  • Digital Audio Effects (DAFX) covers the use of digital signal processing and its applications to sounds
  • Discusses digital audio effects from both an introductory level, for musicians, and an advanced level, for signal processing engineers
  • Explains what can be done in the digital processing of sounds in the form of computer algorithms and sound examples resulting from these transformations
  • Brings together essential DSP algorithms for sound processing, providing an excellent introduction to the topic
