Product Development: PD12 - DSP Based Loudspeaker Design: Faster and Better Again!

Paul Beckmann, DSP Concepts, Inc. - Santa Clara, CA USA

The majority of loudspeaker products use DSP based processing. This is because most content is delivered in digital form, and digital processing can improve the sound quality over traditional analog approaches. 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.
