Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Digital audio effect applications are pervasive in many fields, from musical signal analysis and synthesis to music production, and from acoustics to machine listening. Innovations in this area are increasingly specialised and advanced, and can be rooted in several technical, artistic and psychological disciplines.

In this Special Issue we welcome both original research papers and review articles on diverse topics such as:

  • Capture and analysis of audio and music
  • Representation, transformation and modelling of audio signals
  • Transmission and resynthesis of audio
  • Effects and manipulation of musical sound
  • Perception, psychoacoustics and evaluation
  • Spatial sound analysis, coding and synthesis
  • Audio source separation
  • Physical, virtual acoustic and analogue modelling
  • Sound synthesis, composition and sonification
  • Hardware and software design for digital audio effects

Submissions will be judged on their academic quality, novelty, and relevance to the topic of digital audio effects, through peer review.

Additionally, authors of excellent contributions to relevant conferences such as the 22nd International Conference on Digital Audio Effects (DAFx-19) in Birmingham, UK, will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to this Special Issue.
