What is MP-3 and how does it do its “magic?”

  • MP-3 is a three (3) layer compression algorithm that was adopted as a standard by the Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG).

  • Audio data is transformed to a frequency spectrum;

  • A masking filter is applied;

  • The residual data is encoded in a more efficient code.

Physics 1251Session 43 MWF Summary and Review

1′ Lecture:

  • This course contains approximately 275 essential facts and concepts.

  • There are 31 significant equations.

  • The sensation of sound depends on psychoacoustical phenomena as well as the frequency spectrum or the vibration recipe.

  • Musical sound is characterized by a harmonic series.

  • Strings, pipes, the voice and percussion, all achieve sound according to their individual modes of oscillation.

The acoustic properties of the room affect the time dependence of the vibration recipe.

The reverberation time is an important property of a room.

I = Io‧ 10 – 6 (t/TR)

TR = 0.16 V/Se

  • V is the volume of the room.

  • Se is the “effective surface area” of the walls S1 , floor S2 and ceiling S3 (in sabin) etc.

  • α is the absorptivity of the surface (in table)

    Se = α1 S1 + α2 S2 + α3 S3 + α4 S4 +…

Physics 1251Unit 4 Session 41 Computer Music

Summary:

  • Read the vibration recipe.

  • The vibration recipe happens because of the normal modes of the source.

  • The normal modes of oscillation result from standing waves in the instrument.

  • Sound is a longitudinal displacement/pressure wave that can be reflected, refracted, diffracted, interfered with, beat and Doppler shifted.
