T2 - An Introduction to Digital Audio Effects
Christoph M. Musialik, Algorithmix GmbH
Joshua D. Reiss, Queen Mary, University of London - London, UK
Udo Zölzer, Helmut-Schmidt-Universität - Hamburg, Germany
In this tutorial we discuss the ways by which signal processing techniques are used to produce effects acting on digital audio signals. The audio effects are systematically classified and discussed, with emphasis on how and why they are used. Practical examples of common effects are provided, along with block diagrams, pseudo-code, and sound examples. During the tutorial, a few effects will be created from scratch and the audience will be provided with the basic background knowledge to design their own effects.
