							<h2>What is Virtual Acoustics?</h2>
							<p>Virtual Acoustics is a software that was invented at the Institute of Technical Acoustics (ITA) at RWTH Aachen University in Germany over a decade ago as an auralization application - one of the first of its kind. Now, after contribution of numerous bachelor, master and PhD theses, it has been reinvented to meet state-of-the-art standards in audio rendering and spatial audio reproduction. <br /><i>Intended to be free for everyone.</i></p>

							<h2>This is only a preview!</h2>
							<p>Virtual Acoustics is not ready. There are still some hurdles to take before we can provide VA applications for download. <br />However, we did not want to withhold what is already cleared for use: documentation, interfaces, bindings, repository access.</p>
