The aim of this course is to introduce students to physical and psychoacoustics, digital audio technologies, sound processing and synthesis techniques specific for live sound, audio and music applications. Special emphasis is placed on practice with the support of audio-specific software.
Teaching and Learning Methods: Lectures, lab. sessions, and homework.
Course Policies: The final project and attendance at the practical sessions are mandatory.
