FEKT-ZPOeAcad. year: 2015/2016

Parameters and information content of acoustic signals. Human sound reception. Digitizing of acoustic signals. Digital recording formats and media. Psychoacoustic compression algorithms. Sound and PC, sound cards. Methods of musical signal synthesis. Musical effects and their realization with digital signal processing methods. Parameters of speech signals, speech signal analysis and synthesis. Noise reduction methods for acoustic signals.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students get a detailed overview about digital signal processing of musical and speech signals. They wil be able to design algorithms for acoustic signal processing, which are directly designed for CPU of computer system or for signal processor. They get accustomed to working in the mixing or mastering digital musical studio.
