Audio Signal Processing
This Special Issue gathers 20 fine contributions on audio signal processing, a topic which belongs to the Applied Acoustics section in this journal, Applied Sciences. These articles include revised and extended versions of three papers which won Best Paper Awards at the 2015 International Conference on Digital Audio Effects (DAFX-15) and also new versions of three papers which were presented at the 2015 International Computer Music Conference (ICMC-15).
Submissions were received from many parts of the world, such as Asia, Europe, and North America, and from some of the largest research units in this field, such as CCRMA (Stanford University, CA, USA), IRCAM (Paris, France), the International Audio Laboratories Erlangen (Erlangen, Germany), and the Center for Digital Music (Queen Mary University of London, UK). All manuscripts went through a rigorous peer review. Many fundamental topics in audio signal processing are dealt with in this collection, including active noise control, audio effects processing, automatic mixing, audio content analysis, equalizers, machine listening, music information retrieval, physical modeling of musical instruments, sound reproduction using headphones and loudspeakers, sound synthesis, spectral analysis, and virtual analog modeling.
