Honestly I attended a lot of tuning system courses,like Smaart and other softwares but they all lack this kind of presentation on how the filters can play big part on system tuning, this course opened my mind and gave me more confidence to approach any DSP. J.C.
The material is great. I have a reference manual I can refer to in addition the the training I have done with the different DSP manufacturers. This reinforces much of what I have learned from Syn Aud Con in person training. G.P.
As always these courses are fantastic. I always pick up new knowledge even if I have extensive experience with a topic. M.J
It was very well laid out. I ended up going through the course material several times to glean as much understanding as I could. Thanks. D.K.
I learned about setting up teleconference systems the most. S.G
Great course! R.L.
Although very informative, I don’t think enough time is spent on some of the audio theory discussed. D.R.
This was very well done, I think it was about just right for an introduction for audio DSP. I would like to see a follow-on that my be more in depth with some homework and exercises for the students to have to solve problems. R.D.
This course has been great for an easier understanding of phase. I’m not sure how to explain it, but it makes understanding the phase trace on an analyzer easier, and also to have an idea how the phase trace will change after applying different filters. I never had a good understanding of FIR filters, and there are many products that now use this technology. It was nice to have a simpler explanation to understand uses, limitations, etc. E.B
A very good course. S. R.
This is second course I’ve taken from you guys and definitely keep me on my toes! Thanks for the good learning experience. R. M.
As always Professor Pat has done an exceptional job at making these topics the right complexity. W.L.
Thank you very much. I got my certificate and I am very satisfied with this course.
One of my acquaintance show me the text book that he got from SynAudCon OptEQ training course that was hold in Thailand.
And in that book I saw something that I don’t understand , IIR and FIR filter. I try to find information from internet but still not very clear to me.
But on course 120 DSP , Pat explain everything very clear and directly related to the audio and sound system. K.K.
Think I prefer the in person training, but do like the online training for a quick review and RU credit renewal. B. L. (6 time in-person graduate)
This course was very beneficial for me. As someone who sells DSP technology regularly, but hasn’t physically worked with DSP in years, this was a great refresher course. P.S.
It was very helpful in understanding filter types and how/when to use them correctly. Good practical advice on gain staging, too. With SynAudCon, it never seems to matter if I “know” a subject, I learn something new, or realize I had incorrect assumptions about topics. F.C.
By the way, the DSP course was great. I always learn something useful, no matter how familiar I am with the subject. I hope more are in the works. F.C
I felt that the content was good. The presenter did a good job keeping me engaged however I am a hands on learner so some user interaction would be nice. J.B.
Well done as always. After many years I still learn some nuggets from each of your courses. T. F.
Thanks so much! Love the website and the wealth of knowledge there! And the training is good too! K.W.
This course certainly challenged me more than the intro courses. I will be certainly re-reading most of this as the course covered so much it was hard to retain everything. Other than that the explanations were clear, concise, and thorough! J.M.
It was a great course. It was a lot for me to swallow. I would have liked to have the time to take it all at once beginning to end. It was challenging to remember everything. It will ultimately help me in learning different DSP’s now. B.P.
You have a very cool curriculum and has definitely kept my interest. S.A.
This course is very informative for someone with little audio knowledge or background. Thank you for providing this service to learn from. J.B.
Pat’s way to deliver material, either in-person or online, is absolutely the best. Perfect mixture of a visual and audio components. G.O.
Thank you for providing this useful resource, it has clarified a few things for me that I can apply to the DSPs we operate at work, particularly around IIR Vs. FIR. A.W.
I thought this course was quite good. I wouldn’t have minded a few more audio examples, to demonstrate certain applications and results (applications of filters, phasing, etc).
There were some good ones, however even more would be welcome (in my opinion). D. M.
The course met my expectations and the difficulty level was about right. Adding some graphics to the course outlines that match the videos would help when reading through them. A.C.
Thank you so much! I don’t know if many people go through the SynAudCon courses like I am right now, but I thought I would give a little background on my scenario. I have been volunteering at a church plant for a few years with very few resources at our disposal. Along with those limitations come many sound system issues and problems that seem to pop up every time we are ready for a church service to begin.
I recommend all your online classes to my Live Sound students. To me this course did not seem quite as organize as your other online courses. J. C.
After taking these previous courses, I have saved so much time when it comes to troubleshooting and fixing issues in our sound system that honestly were operator errors all the way from installation at our new facility. I’m excited to dig into the Audio Applications!
Thanks Brenda I think about you guys all the time! Please tell Pat that the online DSP class is absolutely fantastic you all did a superb job. I really am being sincere when I say it is way above and beyond any other online class I have ever seen.
Thanks again to you and Pat for the work that you have done to make the SynAudCon training available. G.A.
Oh my goodness you forget not only how much you don’t know when you listen to Pat but also how much he does know. I wish I could just have a download from his mind to mine. J.D.
I enjoyed the course, but was a little annoyed that there was a question on the test about a “brick wall” crossover, and I don’t recall seeing or reading about that in the course material. In general IIR and FIR filters still seem foreign, but I feel I can refer to notes and work through it in real life situations. R.J. I will bring the “brick wall” Crossover to Pat’s attention. B.B
