Signal Processing Models in Musical Acoustics

  • Not Offered

3 - 4 units

Letter or Credit/No Credit

Computational methods in musical sound synthesis and digital audio effects based on acoustic physical models. Topics: mass-spring-dashpot systems; electric circuit analogies; finite difference schemes; state-space models and the modal representation; impedance; ports; acoustic simulation using delay lines, digital filters, and nonlinear elements; interpolation and sampling-rate conversion; delay effects; wave digital filters; real-time computational models for musical instruments and effects, both acoustic and electronic. See Prerequisites: MUSIC 320A and MUSIC 320B or equivalent; PHYSICS 21 or equivalent course applying Newton's laws of motion; and CS 106B or equivalent programming in C and C++.
