Ircam Spat - The complete Room Acoustics Simulation and Localisation Solution
With more than a decade of research performed by the Acoustic and Cognitive Spaces Team at Ircam, being at the forefront of scientific and technological innovations, the Spat is said to be "the most advanced and sophisticated tool for room acoustics simulation and localisation ever designed", managing both spatialisation (source localisation) and room acoustic simulation in a consistent and visually logical way.
Designed for surround and multi-channel use, Spat presents the option to setup the output arrangements providing a variety of stereo and surround configurations, including subwoofer configuration. With eight input and output channels available in Spat, configurations up to 7.1 and 8.0 are feasible.
Spat introduces state-of-the-art techniques for room acoustics simulation utilizing advanced perceptive models, concealing the complexity behind the actual algorithms, allowing for intuitive and accommodating user interaction capabilities.
Ircam Tools plug-ins all provide:
- Up to 8 channels Input/Output.
- 64-bits internal floating point processing.
- Sampling rate up to 384 kHz DXD (Pyramix DSP based).
- Sampling rate up to 384 kHz for native (AU/RTAS/VST).
- Due to the nature of Trax CS/SF, they only support 2 channels.
