Recognizing the audio industry's continuing shift towards thedigital domain, more than half of the AES 111th papers sessions, takingplace November 30 - December 3 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center,are being occupied by the increasingly significant topic of digitalaudio.
"It's worth noting that this year's papers sessions on digital itemsmake up more than half of the program," says Jim Johnston, 111th paperschair. "Signal processing and loudspeaker design are the most commonsubject. Human perception, which was a non-starter 10 years ago, is ina close third place."
Signal procession ranges from applied tutorials by Duane Wise on theinnards of DSP, to room correction and synthesis. Multichannel audio isalso very well represented this year, with several presentations of newwork on both synthesized and captured sound stages, perceptual analysisof reverberation, and examination of listener preference.
