Introduction to Audio Analysis serves as a standalone introduction to audio analysis, providing theoretical background to many state-of-the-art techniques. It covers the essential theory necessary to develop audio engineering applications, but also uses programming techniques, notably MATLAB, to take a more applied approach to the topic. Basic theory and reproducible experiments are combined to demonstrate theoretical concepts from a practical point of view and provide a solid foundation in the field of audio analysis.
Audio feature extraction, audio classification, audio segmentation, audio coding and music information retrieval are all addressed in detail, along with material on basic audio processing, frequency domain representations and filtering, and introductory psychoacoustics. Throughout the text, reproducible MATLAB examples are accompanied by theoretical descriptions, illustrating how concepts and equations can be applied to the development of audio analysis systems and components. A blend of reproducible MATLAB code and essential theory provides enable the reader to delve into the world of audio signals and develop real-world audio applications in various domains.
