Spring 2015

Welcome to the Spring 2015 edition of the IEEE Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing Technical Committee's Newsletter!

We would like to warmly thank all contributors of this issue for lending their precious time and making this possible. We hope that its content will prompt you all to contribute more for the next issues.

This second issue contains three extended contributions and a welcome message. We have a very interesting contribution from Justin Salamon and other researchers about the extraction of melody from music signals. They discuss problems, current trends and open issues in this challenging research area. The second contribution comes from Fabio Antonacci and Massimiliano Zanoni, from Politecnico di Milano, and concerns the problem of characterizing the timbre of violins sound using machine learning techniques. Last but not least, we are pleased to publish the contribution by Vesa Välimäki, which describes the last results obtained in the field of "virtual analog" for the simulation of analog music equipment. Finally, we are happy to include in this issue the welcome message by Patrick Naylor, new Chair of the IEEE Audio and Acoustics Technical Committee.

It is our wish to make this newsletter our forum for updates, editorials and reports; our billboard for advertising new initiatives, for posting announcements and reminders; a place for “provocative editorials”, etc. With this in mind, please send us your contributions, from announcements of general interest (e.g. call for papers) to editorials, comments and suggestions. Please keep in mind that the AASP TC website has a special page devoted to job postings.
