VABase provides a (partly abstract) C++ interface for the Virtual Acoustics framework called [VA](http://git.rwth-aachen.de/ita/VA).

It is implemented by a core ([VACore](http://git.rwth-aachen.de/ita/VACore)) that creates virtual acoustic environments for real-time applications.

To use VA in other applications, you can use this C++ interface directly or via a network protocol where you can connect with a VA server (for example [VAServer](http://git.rwth-aachen.de/ita/VAServer) or [VAGUI/todo](http://git.rwth-aachen.de/ita/VA)) and remotely control it.
There are also binding interfaces for oter languages, like Matlab ([VAMatlab](http://git.rwth-aachen.de/ita/VAVAMatlab)), Lua ([VALua](http://git.rwth-aachen.de/ita/VALua)) and C# ([VACS](http://git.rwth-aachen.de/ita/VACS)).

For the [ViSTA framework](https://devhub.vr.rwth-aachen.de/VR-Group/ViSTA), the [VistaMedia/Audio](http://devhub.vr.rwth-aachen.de/VR-Group/VistaMedia) add-on has an implementation that can run a VA core or control a remote VA server.


### Quick build guide

VA uses [CMake](http://www.cmake.org) and the [VistaCMakeCommon](https://git.rwth-aachen.de/ita/VistaCMakeCommon) build environment to generate project files and find dependend libraries.
