The problem of room acoustics correction in live sound is still an open one. In particular, the audible artefacts caused by low frequency resonances are still a major factor in determining the perceived quality of a live show. Despite many years of research into room acoustics correction, very little research has been done into how this influences the sound at large venues and the difficulties this causes to the working practices of live sound engineers.
In this work, we show how perceptual models of modal resonance in rooms can be applied to designing a novel room response analysis tool that can be used to intelligently guide the mix process and to design music production tools that facilitate the work of sound engineers.
