Rocchesso D. Introduction to Sound Processing
Firenze: Phasar SRL, 2003. — 256 p.
What you have in your hands, or on your screen, is an introductory book on sound processing. By reading this book, you may expect to acquire some knowledge on the mathematical, algorithmic, and computational tools that I consider to be important in order to become proficient sound designers or manipulators.
The book is targeted at both science- and art-oriented readers, even though the latter may find it hard if they are not familiar with calculus. For this purpose an appendix of mathematical fundamentals has been prepared in such a way that the book becomes self-contained. Of course, the mathematical appendix is not intended to be a substitute of a thorough mathematical preparation, but rather as a shortcut for those readers that are more eager to understand the applications.
Indeed, this book was conceived in 1997, when I was called to teach introductory audio signal processing in the course Specialisti in Informatica Musicale organized by the Centro Tempo Reale in Firenze. In that class, the majority of the students were excellent (no kidding, really superb!) music composers. Only two students had a scientific background (indeed, a really strong scientific background!). The task of introducing this audience to filters and trasforms was so challenging for me that I started planning the lectures and laboratory material much earlier and in a structured form. This was the initial form of this book. The course turned out to be an exciting experience for me and, based on the music and the research material that I heard from them afterward, I have the impression that the students also made good use of it.
After the course in Firenze, I expanded and improved the book during four editions of my course on sound processing for computer science students at the University of Verona. The mathematical background of these students is different from that of typical electrical engineering students, as it is stronger in discrete mathematics and algebra, and with not much familiarity with advanced and applied calculus. Therefore, the books presents the basics of signals, systems, and transforms in a way that can be immediately used in applications and experienced in computer laboratory sessions.
This is a free book, thus meaning that it was written using free software tools, and it is freely downloadable, modifiable, and distributable in electronic or printed form, provided that the enclosed license and link to its original web location are included in any derivative distribution. The book web site also contains the source codes listed in the book, and other auxiliary software modules.
I encourage additions that may be useful to the reader. For instance, it would be nice to have each chapter ended by a section that collects annotations, solutions to the problems that I proposed in footnotes, and other problems or exercises. Feel free to exploit the open nature of this book to propose your additional contents.
