Digital Audio Effects (DAFX) is the name chosen for the European Research Project COST-G6. DAFX investigates the use of digital signal processing, its application to sounds, and its musical use designed to put effects on a sound. The aim of the project and this book is to present the main fields of digital audio effects. It systematically introduces the reader to digital signal processing concepts as well as software implementations using MATLAB. Highly acclaimed contributors analyse the latest findings and developments in filters, delays, modulators, and time-frequency processing of sound. Features include : Chapters on
time-domain, non-linear, time-segment,
time-frequency, source-filter, spectral, bitstream signal processing ; spatial effects, time and frequency warping and control of DAFX ;
MATLAB implementations throughout the book illustrating essential DSP algorithms for sound processing ; Accompanying website with sound examples available at http ://www.unibw-hamburg.de/EWEB/ANT/. The approach of applying digital signal processing to sound will appeal to sound engineers as well as to researchers and engineers in the field of signal processing.
