    • Latency measurement of a real-time virtual acoustic environment rendering system 

      Miller, Joel D; Anderson, Mark R; Wenzel, Elizabeth M; McClain, Bryan U (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Techniques for measuring and estimating the end-to-end latency and component latencies of a virtual acoustic environment are discussed. These key parameters impact the responsiveness and, hence, ``realism'' of a virtual ...

      In this paper we present NeMoS, a program written in Java that allows monitoring of a distributed system with sound. The architecture is client/server: the server collects (by polling via SNMP [16]) data from the monitored ...
    • A new experimental technique for gathering similarity ratings for sounds 

      Fernstrom, Mikael; Brazil, Eoin; Ottaviani, Laura (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Multidimensional scaling techniques (MDS) are a vibrant area of research with much development and advancement in last few decades. In this paper we focus on an interactive 2-dimensional interface for creating a similarity ...
    • Ocean buoy spectral data sonification: Research update 

      Sturm, Bob L (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Since first presenting this work at the 2002 International Conference on Auditory Display the author has professionally produced a multimedia CD that explores the sonification of ocean wave data. ``Music from the Ocean'' ...
    • Optimizing the spatial configuration of a seven-talker speech display 

      Brungart, Douglas S; Simpson, Brian D (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Although there is substantial evidence that performance in multitalker listening tasks can be improved by spatially separating the apparent locations of the competing talkers, very little effort has been made to determine ...
    • Parameters for auditory display of height and size 

      Cabrera, Densil; Tilley, Steven (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      The vertical localization, and vertical and horizontal spread, of auditory images was investigated using a vertical 5- loudspeaker array, with the noise-band signal spectrum, loudness level, number of active loudspeakers, ...
    • Perceptive study and recommendation for sonification categories 

      Susini, Patrick; Gaudibert, Piotr; Deruty, Emmanuel; Dandrel, Louis (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      In the field of audio signaletics, most sound designers have their own recipes to make samples that convey a certain meaning, which we could call auditory function. The aim of the present article is to compare the perceptive ...
    • Perceptively based design of new car horn sounds 

      Lemaitre, Guillaume; Susini, Patrick; Winsberg, Suzanne; McAdams, Stephen (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Due to the technologies used, there exist only a few different kinds of car horn sounds. We propose a method for the design of new sounds, based on a perceptual study of the actual sounds of car horns. Firstly we deal with ...
    • Perceptual consequences of including reverberation in spatial auditory displays 

      Devore, Sasha; Shinn-Cunningham, Barbara (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      This paper evaluates the perceptual consequences of including reverberation in spatial auditory displays for rapidly-varying signals (obstruent consonants). Preliminary results suggest that the effect of reverberation ...
