Sound Field Synthesis Toolbox

Project description

Python implementation of the Sound Field Synthesis Toolbox.



Python Package Index:


Obviously, you’ll need Python. We normally use Python 3.x, but it should also work with Python 2.x. NumPy and SciPy are needed for the calcuations. If you also want to plot the resulting sound fields, you’ll need matplotlib.

Instead of installing all of them separately, you should probably get a Python distribution that already includes everything, e.g. Anaconda.


Currently, the package is not yet available on PyPI (but coming soon!), for now you should get it from Github:

git clone
cd sfs-python
python develop --user

How to Get Started

Various examples are located in the directory examples/


    Illustrates the general usage of the toolbox


    Computes the sound fields for various techniques, virtual sources and loudspeaker array configurations


    Illustrates the synthesis of sound figures with Wave Field Synthesis
