Abstract

Previous research has shown that the perceived reverberation in a room, or reverberance, depends on the sound source that is being listened to. In a study by Osses Vecchi, Kohlrausch, Lachenmayr, and Mommertz [(2017). J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 141(4), EL381-EL387], reverberance estimates obtained from an auditory model for 23 musical instrument sounds in 8 rooms predicted a sound-source dependency. As a follow-up to that study, a listening experiment with 24 participants was conducted using a subset of the original sounds with the purpose of mapping each test sound onto a reverberance scale. Consistent with the literature, the experimental reverberance estimates were significantly dependent on the instrument sound being listened to, but on the top of that, the estimates were significantly correlated with simulated reverberance estimates for the test stimuli as well as for the previously reported long-duration sounds.
