VAEBuilder - A General Purpose Software Tool for the Description and Implementation of Virtual Audio Environments
This document describes the issues relating to the design and implementation of a software tool for creating and exploring arbitrary virtual audio environments (referred to hereinafter as VAEs). A prototype package called VAEBuilder has been developed with some of the functionality described in this document. VAEBuilder is implemented in Visual C++ using MFC and comes with full hypertext or printed documentation for the sources. It is a work in progress, as many of the features and ideas described in this document have yet to be fully worked through or implemented, but even in its present state it acts as an example of how the various hardware and software technologies might be integrated.
