The paper chronicles the various strategies which have evolved towards the artificial synthesis of shipboard generated sounds for marine and bridge simulators Analogue reproduction methods were the precursor and while they were generally effective in creating an audible verisimilitude, they were very limited in their ability to synthesise rapidly changing sounds. Contemporary designs have concentrated upon using digital techniques, which afford a significantly greater degree of flexibility, together with an improved quality of acoustic faithfulness. The paper will describe the design rationale for a replete Digital Sound Synthesiser System together with a synopsis of current research developments.
