Course Content (Syllabus)
This course reviews topics taught in the introductory course on Musical Acoustics and expands to more focused topics including:
1. Auditory Physiology & Psychoacoustics (perception of sound level,isophonic curves,loudness level, timbre perception, masking effect etc.)
2. Electroacoustics & Room Acoustics (A,B,C,D filters, sound absorption, absorption index of materials, reverberation time etc.)
3. Microphone characteristics (sensitivity, frequency response, directivity etc.).
