Course Title: 
Signal Processing Techniques for Digital Audio Effects
Instructor: 
Jonathan S. Abel, David P. Berners
Course Description: 

Cross listed as EE 367D. Techniques for dynamic range compression, reverberation, equalization and filtering, panning and spatialization, digital emulation of analog processors, and implementation of time-varying effects. Single-band and multiband compressors, limiters, noise gates, de-essers, convolutional reverberators, parametric and linear-phase equalizers, wah-wah and envelope-following filters, and the Leslie. Students develop effects algorithms of their own design in labs. Prerequisites: digital signal processing, sampling theorem, digital filtering, and the Fourier transform at the level of MUSIC 320 or EE 261; Matlab and modest C programming experience.
