Experiments in Audio

Written by steve Print Email

This blog is a step by step account of audio DSP experiments in an effort to assess the quality of open source DSP code for the simulation of audio effects plugins.

Initially experiments have been carried out within the Guitarix project framework, a guitar amp simulation for Linux.

 I am particularly interested in the simulation of audio valve ( tube ) based amplifiers and effects as over the years I have built many amplifiers for both use as musical instrument amplifiers and hi-fi.

Whatever the reasons there is something magical about the technology that, in my opinion, cannot be matched with solid state technology.

Recent developments in digital technology, faster computers and research into simulation algorithms now make it possible to simulate such circuits.
