Loudspeaker signal processing is making the transition from traditional analog designs to digital processing. This is being driven by the availability of digital content, the desire to have wireless products, and the promise of improved sound through digital signal processing. We cover the main concepts behind digital audio processing for loudspeakers. We use a hands-on approach and interactively build up the signal chain using graphical tools. We discuss crossovers, equalizers, limiters, and perceptual loudness controls. Key concepts are reinforced through examples and real-time demos. The session is aimed at the practicing audio engineer and we go easy on math and theory. Instead of writing code we leverage modern design tools and you will leave ready to design your own processing chain.
