This module will introduce you to the analysis of audio signals using a combination of theory and application, and to give you the background needed for a wide range of the technical modules in each year of the Tonmeister programme.
To build on previous mathematical knowledge and understanding to provide the relevant mathematical and signal processing background for topics in Acoustics, Electroacoustics, Computer Systems, Sound Synthesis and Audio Engineering.
|001||Recognise different types of signals and perform simple operations on signals.||CK|
|002||Perform simple arithmetic operations on complex numbers; plot complex numbers on an Argand diagram; recognise the Cartesian, polar and exponential forms and convert complex numbers between the different forms; represent simple harmonic signals as complex phasors.||CK|
|003||Perform simple operations on matrices.||CK|
|004||Use the Fourier series and the Fourier transform to represent a signal in both the time domain and the frequency domain.||CK|
|005||Use computer code instructions to perform a specific task.||CKT|
|006||Use Matlab to plot signals and to carry out simple operations on signals.||CKT|
|007||Apply problem-solving skills successfully||T|
C - Cognitive/analytical
K - Subject knowledge

Introduction to Matlab.
Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to: develop your skills and knowledge in mathematics and audio signal analysis, allowing modules in later semesters to build on this.
The learning and teaching methods include:
One two-hour lecture per week
One three-hour laboratory session
Coursework assignments and feedback
The assessment strategy is designed to provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate and develop your knowledge and understanding of audio signal processing.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
Coursework – one assignment and one in-class test consisting of mathematical problems and programming tasks (addresses learning outcomes 1–2 and 5–7); and
2hr exam – written paper under exam conditions (addresses learning outcomes 1–4).
There are no formal formative assessment components for this module, but formative feedback will be given to you in tutorials as required, and in the form of regular revision questions in lectures.
You will receive written feedback on your coursework. You will also receive verbal feedback in lectures via revision questions and in-class discussions.
