# MARDY (Multichannel Acoustic Reverberation Database at York) Database

The objective of this database is to allow dereverberation researchers to access real life multichannel impulse responses. The impulse responses were estimated using the MLS method with an 8-element microphone array.

The impulse responses were measured from three loudspeakers to an array of microphones at three different distances. Impulse responses are named ir_d_P_n.wav, where d is the distance in metres between the microphone array and the centre loudspeaker, P [L,C or R] is the position of the loudspeaker (left, centre or right, respectively) and n is index of the microphone in the array. Element 1 of the microphone array is closest to the right speaker.
