Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

Audio Effects: Real-Time Control with the Serial Port

Module by: Douglas L. Jones, Swaroop Appadwedula, Matthew Berry, Mark Haun, Dima Moussa, Daniel Sachs. E-mail the authors

Summary: You will implement a feedback-echo effect and adjust its parameters in real time with a MATLAB graphical user interface.

Implementation

For this exercise, you will extend the system from Audio Effects: Using External Memory to generate a feedback-echo effect. You will then extend this echo effect to use the serial port on the DSP EVM. The serial interface will receive data from a MATLAB GUI that allows the two system gains and the echo delay to be changed using on-screen sliders.

Feedback system implementation

Figure 1 (system.png)

First, modify code from Audio Effects: Using External Memory to create the feedback-echo system shown in Figure 1. A one-tap feedback-echo is a simple audio effect that sounds remarkably good. You will use both channels of input by summing the two inputs so that either or both may be used as an input to the system. Also, send several test signals to the six-channel board's D/A converters:

  • The summed input signal
  • The input signal after gain stage G 1 G 1
  • The data going into the long delay
  • The data coming out of the delay

You will also need to set both the input gain G 0 G 0 and the feedback gain G 1 G 1 to prevent overflow.

As you implement this code, ensure that the delay n and the gain values G 1 G 1 and G 2 G 2 are stored in memory and can be easily changed using the debugger. If you do this, it will be easier to extend your code to accept its parameters from MATLAB in MATLAB Interface Implementation.

To test your echo, connect a CD player or microphone to the input of the DSP EVM, and connect the output of the DSP EVM to a loudspeaker. Verify that an input signal echoes multiple times in the output and that the spacing between echoes matches the delay length you have chosen.

MATLAB interface implementation

After studying the MATLAB interface outlined at the end of Using the Serial Port with a MATLAB GUI, write MATLAB code to send commands to the serial interface based on three sliders: two gain sliders (for G 1 G 1 and G 2 G 2 ) and one delay slider (for n). Then modify your code to accept those commands and change the values for G 1 G 1 , G 2 G 2 and n. Make sure that n can be set to values spanning the full range of 0 to 131,072, although it is not necessary that every number in that range be represented.
