Prerequisite: A course on digital signal processing.
This course "Music Processing - Synthesis" is closely related to the course Music Processing - Analysis by Prof. Meinard Müller. However, both courses can be taken separately.


The lecture covers digital processing of audio signals with parametric filters and effects as well as sound synthesis for musical applications. Various sound examples demonstrate the contents of the lecture.

Filters and Effects

  • parametric filters: structure and design
  • digital sound effects

Digital Sound Synthesis

  • a short history of computer music
  • wavetable synthesis
  • spectral synthesis
  • physical modelling

Systems for Sound Production and Reproduction

  • sound effects
  • synthesizer and vocoder
  • artificial reverberation
