In this page, you can download some applications/implementations that can be of use to test the functionalities of the Toolkit and integrate them in different platforms (e.g. DAW programs, etc.), as well as the source code for the 3D Tune-In Toolkit, and some resources. Technical details about the 3D Tune-In Toolkit spatialiser are described in:

  • Cuevas-Rodríguez M, Picinali L, González-Toledo D, Garre C, de la Rubia-Cuestas E, Molina-Tanco L and Reyes-Lecuona A. (2019) 3D Tune-In Toolkit: An open-source library for real-time binaural spatialisation. PLOS ONE 14(3): e0211899. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0211899

Binaural Test Application

A test application has been implemented to allow to test all the capabilities of the 3D Tune-In Toolkit library through a comprehensive GUI. It can be downloaded and installed for Windows, Mac and Linux. Any mono audio can be loaded in WAV format and binaurally spatialised with all the effects available in the library, including the hearing loss and hearing aid emulators.
Besides allowing to try the 3D Tune-In Toolkit without having to develop an application which deals with audio files and audio interfaces, the Test Application is also a powerful tool for integrating the Toolkit within existing systems (e.g. VR goggles, etc.), as it can be fully controlled remotely through OSC (Open Sound Control).
The latest version of the test application can be downloaded from the following links. All of them include the 3D tune-In Toolkit v1.4, compilation M20191205:

3D Tune-In Toolkit Test app v3.10 for Windows
3D Tune-In Toolkit Test app v3.10 for Mac
3D Tune-In Toolkit Test app v3.10 for Linux (Debian)
3D Tune-In Toolkit Test app v3.8 for Linux (Red Hat)

ATTENTION WINDOWS INSTALLER – the 3D Tune-In Toolkit Test App for Windows looks first for ASIO drivers, and only if no one is found, it looks for Direct Sound drivers (i.e. the integrated interface on your machine). Therefore if you have installed on your Windows machine an ASIO audio interface, the 3D Tune-In Test App will not be able to use any Direct Sound audio interface. You will therefore need to either remove every ASIO driver from your machine (and in this case the Test App will be able to see the on-board audio interface), or to just use the ASIO interface directly.

VST Plugins

VST interfaces integrating various functionalities of the 3D Tune-in Toolkit are now available, including anechoic binaural spatialisation, binaural reverb, hearing loss and hearing aid simulations.

Five plugins are available:

1-Full binaural spatialisation (for spatialising one sound source including anechoic and reverberation renderings within the same interface)
2/3-Separate anechoic spatialisation and binaural reverberation (two separate plugins, which allow to spatialise multiple sources using one single multichannel bus reverberator, therefore making the processing more efficient - please see the MaxMSP and Reaper examples on how to configure your host/DAW)
4-Hearing loss simulator
5-Hearing aid simulator

IMPORTANT - the Mac version is only 64-bits, therefore will not run on 32-bits software.

The 3D Tune-In Toolkit VST plugins are available for both MacOS and Windows in the form of installers; a zip files containing examples of use in MaxMSP and Reaper is also available below - please refer to these for information about the exposed parameters (i.e. those parameters that you can control/automate externally):

3D Tune-In Toolkit VST Plugins v1.1.1 for MAC

Changelog

Fixed

  • Solved a bug in the computation of azimuth and elevation when axis conventions were different from that of the Binaural Test_App.
  • Solved a crash with reverb when elevation is +90deg or -90deg.
  • Now it is checked if the source is inside the head for adimensional and three-dimensional reverb. (It was only in the bi-dimensional mode).
  • HRTF files in 3dti-hrtf format were updated (they were outdated and incompatible with the current version of the toolkit)
  • Bug fixed in IIR filters for the high performance mode.

Changed

  • BRIR files in the resource folder are updated to adjust levels with provided HRTF.
