Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are notoriously hard to program, however they present significant advantages over other types of processors for real-time audio signal processing applications. In particular, they offer unparalleled performances in terms of latency, computational power, they can process very large numbers of audio channels in parallel, and run at a very high sampling rate (>10MHz). The Emeraude team at INRIA (French National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology) currently focuses on: (i) facilitating the programming of FPGA platforms for audio applications through the use of the Faust programming language and (ii) exploring the potential of FPGAs in this context. During this presentation, we'll give an overview of the opensource SyFaLa toolchain that we've been developing for the past three years and which allows for the programming of Xilinx FPGAs with Faust. We'll also present various projects focusing on different aspects of the potential offered by FPGAs in the context of audio applications: spatial audio, high sampling rate computing, active control of room acoustics, etc.

ABSTRACT & BIO: Mona is an enthusiastic musician, whose focus and passion has been to share the joy of music with others. In 2018, a successful outcome of her innovative music program designed for senior citizens was the turning point for her to decide to change the course of learning piano in a less complex route. Her engineering background helped her to start working on the idea that bridges the gap between music and technology.

The approach to fingering in music has always been and still is one of the major elements of success for keyboard players. Correct fingering assists the performer in delivering a better technical and musical performance. This research presents the best technique to generate fingering for any sequence of music notes. Dynamic programming and mathematics are major parts of this paper, they work alongside rules set by pianists to calculate the most practical fingerings for any musical passage.

The ultimate goal is to facilitate the process of playing the piano using an AR platform. This is helpful for scaling music instructors and allows for efficient teaching. Through solving this problem, virtual instructions would be more productive and impactful. Success of this research applied in the AR field can be applied to robotic tasks in educational programs, video games, and medical fields.
