Audio signal processing is at the heart of recording, enhancing, storing and transmitting audio content. Audio signal processing is used to convert between analog and digital formats, to cut or boost selected frequency ranges, to remove unwanted noise, to add effects and to obtain many other desired results. Today, this process can be done on an ordinary PC or laptop, as well as specialized recording equipment. Warren Koontz provides an introduction to this important topic with an emphasis on digital audio signal processing. Starting with a basic overview of sound and analog audio signals, he proceeds through the processes of sampling and quantizing to digital audio signals. The book introduces and develops both time and frequency domain processing of digital audio signals and, in the later chapters, examines specific applications such as equalizer design, effect generation and file compression. Introduction to Audio Signal Processing will appeal to undergraduate engineering and engineering technology students. Using examples and exercises with MATLAB scripts and functions, including MATLAB streaming audio, students will be able to process audio in real time on their own PC.
