In this course you will learn about audio signal processing methodologies that are specific for music and of use in real applications. We focus on the spectral processing techniques of relevance for the description and transformation of sounds, developing the basic theoretical and practical knowledge with which to analyze, synthesize, transform and describe audio signals in the context of music applications.

Top class! Very well explained, good examples, excellent learning material, practical exercises, and lots and lots of room for further personal study! Well done guys, and especially Xavier! Cheers!
An absolutely awesome introduction to Audio Signal Processing. The additive introduction of new concepts is capable of teaching any beginner this topic which ordinarily is difficult to understand.
I learned a lot during this course. It took quite a lot of time and energy to complete it, but I'm glad I did. It is now much easier to follow the text of Richard Lyons' book. Highly recommended.
Assignments are easily doable without any application of real analysis skills. You guys should actually ask us to build certain parts of your models so that we achieve that level of skill.
Can I take this course for free?
Yes, there is no fee in this course. You can follow the course, do the assignments, and obtain a final grade completely for free.
Can I pay to get a Course Certificate?
No, we do not offer this option.
What resources will I need for this class?
All the materials and tools for the class are available online under open licences.
Do I need to buy a textbook for the course?
No, it is self-contained.
How much programming background is needed for the course?
All the assignments start from some existing Python code that the student have to understand and modify. Some programming experience is necessary.
What is the coolest thing I'll learn if I take this class?
You will play around with sounds a lot, analysing them, transforming them, and making interesting new sounds.
