ECE 329 Intro to Computer Music
Experiment #3: Working with Audio in Matlab
February 25, 2020 / Instructor: Paul Watta
- Create a gallery of at least 3 interesting and short sounds. Plot the signal in the time and frequency domains. Choose interesting clips and provide some commentary about how the actual sound relates to what is seen in the time and/or frequency domain, as well as commentary of differences among your chosen sounds. Post on your web page.
- Peruse some of the Matlab examples from the Audio Toolbox or DSP Toolbox. Modify them to do something cool and teach the class what you learned.
- Create an app in Matlab that allows the user to do something useful / cool with audio.
Work with audio in both the time domain and frequency domain.
Explore functionality of Audio and DSP toolboxes
Create a GUI for experimentation and audio creation
Context for Use
Undergraduate elective class aimed at Engineering and Computer Science students.
It was assumed that students had completed a basic computer programming class (though not necessarily Matlab).
An overview of Matlab programming was given in class, with emphasis on working with audio.
Description and Teaching Materials
Students needed to download and install Matlab and the Audio and DSP toolboxes.
Teaching Notes and Tips
Students presented their app to the class and explained how it worked.
