Digital audio systems

First paper on the limitations and problems of digital audio systems, their time-smear of signals and audible artifacts (in Dutch).


Second paper on the problems with digital audio systems, focussing on the additional noise, generated by the interaction of the filtering and the quantisation in amplitude domain (in Dutch).


Calculation of the Wigner distribution

Short paper in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society (1985) of a simple, numerical technique to duplicate the sampling frequency of a periodically sampled signal to make it suitable for the calculation of the discrete Wigner distribution (time-frequency presentation, in English).


Fourier theory for dummies

Simple explanation of the background of Fourier analysis and synthesis “for dummies” to create awareness of the technique (in Dutch).


Characterization of temporal response

Paper for the AES conference in Berlin (1993) on the use of “temporal decay” for the audible quality estimation of (reconstruction) filters (in English).


Distortion by capacitors

Paper for the AES conference in Amsterdam (2008) in cooperation with Menno van der Veen (first author) on the non-linear distortions of capacitors and other passive components (in English)

Correct temporal response

Paper, based on a presentation for the Dutch section of the AES (2001) on the requirements, properties and advantages of a correct response of an audio system in time domain (in English).



Anecdotical stumbling blocks on the long road to the current systems of Temporal Coherence (in English).
