The control of directivity represents a new stake in the reproduction of sound sources by an electroacoustic device. This paper first reminds the principle of a general method for reproducing the acoustical field radiated by a source. The present study, is devoted to the bandwidth improvement and to the optimization of the directivity control. It rests on the preliminary constitution of a set of basic directivities from which it is possible to tune the cardioicity and the three-dimensional orientation of the synthesized directivity pattern. For the simulation of musical instruments, it is important to maintain independent control on the spatial and spectral characteristics. For that, an analysis/synthesis method of the power spectrum is used to provide the automatic design of a correction filter to applied on near field recording before feeding the source. Results are discussed considering room acoustics criteria and examples of musical instruments.
