Anglia Ruskin University has bought a Prism Sound Dscope series III digital and analogue audio analyser for use in audio electronics and digital signal processing teaching modules.

The digital and analogue audio analyser will be used to further the studies of students in its computing and technology department.

Dr Rob Toulson, director of the Sound and Audio Engineering Research Group and senior lecturer in electronics/audio and music technology, said: ‘The Dscope series III allows us to add a deeper practical element to the theory we teach, which allows us to equip students for industry when they complete their studies.

‘We’ll use it for the analysis of hardware units, to analyse noise and distortion and digital artefacts in both budget and high-end equipment, loudspeaker testing and analysis, and evaluating valve versus transistor amplifier circuits.

‘But also students use this equipment in their own time as part of their final-year projects.

‘Many students design and build electronic audio or loudspeaker systems as final projects, so the Dscope series III allows them to evaluate their system performance against their initial aims, objectives and design specifications,’ he added.

Toulson said he is impressed by the instrument’s flexible analysis filters which enable highly selective measurements of parameters such as noise, mains hum, individual harmonic distortion components, crosstalk and more, all at the same time.

He added that the capacity to customise and design bespoke analysis algorithms to be valuable in the context of academic teaching and research is valuable in the context of academic teaching and research.
