Abstract

The acoustic stimulus generation in multimodal display systems was investigated. The multimodal display technology was used to reproduce a remotely captured event. In the study, the stimuli were selected as the most representative from a number of transient sound sources that were recorded in a rectangular shaped music hall at McGill University. The vibratory stimulus was generated by gating to a 30 ms duration of the initial portion of the audio signal. It was observed that for most natural impression, the vibration could not lead the acoustic stimulus.
