Bullroarer is an audio middleware developed by Cloverbit that can simulate, with a physical model, the propagation of sound in three-dimensional environments. Its development started as a need to improve the sound fidelity of “Echoes From Levia: Soulbound” and evolved as a stand-alone audio middleware. At its present state it is fully integrated into the Unity3D engine and its goal is to provide immersive and precise sound that can achieve 3D spatialization, audio occlusion and propagation, as well as precise playback of sound effects, including reverberations and echoes. Particularly important is how this technology calculates early reflections, which are the main locating mechanism used by the auditory system, ensuring immediate perception of objects or obstacles by the listener. With this technology we wanted to improve the perception of the virtual world at sound level by achieving an audio dynamic proper of the true world, thus increasing the player’s immersion.
