A Web-based System for Designing Interactive Virtual Soundscapes

Current authoring tools that allow audio processing in 3D virtual environments are limited by a lack of specialized features for audio, separate editing and rendering modes, and platform dependency. To address these limitations, we introduce a novel web-based system that makes it possible to control the binaural rendering of a dynamic auditory scene. Specifically, our system enables a highly detailed bottom-up construction of interactive virtual soundscapes by offering tools to populate navigable sound fields at various scales (i.e. from sound cones to 3D sound objects to sound zones). Using modern web technologies, such as WebGL and Web Audio, we developed a cross-platform system that can operate on both personal computers and mobile devices. This enables our system to be used for a variety of mixed reality applications, including those where users can simultaneously manipulate and experience a virtual soundscape.
