Signal Processing and Acoustics

The research field signal processing and acoustics is divided into the topics of spatial audio, psychoacoustics and audio-signal processing. These key strengths emerged from the original task of the institute and the challenges which came about in the course of time.

Signal analysis and signal transformation as well as information extraction and sound synthesis, both in the time-frequency domain as well as spatially, provide a fruitful basis for composers and musicologists. Psychoacoustics makes use of signal processing in the creation of objective auditory models and helps to assess the processes of analysis, modification and synthesis in practice in a way corresponding to our hearing.
