The students will acquire the following competences:
- Know the audio signal in its analog and digital forms, and the processing pipeline for an effective and high performance conversion between both (A / D and D / A chain).
- Analyze and design usual devices and equipments in the professional audio chain, covering both the processing and distribution of the audio signal: processors in time, frequency processors, dynamics processors and mixing consoles.
- Know systems and interfaces for digital interconnection, and audio coding techniques that allow efficient and robust storage and transmission.
- Design and deploy some fundamental applications that involve processing and distribution of the audio signal in professional environments: recording process and mixing of a sound program, stereo and multichannel sounding of audio programs, room equalization for sound reinforcement , etc..
