|20130088277||GENERATION OF BAND-LIMITED NOISE WITH TUNABLE CREST FACTOR - A method for generating a signal having a defined bandwidth and a desired crest factor is disclosed. The signal is composed of a number of individual sinusoidal signals, each having an amplitude and a frequency. The method includes determining an exponent to be used in a specific exponential function and corresponding to the desired crest factor, the exponent being determined based on an a priori known relationship between crest factor and exponent; calculating a phase value for each sinusoidal signal using the specific exponential function and the previously determined exponent; and superposing the sinusoidal signals to obtain the signal having the desired crest factor, whereby the phases of the individual signals are maintained.||04-11-2013|
|20130070955||LOUDSPEAKER WITH INTERLOCKING MAGNET STRUCTURE - A loudspeaker having a magnet system and a method of assembling the magnet system are disclosed. The magnet system comprises a magnet and an armature core that is mounted on the magnet. The magnet system also includes a shell pot configured to receive the magnet and the armature core in a hollow interior. The magnet system further includes a shaft that interlocks with the magnet, the armature core and the shell pot, and that is, on one end, mechanically connected to the shell pot. The magnet system also includes a push-on fastener that has an aperture through which the shaft passes and that is secured to the shaft at another end of the shaft such that it applies pressure onto the first surface of the armature core to fixedly position the armature core and the magnet with respect to the shell pot.||03-21-2013|
|20120299937||AUDIO PROCESSING SYSTEM - An audio processing apparatus is configured to process audio signals from a plurality of sources. The audio processing apparatus may include a digital interface to receive status data indicating a status of at least one source, and an optical output device having a plurality of groups of graphics display areas which are respectively assigned to one of a plurality of audio channels of the audio processing apparatus. The audio processing apparatus may also include a control device configured to receive the status data, to determine at least one group of graphics display areas based on the received status data, and to control a graphics display area of the determined at least one group to display graphics generated based on the received status data.||11-29-2012|
|20120201400||AUDIO MIXING CONSOLE - An audio mixing console comprises a first amplifier, an analogue to digital converter, a second amplifier and a gain range control unit. The first amplifier may receive an analogue audio input signal and amplify the received audio input signal with a first adjustable gain. The analogue to digital converter may receive the amplified analogue audio input signal and generate a digital audio signal by an analogue to digital conversion of the analogue audio signal. The second amplifier may receive the digital audio signal and amplify the received digital audio signal with a second adjustable gain. The gain range control unit may identify a signal level overload at the analogue to digital converter and control the gain of the first and second amplifiers, respectively.||08-09-2012|
