The Auditory Modeling Toolbox


About

In 2009, the development of the AMT was initiated by Peter Søndergaard within the AABBA project (Blauert 2009, 2013).

In 2013, Piotr Majdak took over the maintenance and further development of the AMT.

In addition, the following persons contributed to the AMT (in chronologic order):
  • Hagen Wierstorf (2009-): integration of various models, the SFS toolbox, and work on the documentation system
  • Robert Baumgartner (2011-): assistance with maintenance, integration of Langendijk et al. (2002), Baumgartner et al. (2013, 2014, 2016, and 2017), Zilany et al. (2014)
  • Katharina Egger (2011): integration of Lopez-Poveda et al. (2001)
  • Martin Klein-Henning (2011): integration of Dietz et al. (2011)
  • Harald Ziegelwanger (2013-14): integration of Ziegelwanger et al. (2013 and 2014)
  • Alessandro Altoé (2014): integration of Verhulst et al. (2012)
  • Christian Klemmenschitz (2014): examples for the Gammatone filters
  • Martina Kreuzbichler (2016): framework for emulation of experiments
  • Daryl Kelvasa (2016): basic integration of Kelvasa and Dietz (2015)
  • Thomas Deppisch (2017): final integration of Kelvasa and Dietz (2015)
  • ... and smaller contributions from Mark Rene Schädler, Thibaud Necciari, and Sebastian Grill
In general, many organizations were backing up the persons behind the AMT development. Logos at the bottom of the page represent the involved organizations, with a link to the websites of the involved groups.

How to cite

If you use the AMT for your research, cite us:

Søndergaard, P. and Majdak, P. (2013). "The Auditory Modeling Toolbox," in The Technology of Binaural Listening, edited by Blauert, J. (Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg), pp. 33-56. [bibtex]
If you use a model available in the AMT, cite the paper describing the model and the AMT. For example, when using the model for sagittal-plane sound localization described in Baumgartner et al. (2014) you could write:

We used a sagittal-plane sound localization model (Baumgartner et al., 2014) implemented in the Auditory Modeling Toolbox (Søndergaard and Majdak, 2013).
