The Sound Engineering Research Group at Anglia Ruskin University focuses on developing knowledge and techniques for the creative audio industries, as well as innovative design in all aspects of audio engineering.
Examples of our work include the development of quantitative methods for accurate, repeatable percussion instrument tuning.
Other recent projects have included research into the psychoacoustic perception of loudness in commercial music releases, development of networked data management systems for interview recording and development of ultrasonic systems for pest control.
These are just a few of the fields in which we’re active and we can supervise research in most fields of sound engineering, within the department and with specialists from other areas of Anglia Ruskin.
Industry plays an important part in our work. The Pleasurize Music Foundation (USA), AV Niche (UK) and STV Pest Control (UK) are just some of our recent collaborators.
