Digital audio has become very popular in the last two decades. With the growth of multimedia systems and the WWW, audio processing techniques are becoming popular. There is a wide variety of audio processing techniques, such as filtering, equalization, noise suppression, compression, addition of sound effects, and synthesis. The audio compression techniques have been discussed in Chapter 7. In this Chapter, we present a few selected audio-processing techniques. The depth of the coverage is very narrow compared to the rich set of literature available. The readers who are interested in learning the audio processing techniques in greater details may consult the books listed in the reference section.
