Episode 98 Treble Technologies – Next Generation Acoustic Simulation (Part 1)


In this episode of the Immersive Audio Podcast, Oliver Kadel travels to Reykjavik, Iceland, to meet Treble Technologies whose mission is to enable a better-sounding world. Treble is a start-up that built the world’s leading acoustic simulation platform that can generate interactive, real-time, immersive audio-visual auralizations. In this two-part series, we will explore the complex world of acoustic simulation.

In this first part, we meet Treble’s core founding team members, where the CEO Finnur Pind tells a full story of what motivated them to start the company. You will learn what acoustic simulation is, how the Treble platform works across different use cases and you will hear a real-time binaural audio demo of Treble auralization.
