Part of the research carried out by the Research Centre for Musical Acoustics (MARC), HAMU is in the area of voice research (vocology) and voice psychoacoustics. To facilitate this, the Research Centre has a listening and recording chamber, recording equipment for the recording and acoustic analysis of voice and for electroglottography and equipment for measuring vibrations. From a diagnostic point of view, it has methods of voice range profile analysis, spectral analysis, multidimensional analysis (MDVP KAY Elemetric) and electroglottographic recording. In this area, the Research Centre is developing its own analytical software, RealVoiceLab, for recording and analysis of acoustic properties of voice in real time using remote access via the Internet.

The Research Centre cooperates and offers cooperation with various experts and companies in the field of vocology; with phoniatric outpatient clinics; with voice educators and therapists. It explores aspects of the acoustic analysis of voice, diagnostics and therapy of voice disorders and voice education and aesthetics. Other cooperation with the Research Centre in the field of vocology research may take the form of training in voice acoustics, voice research methodology or statistical data processing.
