Modelling, simulation and auralisation of room acoustics plays an important role in computer games and virtual reality applications by increasing the level of realism. Accurate simulation of room acoustics is a computationally costly process which is often substituted with artificial reverberators that provide a computationally simpler alternative. However, such systems lack the accuracy and are not in general able to accurately simulate important aspects of room acoustics such as early reflections, source/microphone directivity, and frequency-dependent absorption. A new type of interactive and scalable room simulator named the scattering delay network (SDN) was recently proposed by the authors. A frequency-domain analysis and implementation of that simulator is presented in this paper. Numerical simulation examples which demonstrate the utility of the proposed system are provided.
