    Mix-down (track down) occurs at the final stage of commercial music production. Selecting effectors for each sound track and setting the parameters of each effecter balances the sound from each track in stereo (mix-down design). The mix-down process greatly influences the final sound quality. Recently, professional mixing tasks have been done on digital audio workstations, i.e., software on PCs. I... View full abstract»

    Despite to the relevance of the MPEG-21 standard, little has been done by the collectivity about the modeling of authoring tools for the production of MPEG-21 digital objects. The designs and implementation of an MPEG-21 authoring tool presents several critical points to be solved at the architectural level. This paper presents the AXMEDIS tool core for MPEG-21 content authoring and playing. The a... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (264 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The rapid evolution of musical synthesis and synthetic voice reproduction tools require the concurrent development of new appropriate interfaces and platforms. Moreover, the existence of musical tunings, which do not compromise with the western music approach, requires the addition of extra dimensions in specifications like MIDI. This paper proposes the N-Delta model for music composition and voic... View full abstract»

    Ambient sounds, those tones and noises that occur in our environment, are a field neglected in many ways, one of them being sound synthesis. Almost all sound synthesis techniques aim at the creation of artificial music or speech, their suitability for the synthesis of ambient sound has not been subject to thorough research. Such a short evaluation is one focus of this article, the second one is th... View full abstract»

    The problem treated in this study is how to estimate the quality of playlists produced by an automatic playlist generator. Although a number of solutions have been offered on the topic of automatic playlist generation, very little work was published that regards evaluation of these systems. We are presenting here the experiments we did in order to establish whether a playlist can be evaluated by s... View full abstract»

    In this paper a new multimedia caching strategy is proposed that includes several optimizations to the state of the art. This algorithm takes its roots from the interval caching algorithms but it evolves towards a more adaptive approaching that could obtain a better performance for variable bit-rate streams and serving media stored on multiple disks following different distributions. All of this w... View full abstract»

    In this paper we illustrate the preliminary exploration of a semantic Web scenario where acoustic relationship among audio resources are extracted in a distributed way and made available using the tools of the semantic Web. In this scenario, peers use MPEG-7 to exchange description of audio they are interested in and use these to locally extract different kind of acoustic similarities. When very r...

    Interoperability is key for the real deployment of digital rights management (DRM) systems. A clear example is at the level of rights expression languages (RELs), where two of them are competing to have a place in the market. On the one hand, MPEG-21 REL is an ISO/IEC official standard, and on the other hand ODRL (Open Digital Rights Language) is a public specification that is being used by the Op... View full abstract»
