I am looking for a convenient tool to aid me in the general design of a directional sound source based on a loudspeaker array beam steering.
My primary objective is not the design and optimisation of the loudspeaker array per se. I just want to have a general idea of the performance of such a system with given geometrical constraints. So I was looking to fastrack this task.
(My main interest is to implement a source with equivalent directivity performance in a virtual environment to conduct experiments with participants.)
I have found mention of interesting MATLAB implementations, but no code was made available it seems:
I ask you, if you would have any suggestions of packages (preferably free for students / open-source) that deal with the design and optimisation of loudspeaker array beam steering.
Any help would be much appreciated,
