  • Audio processors as a learning tool for basic acoustics 

    Pejuan Alcobé, Arcadi; Novell Enrech, Montserrat H. (2009-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Basing on the audio processor Audacity, this paper presents the use of this kind of programs as a so called “hear-and-see” learning tool for basic acoustics. Some activities designed as laboratory experiments, which can ...
  • Comparative study of three audio processors as environments for laboratory activities on wave physics and acoustics 

    Pejuan Alcobé, Arcadi; Bohigas Janoher, Xavier; Jaen Herbera, Javier; Periago Oliver, M. Cristina (2013-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Audio processors allow to implement laboratory activities specially on acoustics. We have evaluated three audio processors (Audacity, WaveLab, and Adobe Audition). Although an overall grade was also calculated as a ...
