Course Overview

Music 420A (EE 367A) is about computational acoustic modeling for digital audio effects, sound synthesis, and signal processing for physical modeling in general. Topics addressed include overview of model types; sampled traveling waves; acoustic simulation using delay lines, digital filters, and nonlinear elements; comb filters, allpass filters, and artificial reverberation; delay-line interpolation and sampling-rate conversion; phasing, flanging, and chorus effects; computational models of selected musical instruments; virtual analog modeling; and efficient finite difference schemes and state-space (modal) models. Musical instruments considered include plucked, struck (piano), and bowed strings; woodwinds (primarily the clarinet); flute and organ pipes; and brasses.
