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).
Registration via StudOn is required for this lab. Registration is open from 19.10. - 25.10.20.
For questions, please contact Michael Krause.
The lab consists of one introduction session (2 hours) and five lab units.
The introductory meeting will take place on Friday, November 6 2020, 10:00 via ZOOM. 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. There will also be open question sessions on Mondays 12:00 - 14:00 in the weeks of the lab exams. Some homework exercises are to be done in written form on paper. These must be submitted on Tuesdays, 12pm via StudOn (as scans or photographs). Students will then be examined in pairs via video conferencing, including screen sharing. All solutions must be ready for the examination. These examinations will take place on Thursdays 12:00 - 16:00 and Fridays 10:00 - 14:00. Students will be assigned a slot among these times.
