  • Academic Title
    MSc Digital Music Processing
  • Course description
    One year full-time, two years part-time by distance learning
    Based on our Digital Signal Processing programmes but incorporating specialist modules and a specialised project, this Masters will help to you to understand not only how today’s audio and music technology works, but also to become a leader in developing the next generations of these technologies.
    There are two options of study available; Digital Music Processing with DSP or with Multimedia, which have slightly different aims. The DSP option delves further into the techniques that can be used for processing, analysis and synthesis. It will provide you with a strong background for further DSP work or research. The Multimedia option incorporates a more general understanding of how music processing is performed in broadcasting systems and in relation to other media. This option also emphasises many of the technical issues currently of concern to industry, such as watermarking, copyright protection and Internet streaming.
