What is DSAM?
The Development System for Auditory Modelling (DSAM) is a computational library designed specifically for producing time-sampled auditory system simulations. It brings together many established auditory models under a flexible programming platform; DSAM includes seven different auditory nerve models (published, 1986-2007), neural cell models, including an efficient implementation of the Hodgkin-Huxley formalism, many utility and analysis facilities, threaded parallel processing for accelerated operation on multi-core systems as well as allowing input/output support for most sound file formats.

Why do you need DSAM?
It supports applications like SAMS that run well known auditory models like the gammatone auditory filterbank, the Meddis hair cell, the Auditory Image Model (AIM) and others."
