Virtual Microphone Control (ViMiC)

The Virtual Microphone Control (ViMiC) system provides a computer-generated virtual environment for sound spatialization. ViMiC is a real-time rendering system, particularly for concert situations and site-specific immersive installations. Drawn from psycho-acoustical research and the principles of audio recording techniques, ViMiC generates loudspeaker feeds which differ in terms of amplitude and time-delays. Furthermore, the generation of time-accurate early reflections increases the auditory illusion of spatialization. Through its flexible configuration, ViMiC particularly supports non uniform loudspeaker arrangements.
