Toolbox for Acoustic Scene Creation and Rendering (TASCAR)

TASCAR is a collection of tools for creating spatially dynamic acoustic scenes in different render formats, e.g. higher order Ambisonics or VBAP. The toolbox has been developed for applications in the context of hearing research and hearing aid evaluation.

For installation of binary packages, please see
