We have also worked and researched the development of a soundscape simulation tool which enables users to ‘design’ their own soundscapes. This tool has been demonstrated to urban planners, architects and acoustics consultants (and Royalty!) and has been seen as highly beneficial to the process of soundscape consideration in urban development. The tool is still in prototype stage and we would be happy to demonstrate it to you and get your input.
