1. Introduction Since the invention of the cylinder phonograph by Thomas Edison in 1877 and it commercialization in 1887, humanity has used several storage media to record and store audio data. Vast amount of audio recording including entertainment, cultural, educational and research have been stored in these media and their current status is not well known. The stored data in these storage medium is faced with two important and unavoidable ...

PhD position in audio signal processing KU Leuven
The objective of this PhD project is to challenge the widely accepted premise that single-microphone audio analysis cannot rely on spatial or wavenumber domain signal representations. This premise implies that the spatial diversity of acoustic environments (e.g. spatial spreading of sound sources) cannot be exploited in single-microphone devices, hence limiting their applicability in a wide variety of speech and audio applications, including ...

3D audio personalization for virtual reality applications. University of Antwerp
Augmented listening implies the extraction of desired audio signal(s) from a distorted capture. Like human perception of speech, where visual and acoustic cues jointly contribute to the understanding, we aim to improve this extraction by augmenting the audio with visual information. A side-application is the detection of inconsistent streams, hinting at deepfakes or otherwise compromised streams.
Per-tone equalization and per-tone precoding have been developed as suitable tools for digital subscriber line (DSL) transmission in highspeed digital modems. DSL adopts so-called discrete multi-tone transmission (DMT) as a modulation format, which is essentially a Fourier transform based transmultiplexing operation that has indeed been shown to allow for the additional per-tone processing. In this project per-tone equalization and per-tone ...
