The article reports on the implication of digital technology for controlling sound production. In digital processing, it is of great value to ensure that analog input and output levels, along with digital level changes, maintain the signal within the normal operating range. Advanced processing can implement a form of Fourier transform to change the time duration without affecting the pitch of the audio.

    In this paper we study the reconstruction of a bandlimited signal from samples generated by the integrate and fire model. This sampler allows us to trade complexity in the reconstruction algorithms for simple hardware implementations, and is specially convenient in situations where the sampling...

    The article discusses signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) specification. SNR is a calculated value that represents the ratio of root mean square (rms) signal to rms noise. By multiplying the log10 of this ratio by 20, SNR in decibels may be derived. Assuming that the input signal is sinusoidal, the...
