BackgroundMAD Monkey is a project of the Psychology Department's Sonification Lab at Georgia Institute of Technology, overseen by Bruce Walker, PhD. This system was motivated by the System for Wearable Audio Navigation because there was no design tool for the auditory interface. MAD Monkey is software which allows a designer to prototype a spatialized audio environment, and contains much of the functionality that a full-fledged design environment should have.
MAD Monkey is written in MATLAB. Any computer with MATLAB installed should be able to run the application.
