Genelec’s Aural ID software technology enables a ‘more truthful and reliable sound’

Genelec has launched it new Aural ID software technology, which takes a user’s unique acoustic attributes to develop a detailed modelling of the anatomical features affecting their hearing, and then compensates for this. The manufacturer states that this enables a ‘more truthful and reliable sound’ when using headphones for reproduction and monitoring. The Finnish manufacturer views academic research, immersive audio monitoring, VR and games development as potential applications for this technology.

Aural ID calculates the listener’s personal Head Related Transfer Function (HRTF). The HRTF encompasses the acoustical properties of the head, upper torso and external ear, as these elements interact in ways that ultimately affect how sounds reach the eardrums. The software then creates a personal data file that modifies sound arriving from any direction according to the user’s characteristics. This file also allows an audio engine to render stereo or immersive content via headphones.

Users upload a 360° video of their head and shoulders to Aural ID. The calculation process will then build a 3D model scaled to the same dimensions of the user’s proportions, paying particular attention to the modelling of the external ears. Acoustic fields are then analysed and calculated to capture detailed acoustic phenomena. The acoustic fields are computed

for audio approaching the head from hundreds of angles. Finally, the HRTFs are created and the data is compiled in a downloadable SOFA file.
