Sound Processing

2018/2019

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

This class introduces sound technology from the viewpoint of sound synthesis and digital audio effects. The proper application and development of such systems requires competencies in the acquisition and manipulation of sounds.

 

Learning objectives

Knowledge

Students who complete the course module will obtain the following qualifications:

  • Understand the application of transforms to analyze signals and systems.
  • Understand digital sampling, quantization, and reconstruction of audio signals, and the variety of technical specifications that accompany such systems, e.g., sampling rate, bit rate, quantization resolution, etc.
  • Understand filter implementations (IIR, FIR, forms) and their differences.
  • Understand delay lines and delay based effects (flangers, vibrato, chorus, echo).
  • Understanding modulators and demodulators.
  • Understanding spatial effects.

Skills

Students who complete the course module will obtain the following qualifications:

  • Implement and apply filters to sound and music signals and evaluate the results.
  • Apply knowledge to the design of digital audio effects.

Competences

Students who complete the course module will obtain the following qualifications:

  • Apply appropriate methods and tools to analyze a sampled audio signal and evaluate with a high level of detail the content represented in the data.
  • Apply appropriate methods and tools to analyze a digital system and evaluate with a high level of detail how it affects sampled audio data passed through it.
