The increasing number of possible applications for spatial audio technologies has caused renewed interest on the subject from academic institutions and resulted in a more widespread diffusion of techniques and practices. However, the lack of an integrated methodology for teaching these technologies is clear. This served as a motivation for our team to develop the Open Ambisonics Toolkit (OAT), a hardware-software system for spatial sound pedagogy. We are actively promoting a democratisation of spatial audio through a DIY approach, and our aim is to serve tertiary educational institutions and individuals alike. For the Conference, we propose a practical, hands-on Workshop with OAT. Participants will be familiarised with its modules, learn about the design of a low-cost Ambisonics system, try out one or more spatial configurations of custom-built loudspeakers, and participate in listening tests, optionally using their own sonic materials.
