Real-time 3D audio rendering software IKA-SIM

IKA-SIM is a real-time auditory virtual environment generator. It's software to aural auditory scenes in virtual rooms. All kind of rooms or environments can be predefined. The listener himself can move in real-time in this environment while listening to several sound sources, which also can be moved interactively. The listener perceive a fully three-dimensional sound reproduction including real-time updated early reflections and late-reverb. The possible output formats are headphones and an array of loudspeakers. This software was, in MUVII, fully integrated in a multimodal environment together with the haptic and visual modality. There is a general application interface (based on RPC) to access IKA-SIM over Ethernet.
