ECE 272/472 (AME 272, TEE 472) - Audio Signal Processing - Spring 2017 (was taught in Spring 2014, 2015, and 2016)
This is a 4-credit undergraduate/graduate course covering fundamentals and applications of audio digital signal processing. Topics include sampling and quantization, analog to digital converters, time and frequency domains, spectral analysis, vocoding, analysis and synthesis of digital filters, audio effects processing, musical sound synthesis, and other advanced topics in audio signal processing. Implementation of algorithms in Matlab and on dedicated DSP platforms is emphasized. This course is cross listed as AME 272/472, ECE 272/472 and TEE 472.
ECE 277/477 (AME 277, CSC 264/464, TEE 477) - Computer Audition - Fall 2017 (was taught in Fall 2013, 2014, and 2015)
This is a 4-credit graduate course covering current research in the field of computer audition. Topics include audio modeling, audio features, source separation (splitting audio mixtures into individual source tracks), pitch estimation (estimating the pitches played by each instrument), streaming (finding which sounds belong to a single event/source), source localization (finding where the sound comes from), source identification (labeling a sound source), etc.
Automatic Music Transcription - October 2015
I gave this tutorial together with Dr. Emmanouil Benetos from Queen Mary Unviersity of London at the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) Conference in October 2015. This tutorial reviewed the state of the art approaches, datasets, evaluation measures, applications, challenges and research directions of automatic music transcription by the time the tutorial was presented.
