QMUL Room Impulse Response Data Set 2008


This collection of room impulse responses was measured in the Great Hall, the Octagon, and a classroom at the Mile End campus of Queen Mary, University of London in 2008. The measurements were created using the sine sweep technique [1] with a Genelec 8250A loudspeaker and two microphones, an omnidirectional DPA 4006 and a B-format Soundfield SPS422B.

The filenames indicate the microphone/channel and position. For example, Yx04y10.wav is the Y channel, up-down bidirectional, from the Soundfield microphone at the 5th column from the right of the 11th row from the front when facing the loudspeaker. x00y09.wav is the DPA microphone at the 1st column from the left of the 10th row from the front when facing the loudspeaker.

All files are zip files. Each IR is a 96 kHz, 32 bit wav file.
