Digital Waveguide Mesh Modelling Of Room Acoustics: Surround-Sound, Boundaries And Plugin Implementation
Digital waveguide mesh models have provided an accurate and efficient method of modelling the properties of many resonant structures, including acoustic spaces. 2-D rectilinear and triangular mesh structures have been used extensively in the past to model plates and membranes and as potential analogues to 2-D acoustic spaces. This paper looks at current developments relating to this technique and attempts to highlight potential ways forward for this research. This includes an investigation into the potential suitability of this technique for surround-sound applications and a realtime implementation as a VST plugin.
