are often recorded in real-world environments, and through the use of convolution can provideExpand
A FEEDBACK CANCELING REVERBERATOR
A real-time auralization system is described in which room sounds are reverberated and presented over loudspeakers. Room microphones are used to capture room sound sources, with their outputsExpand
Convex Regularizations for the Simultaneous Recording of Room Impulse Responses
TLDR
The proposed algorithm makes it possible to estimate the RIRs to a reasonable accuracy even when the number of recorded samples is smaller than the numberof RIR samples to be estimated, thereby leading to a speedup of the recording process compared to state-of-the-art RIR acquisition techniques.

An Architecture for Reverberation in High Order
This paper describes a reverberation architecture implemented within the signal chain of a periphonic HOA (High Order Ambisonics) audio stream. A HOA signal (3rd order in the example implementations)Expand
RESIZING ROOMS IN CONVOLUTION, DELAY NETWORK, AND MODAL REVERBERATORS
In music recording and virtual reality applications, it is often desirable to control the perceived size of a synthesized acoustic space. Here, we demonstrate a physically informed method forExpand
Byzantium in Bing : Live Virtual Acoustics Employing Free Software
A Linux-based system for live auralization is described, and its use in recreating the reverberant acoustics of Hagia Sophia, Istanbul, for a Byzantine chant concert in the recently inaugurated BingExpand
Fifty Years of Artificial Reverberation
TLDR
An improved parametric model for a spring reverberation unit is presented, which is currently mainly used for simplified geometries or to generate reverberation impulse responses for use with a convolution method. Expand
The effect of early reflection distribution on perceived stage acoustic conditions
It is widely accepted that performing musicians adjust their technique according to the acoustic conditions they hear on stage. It is likely that a musician performing in favourable acousticExpand

“N Waves” from Bursting Balloons
When a round balloon is burst “perfectly,” the resulting acoustic disturbance should have the shape of the letter N. In the experiments reported here, the N wave is received by a baffled microphone,Expand

Simultaneous Measurement of Impulse Response and Distortion with a Swept-Sine Technique
TLDR
A novel measurement technique of the transfer function of weakly not-linear, approximately time-invariant systems is presented, based on an exponentially-swept sine signal, applicable to loudspeakers and other audio components, but also to room acoustics measurements. Expand
Comparison between In-situ recordings and Auralizations for Mosques and Byzantine Churches.
TLDR
Three of the rooms in the CAHRISMA project, which investigates the acoustics in some of the old churches and mosques in Istanbul, were compared and two types of In-situ recordings have been compared with simulated auralizations in selected positions. Expand
