Download Sound spatialization based on fast beam tracing in the dual space
This paper addresses the problem of geometry-based sound reverberation for applications of virtual acoustics. In particular, we propose a novel method that allows us to significantly speed-up the construction of the beam tree in beam tracing applications, by avoiding space subdivision. This allows us to dynamically recompute the beam tree as the sound source moves. In order to speedup the construction of the beam tree, we determine what portion of which reflectors the beam “illuminates” by performing visibility checks in the “dual” of the geometric space.
Download Automatic synthesis strategies for object-based dynamical physical models in musical acoustics
Current physics-based synthesis techniques tend to synthesize the interaction between different functional elements of a sound generator by treating it as a single system. However, when dealing with the physical modeling of complex sound generators this choice raises questions about the resulting flexibility of the adopted synthesis strategy. One way to overcome this problem is to approach it by individually synthesizing and discretizing the objects that contribute to the generation of sounds. In this paper we address the problem of how to automatize the process of physically modeling the interaction between objects, and how to make it dynamical. We will show that this can be done through the automatic definition and implementation of a topology model that adapts to the contact and proximity conditions between the considered objects.
