EURASIP 2011 - EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing : Special Issue on Musical Applications of Real-Time Signal Processing (EURASIP Special Issue - 7 2010)

Topics/Call fo Papers

In the recent years, musical signal processing applications have greatly expanded the palette of artistic expression by creating a myriad of new possibilities for music and sound creation and manipulation, as well as music listening. Home recording studios have greatly benefited, as virtually all of the tools needed for music production are now available as inexpensive software. In addition to generating abstract “electronic” sounds, modern synthesis techniques can convincingly simulate many wind, string and percussion instruments, and work on the singing voice is generating promising results. Artificial reverberation, pitch shifting, equalization, dynamic range compression, and other audio signal processing techniques in turn have enabled specialized manipulation of recorded and synthetic sounds for artistic as well as fixative purposes. Sophisticated compression, noise canceling, equalization, and bass enhancement algorithms can provide noise-free, high-quality audio for portable music players.

The ongoing pursuit for both creative and realistic sounds and processing nowadays includes real-time sound synthesis and control, spatial sound, and realistic emulation of analog and vintage effects devices and synthesizers, especially with strongly nonlinear and time-varying behavior. The aim of this special issue is to present current research advances in real-time musical signal processing applications. Prospective papers should be unpublished, and present novel, fundamental research offering innovative contributions from a methodological or an application perspective. The expected scope of manuscripts for this special issue includes, but is not limited to:

Sound synthesis techniques and synthesis control
Musical instrument and singing voice synthesis
Equalization and filtering, dynamic range compression, delay and distortion algorithms
Virtual analog and vintage audio effects
Reverberation synthesis, measurement and perception
Analysis of musical instrument sounds for real-time synthesis
Performance gesture measurement, analysis and synthesis
Active noise control in portable music players
Microphone and loudspeaker arrays
Bandwidth expansion and bass enhancement
Music loudness estimation
Synthesis and computer music languages
Audio coding
Hardware and software implementations
