The IDMIL Digital Audio Workbench



John Sullivan


The IDMIL Digital Audio Workbench aims to provide an accessible interactive platform for intuitively exploring key concepts in digital audio.

Both Time- and Frequency-domain views of signals are presented, as well as audio rendering of parameter manipulation.

Numerous modular graphs are available, which can aid in teaching and studying issues such as aliasing, quantization, the effect of dithering, and more.

Please follow the links below to explore different subsets of the workbench:
