This would be terrific if it were possible.  I don't see how we'd do
it --- we'd have to somehow model the exact noise characteristics of
both our room and our microphone channel in a way that we could
accurately simulate it.  The room itself is reverberant, not
especially regularly shaped, and there are several different known and
somewhat non-stationary sources of nosie.  Doing a simuation seems to
be way more work than just recording a bunch of data through the
channel, if it's doable at all.
