Dear List, We are conducting research on auditory model based front-ends for automatic speech recognition in reverberant acoustic conditions. Until now we have used mirror image model for simulating reverberation. However, now we would like to test our models with real room acoustic conditions and therefore we are seeking room impulse responses (RIR). Can anyone suggest where we could find RIRs hopefully in free ware? Suggestions for commercial alternatives are also welcome. For the tesing of our models we would need to have a couple of different reverberation conditions where reverberation time T60 ranges from about T60=0.5sec to T60=3sec. With a simple google search I have found two web sites (see URLs below) giving out RIRs, but these don't unfortunately cover our needs fully. Thanks in advance!
