Faculties and centres
This subject is fundamentally about sound design and its realization by means of digital sound synthesis systems. This approach is general and can be applied in principle to any kind of sound, but this subject deals with the study of sound so relevant and so important in our environment economically as it is the music. Sound synthesis has many applications such as the sound of video, film, or video games and any sound is likely to be created, but the truth is that the vast majority of the sound that is synthesized is music.
In this context, this course studies the perception of music and, therefore, the sound design specifications that acoustically cause these sensations. However, the main part of the course is to give a broad view of the catalog of techniques of synthesis most used, with its advantages and disadvantages, and their main applications. Also included are techniques followed by the design of traditional instruments, which will serve as a guide and reference to design synthetic instruments.
The theory is complemented by laboratory practices that will be carried out individual work related to the design and control of digital synthesis using a language of specification creation and sound processing systems.
This subject is related to previous ones, which include acoustics, electroacoustics, Digital signal processing, Digital audio processing and digital image processing.
