Other[edit]

  • Timidity++ (MIDI to PCM (WAV) converter)
    Timidity++ synthesizes MIDI files (sequences) in real-time using Gravis UltraSound Soundfont patches (loosly based upon Wavetable Synthesis) to common digital audio file formats such as, WAV, AU, AIFF, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, etc. Useful for those who want to bypass FM Synthesizers on their sound card's to hear MIDI sequence as it was intended to be heard.)

Testing Software[edit]

Subjective Perceptual[edit]

Note: Might be good to put something here about the problems of quality comparisons using graphs, frequency sweeps, etc.

Testing Methodology[edit]

Audio Development[edit]

note: Let's start with basic development tools (compilers, engineering tools, dev. libraries) until we think of more tools to add. I am also adding external links to books, tutorials, etc under resources.

Tools[edit]

  • MATLAB 7.0 commercial software for algorithmic design, developement, engineering, and scientific computing. (multi-platform support)
  • GNU Octave open-source alternative software (GPL) to MATLAB for numerical computations, engineering, and scientific computing. (multi-platform support)
  • FFTW Is a C subroutine library for computing the Discrete Fourier transform (DFT) in one or more dimensions on real and complex inputs.
  • GCC THE GNU compiler collection for C, C++, Objective-C, Fortran, Java, and Ada.
  • GNU Emacs an extensible, customizable, self-documenting real-time display editor. Great for writing all types of source code especially on Unix. (multi-platform support)
  • DevCPP free front-end IDE and compiler for the C and C++ languages. Delphi and C source code available. (Win 9x, NT, 2000, and XP)

Resources[edit]

  • Scientific/R&D Forums for Psychoacoustic, DSP, Electrical Engineering, theory, and coding related questions. (most questions are generally answered)
  • AES The Audio Engineering Society website. Home of year-round world AES conferences.
  • DSP Tutorials this site provides another good introduction in to the area of DSP.
  • Music-DSP source-code archive for analysis, filters, effects and synthesis. (C, C++, and Java code)
  • HRTF A database of measurements and research papers on Head Related Transfer Functions for 3D-Audio. (PDF, Audio)
  • MIDI Specifications MIDI 1.0, the new MusicXMF specification, and SP-MIDI for third generation 3GPP mobile devices (PDF)
  • OpenAL a beginners tutorial on writing code using OpenAL for audio programming in computer games and other applications. (C, C++).
  • ALSA Project (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) bringing audio and MIDI capabilities to Linux.
  • A Really friendly guide to Wavelets A good introduction to wavelets aimed towards engineer, requires a fair amount of background knowledge.

Books/Research[edit]

Audio Resources[edit]

Websites[edit]

Note: Let's include a small description to the side for now, so that we have something to work with when this section becomes large enough for its own page

Articles/Debates[edit]

Listening Tests[edit]

Other Topics[edit]

Video[edit]

Container formats[edit]

Glossary[edit]

Introduction & User Guides[edit]

A starting place for new users to audio, with guides to compression and CD ripping and a glossary of all common terms.


Audio Codecs[edit]

Pros/cons, Recommended settings, Useful tools, etc.


Container Formats[edit]

What is a container format?


Audio Hardware & CD Ripping[edit]


Tests[edit]


Downloads[edit]

Where to obtain the software discussed in HAK.


Using HAK[edit]

  • Wiki User Guide
  • Play around at the Sandbox to try your formatting skills. Everything goes here and everything can/may be deleted.
  • Contributors should read editing help.
