Audio Simulator

Sound and Vibration


GENESIS creates realistic, interactive soundscapes using real-time sound audio systems that can be integrated with simulators and virtual reality platforms.

 Interactivity and 3D sound – your keys to unrivalled realistic sound

Our expertise in two key technologies, real-time digital audio synthesis and 3D sound, enables us to achieve realistic soundscapes and a sensation of immersion, acknowledged and appreciated by all our customers.

 Customised services

Our solutions have a modular software architecture. We can provide you with synthesis modules, playback models, 3D sound and effects modules or customised design, development and integration services.

 geneCARS, the Car Sound Simulator

geneCARS is an advanced real-time audio synthesis tool for the generation of car-related sounds: powertrain, aerodynamic and rolling noises, screeching wheels, traffic and starter. 3D real-time processing allows 3D audio rendering of each sound source.

 geneCOPTER, for training and research helicopter simulators

geneCOPTER is a software solution that allows the real-time generation of 3D sound environments  specific to helicopters. It also manages the intercom.

 geneVR, for virtual realiy applications

geneVR allows the restitution of 3D spatialized audio sounds in real time, according to virtual directions and head orientation provided by a head tracker.

Active Sound Design ASD,

ASD is an innovative technology of sound synthesis for active engine sound enhancement.

GENESIS simulation audio systems are specially designed for being integrated into simulators and virtual reality platforms and receive control data form an Ethernet network.

The sound database is open, meaning that customized sounds can be created by GENESIS or by the customer.


The simulators are based on automotive Genesys particularly sophisticated architecture that allows you to create (synthesize) a remarkable series of sounds in ways entirely independent, and play them back in real time to listen to the subjects.

An example of the architecture is shown in the following figure:
