These files contain the code used during the tutorial session "Creating Audio Plugins with MATLAB", last presented at the 146th Convention of the Audio Engineering Society.
The content is designed to teach students the basic skills needed to participate in the MATLAB Plugin AES Student Competition. It is updated as of March 2019 and compatible with MATLAB releases R2018b and R2019a.
The topics covered include manipulating audio signals, processing live real-time audio in MATLAB, packaging MATLAB code as an audioPlugin, exposing audio parameters via user interfaces, turning a MATLAB audioPlugin into a VST plugin, hosting own or other existing VST plugins within MATLAB, and profiling live audio processing prototypes.
The session went through the MATLAB scripts included in the following order:
1. AudioSignalBasics.m
2. AudioStreamingInMATLAB.m
3. PackagingAudioPlugins.m
4. TestingSourceAndGeneratePlugins.m
