The objective of this lab course is to give students a hands on experience in audio processing. In particular, functions, transforms, and algorithms that are important for analyzing and processing audio signals are covered. The lab course is supervised by members of the AudioLabs team. Requirements are a solid mathematical background, a good understanding of fundamentals in digital signal processing, as well as a general background and personal interest in audio. Furthermore, experience with PYTHON and NUMPY is required. Experience with the R Programming language is beneficial (beginners tutorial is provided in the course material).
The lab consists of one introduction session (2 hours) and five lab units (30 minutes test sessions per unit).
The introductory meeting will take place on Friday, April 24 2020, 16:00 via a video conferencing tool. Links to the meeting will be provided via StudOn and mail.
Students will work on the lab units from home. Questions can be asked via mail and a StudOn forum. Students will then be examined in pairs via video conferencing, including screen sharing. The solutions must be ready for the examination. These examinations will take place on Thursdays 12:15 - 16:15 and Fridays 14:00 - 18:00. Students will be able to sign up via Doodle for a 30 minute slot among these times (assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis).
All participating students have received their login information now. Please contact Michael Krause if you do not have your login information yet!
