The SoundScape Renderer (SSR) is a versatile software tool for real-time spatial audio reproduction. It is capable of generating driving signals for a variety of loudspeaker-based and headphone-based reproduction methods. Due to its extensive remote-control possibilities, it can be conveniently used as an audio backend in psychoacoustic listening and conversational experiments, for example in the area of spatial telephone conferencing. The main features of the software are described and some aspects about its architecture are presented. Different possibilities are shown how the SSR has already been used for conducting subjective tests.
