Spectral Modeling Toolbox for MATLAB

A.M. Thesis, Department of Music, Dartmouth College, 2002


This thesis describes the Spectral Modeling Toolbox, a collection of functions for digitally analyzing and synthesizing sound. The techniques in the Toolbox generalize the concepts of other analysis/synthesis systems in an environment created for algorithm design and research. The design decisions and basic techniques are documented in this thesis, and complete source code for the Toolbox is available. The Spectral Modeling Toolbox is an introduction to analysis/ synthesis techniques, a spectral processing tool, and perhaps, the foundation for future sound recognition systems.
