    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    A novel surround sound control system was set up to allow students to demonstrate their use of sound placement. Using audio created for submission as part of a coursework, students were given an opportunity to utilise an alternative means of surround panning which extended their understanding of surround sound production. Using the Nintendo Wiimote as the basis for the controlling system an accessible and relatively low cost system was developed and trialled with students.
