Automated system level testing of a software audio platform

  title={Automated system level testing of a software audio platform},
  author={Marko Takanen},
Mobile computing devices have great current and future potential in new audio processing applications. The Entertainment Audio Platform is a software package that enables such applications. This thesis describes the design and implementation of the methods required for automated testing of mixing, sampling rate conversion, and dynamic range controller functionality of the software. Literature from both software and conventional audio testing is reviewed in the thesis, and relevant methods are… Expand
An Automated Testing Suite for Computer Music Environments
Software development benefits from systematic testing with respect to implementation, optimization, and maintenance. Automated testing makes it easy to execute a large number of tests efficiently onExpand


Fundamentals of Modern Audio Measurement
Fundamental concepts in testing audio equipment are reviewed, beginning with an examination of the various equipment architectures in common use and the need for simultaneity of digital and analog generation is presented using converter measurements as an example. Expand
Software Testing Techniques
The aim is to compare different testing techniques and what efforts it takes to find genuine failures on particular level of test. These levels are e.g. unit/component level, i.e. code/designer levelExpand
RECOMMENDATION ITU-R BS.1387-1 - Method for objective measurements of perceived audio quality
  • 2002
The ITU Radiocommunication Assembly, considering a) that conventional objective methods (e.g. for measuring signal-to-noise ratio and distortion) are no longer adequate for measuring the perceivedExpand
Automated test oracles for GUIs
A test oracle technique to determine if a GUI behaves as expected for a given test case, using a formal model of a GUI, expressed as sets of objects, object properties, and actions. Expand
This article describes research and development on car noise and vibration by the German car manufacturer Opel. Opel now has one of the world's largest anechoic chambers, 22m long by 16m wide. It canExpand
Comparison of different impulse response measurement techniques
The impulse response of an acoustical space or transducer is one of its most important characterizations. In order to perform the measurement of their impulse responses, four of the most suitableExpand
Estimating frequency and amplitude of sinusoids in harmonic signals—a survey and the use of shifted Fourier transforms
A parameter estimator based on ODFT is presented which provides accurate results and becomes useful in MDCT based audio coding and it is exemplarily demonstrated that a combined analysis with DFT and ODFt can reduce the estimation error at low frequencies. Expand
Test Oracles
All software testing methods depend on the availability of an oracle, that is, some method for checking whether the system under test has behaved correctly on a particular execution. An ideal oracleExpand
A Perceptual Audio Quality Measure Based on a Psychoacoustic Sound Representation
A general method for predicting the subjectivity quality of speech codecs has been developed. This method uses the concept of an internal sound representation. A model of the human auditory system isExpand
Transfer-Function Measurement with Sweeps
Transfer-function measurements using sweeps as excitation signals rather than pseudonoise signals show significantly higher immunity against distortion and time variance. Capturing binaural roomExpand
