Abstract

The usual parameters in room acoustics are used to quantify the acoustic characteristics of rooms and their relation to the subjective perception of transmitted signals. Audio features (calculated with MIRToolbox) have been designed to study the relationships between the characteristics of musical audio files and their subjective perception. Both musical characteristics and acoustic parameters are oriented towards acoustic perception. By using auralizations with calibrated models of auditoriums and tools from the MIRtoolbox it is possible to jointly work with the calculation of audio features and room parameters. In this work, the statistical correlations between C80, STI, D50, EDT, RT and certain audio features have been analyzed. The Pearson r values are higher than 0.8 in all cases. These high correlations enable acoustic parameters to be calculated from the musical characteristics of auralized audio signals.
