The effect of early reflections on perceived timbre - analyzed with an auditory model
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper the effect of early reflections to perceived timbre is studied. We apply room acoustic modeling to obtain simulated impulse responses which are explored. The timbre of modeled impulse responses is predicted with an analysis method motivated by auditory perception. Such analyses are utilized to determine guidelines for the required set of early reflections to be rendered for a high quality auralization. The results suggest that many orders of reflections have to be searched to guarantee that all possible reflection paths before a certain time stamp are found.
