Das Geheimnis des guten Tons liegt im Verständnis der jeder Musik- oder Sprachaufnahme zugrunde liegenden Gesetzmäßigkeiten. Dies umfasst so unterschiedliche Themen wie Schallerzeugung, Raumakustik und Schallwahrnehmung, Schallwandlertechnik, Signalverarbeitung sowie analoge und digitale Übertragungstechnik. Dieses Lehrbuch gibt einen Einblick in die Tontechnik von den akustischen und nachrichtentechnischen Grundlagen über Aufbau und Funktion der verschiedenen Studiogeräte bis hin zu Mehrkanaltechnik und Klangsynthese. In allen Kapiteln liegt ein besonderer Schwerpunkt auf dem Bezug zur Praxis: Warum klingt ein Saxofon anders als eine Klarinette, wie funktioniert ein Faltungseffekt, was macht ein Noise Shaper und wie bekommt man aus zwei Mikrofonsignalen ein virtuelles Mikrofon? Mit zahlreichen Bildern und Tabellen, Beispielen und Herleitungen sowie mit einem umfangreichen Sachwortverzeichnis dient dieses Buch gleichermaßen als Lehrbuch und als Nachschlagewerk für die tägliche Arbeit in Tonstudio und Konzertsaal. Die vierte Auflage wurde komplett durchgesehen und aktualisiert.

Wie klingt der menschliche Körper? Wie ein rundlaufender Motor - oder wie ein unterseeisches Objekt? Akustische Medien erlauben es nicht nur, Klänge zu speichern und zu übertragen. Sie ermöglichen es auch, bislang vermeintlich stille Phänomene hörbar zu machen. Der vierte Band der »Sound Studies« widmet sich der Frage: Wie entstehen neue wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse und ästhetische Formen durch geschulte Ohren und akustische Darstellung? Die Herausgeber legen damit eine erste umfassende Kulturgeschichte der Sonifikation in deutscher Sprache vor.

Designing Sound teaches students and professional sound designers to understand and create sound effects starting from nothing. Its thesis is that any sound can be generated from first principles, guided by analysis and synthesis. The text takes a practitioner's perspective, exploring the basic principles of making ordinary, everyday sounds using an easily accessed free software. Readers use the Pure Data (Pd) language to construct sound objects, which are more flexible and useful than recordings. Sound is considered as a process, rather than as data -- an approach sometimes known as "procedural audio." Procedural sound is a living sound effect that can run as computer code and be changed in real time according to unpredictable events. Applications include video games, film, animation, and media in which sound is part of an interactive process. The book takes a practical, systematic approach to the subject, teaching by example and providing background information that offers a firm theoretical context for its pragmatic stance. [Many of the examples follow a pattern, beginning with a discussion of the nature and physics of a sound, proceeding through the development of models and the implementation of examples, to the final step of producing a Pure Data program for the desired sound. Different synthesis methods are discussed, analyzed, and refined throughout.] After mastering the techniques presented in Designing Sound, students will be able to build their own sound objects for use in interactive applications and other projects

This book contains a complete and accurate mathematical treatment of the sounds of music with an emphasis on musical timbre. The book spans the range from tutorial introduction to advanced research and application to speculative assessment of its various techniques. All the contributors use a generalized additive sine wave model for describing musical timbre which gives a conceptual unity, but is of sufficient utility to be adapted to many different tasks.

This comprehensive handbook of mathematical and programming techniques for audio signal processing will be an essential reference for all computer musicians, computer scientists, engineers, and anyone interested in audio. Designed to be used by readers with varying levels of programming expertise, it not only provides the foundations for music and audio development but also tackles issues that sometimes remain mysterious even to experienced software designers. Exercises and copious examples (all cross-platform and based on free or open source software) make the book ideal for classroom use. Fifteen chapters and eight appendixes cover such topics as programming basics for C and C++ (with music-oriented examples), audio programming basics and more advanced topics, spectral audio programming; programming Csound opcodes, and algorithmic synthesis and music programming. Appendixes cover topics in compiling, audio and MIDI, computing, and math. An accompanying DVD provides an additional 40 chapters, covering musical and audio programs with micro-controllers, alternate MIDI controllers, video controllers, developing Apple Audio Unit plug-ins from Csound opcodes, and audio programming for the iPhone.The sections and chapters of the book are arranged progressively and topics can be followed from chapter to chapter and from section to section. At the same time, each section can stand alone as a self-contained unit. Readers will find The Audio Programming Book a trustworthy companion on their journey through making music and programming audio on modern computers.

The Oxford Handbook of Computer Music offers a state-of-the-art cross-section of the most field-defining topics and debates in computer music today. A unique contribution to the field, it situates computer music in the broad context of its creation and performance across the range of issues - from music cognition to pedagogy to sociocultural topics - that shape contemporary discourse in the field. Fifty years after musical tones were produced on a computer for the first time, developments in laptop computing have brought computer music within reach of all listeners and composers. Production and distribution of computer music have grown tremendously as a result, and the time is right for this survey of computer music in its cultural contexts. An impressive and international array of music creators and academics discuss computer music's history, present, and future with a wide perspective, including composition, improvisation, interactive performance, spatialization, sound synthesis, sonification, and modeling. Throughout, they merge practice with theory to offer a fascinating look into computer music's possibilities and enduring appeal.

Zum Westkaffee Bei Margot Honecker

Als Margot Honecker im Mai 2016 starb, hatte sie fast ein Vierteljahrhundert im chilenischen Exil verbracht. Nils Ole Oermann ist vermutlich der letzte Besucher aus der Bundesrepublik, den sie dort kurz vor ihrem Tod empfangen hat. Über drei Jahre stand Oermann mit ihr, die sonst jedes Interview strikt ablehnte, in Kontakt und traf sie mehrfach. In "Zum Westkaffee bei Margot Honecker" lässt der Autor diese Begegnungen in Chile Revue passieren - die einstige Ministerin für Volksbildung der DDR sprach verblüffend offen über Sozialismus und Kapitalismus, über die Bundesrepublik und die DDR, über Gregor Gysi, Wladimir Putin und Wolf Biermann. Zugleich zeigte die bekennende Stalinistin keinerlei Reue, wenn es etwa um ihren Beitrag zu einem System ging, das kritische junge Menschen kategorisch von Ausbildung- und Karrierechancen ausschloss. Mehr noch: Im Denken und Fühlen von Margot Honecker war bis zu ihrem Tod die DDR ein intakter Staat. Oermanns Buch lässt den Leser unmittelbar erfahren, mit welchen Hoffnungen und Zielen Menschen wie Margot Honecker die DDR aufbauten. Und warum sich durch Menschen wie sie daraus ein totalitäres Regime entwickelte, das sich vierzig Jahre halten konnte.
