Square Set Sound is a research and design consultancy founded by Dr Alastair H. Moore. Our expertise falls into 3 interrelated areas:

Microphone array design and calibration

  • What is the optimal microphone placement for a particular recording environment?
  • How do the received signals depend on the direction of arrival, in theory and in practice?

Sound scene awareness and enhancement

  • What sound sources are present and where are they?
  • How can we reduce background noise and/or interferers to better hear/understand a particular source?

Sound scene rendering and spatial audio perception

  • How can we create compelling immersive audio experiences?
  • How can we create the illusion of tangible audio sources in our local environment?
